Giulia TI Super

Does anyone know where I can find serious and relevant information on the TI Super? That is, one of the 501 originals?
In Fusi I have found the chassis number listings, but what I really want to know is where tot find the unique differences found only on these cars etc.
Is there a person, a registry or what?

Thank you

Information on the TI Super

Hi,

Of course a workshop/parts manual would help and state all the goodies on these cars. Don't know where to get one.

On my bookshelf I found two books that have a couple of pages on TI Supers:

The Book 'Quattroruote Alfa Romeo Giulia' (Editorale Domus 2006) with a roadtest and pictures of the interior (which is quite different).

The Book 'Alfa Romeo Berlinas' by John Tipler (Veloce publishing ) with a technical explanation of why TI Supers are different from other Giulia Berlinas (brakes etc...).

Ciao!

Auto Italia magazine in the UK did a road test of one of the original cars a few years ago. Contact them and see if they can send you a back issue.

More information

Hi Rik,

Lots more of technical information on the TI Super in the book 'Auto's die Geschichte machen' by Dirk-Michael Konradt, Motorbuch Verlag ISBN 3-613-01304-5.

Ciao, Olaf

I'm a long way from my collection of those magazines, so you'll have to email the publisher. From memory, the car was on the front cover ...

Good luck,

Alex.

There have been several articles written about the TI Super, but I do not know of an internet source of accurate TI Super info. Ed McDonough, a longtime Alfa racing writer and enthusiast wrote a pretty good article which was published in "Vintage Racecar and Market Journal" in October 2002. He credits:

D'Amico and Tabucchi (D'Amico, S. and Tabucchi, M.)
Alfa Romeo Production Cars (1996 edition) Giorgio Nada, Milan, Italy

Fusi (Fusi, L.)
Alfa Romeo All Cars From 1910 (1978 Edition)
Emmeti Grafica, Milan, Italy

Savill, C.
Giulia TI Super Racing Pedigree,
Alfa Romeo Owner's Club Magazine,
V35, No. 2, 2001 (The 2001 reference is incorrect, Volume 35 would have been in 1992, so it should be in the February 1992 Alfa Owner Magazine)


If I had that Alfa Owner I would help you better, but as it is, all I have is the McDonough article. Good luck with your research.

The German site alfisti.net is sometimes slightly inaccurate on these issues, but here's what they have to say.

From http://alfisti.net/modellhistorie/sh...lang=de&id=423 :

Racing homologation special, 90 kg lighter than the TI (i.e. 910 kg empty weight). 1600 engine, double carburettors, 113 hp. Sports seats in front, floor shifter, brake discs on all four corners, alloy wheels. Easily recognizable with mesh instead of inner front lights and original quadrofoglio stickers on front fenders and trunk lid.

I run the US Giulia Sedan Register, and the Berlina Register worldwide, and Barry Edmunds in Australia runs the rest of the world Giulia Sedan Register. I'm not a TI Super expert, but Barry and I do have some information on the cars. There are 6-8 I know of in the US; Barry probably knows of a lot more elsewhere.

Go to www.berlinaregister.com and click on View the Giulia Register to see all the Giulias, including TI Supers, I know of in the US. I don't believe Barry has anything online.

There has been a fair amount of discussion of TI Supers on the sedan topic here on the AlfaBB, including recent pics of a very original car in the US.

I thought Dave Mericle Jr ran the US Giulia berlina register and you ran just the 1750 and 2 liter berlina register....and that Barry ran the "international" Giulia berlina register..

I haven't heard from Dave in quite some time. He seems to have dropped off the face of the earth! Do you know if he still has his TI Super AR*595385* ?? I heard a rumor that Dave sold his red super 337895 to Gary Patitz up in Washington a while ago....or maybe Gary is just "storing" it for him...

I have run the Berlina Register since its inception in 1997, but I also took up the Giulia Register for the US after Dave disappeared from view some years ago. I had one brief correspondence with him some time ago; he said it was fine for me to continue it. I didn't get any of his Register info, which I presume he still has. I got a list of US cars from Barry Edmunds, which was my starting point, and have added to it over the past several years, now totally more than 200 cars in North America. See it and the Berlina list at www.berlinaregister.com. I need to update both lists with additions, which I'm planning to do this weekend.

I don't know anything about Dave's current status or cars, and haven't had any contact with Gary.

Some more detailed info from John Hertzman

I managed to find the info below by doing a bit of an internet search. John Hertzman is one of the most knowledgeable Alfisti around, so his info is usually very correct.

Hopefully, this will stay archived here on the BB now. Credit goes to Dr. John Hertzman, the Alfa Digest and all others involved (including Andrew here on the BB).

From: JHertzman@aol.com
Subject: T.I., T.I. Super, and Super

In AD7-276 Don Suiter asks about an Alfa Romeo TI Super at an auction,
wondered if it is the same one which was in Denver for a couple years,
mentions that both were white, and asks for "anything related to this model of
Super".

The first thing to know is that these are all permutations of the boxy four-
door sedan which established Alfa as a prime contender in the ugly-is-chic
sweepstakes. 575,000 cars were built with this body, 71,000 of them Giulia
T.I.s, 504 of them Giulia T. I. Supers, and 124,000 of them Giulia Supers. The
remaining model terms were fairly simple; they split into 1300 and 1600
subsystems along with "T.I.", "Super" or "S" qualifiers.

As for both of the ones he had met being white, all T.I.Supers were,
originally- Biancospino, Hawthorn White, just slightly warmer than the
Porcelain white, china white, biancco P.F. used on Spiders generally.

The cars were basic homologation specials, weighing 910 kg as opposed to 1000
kg for the basic Giulia T.I. and 1020 kg for the Sprint GT Veloce. Similarly
with the engine; The Duetto Veloce and GT Veloce had 109 CV, the Giulia Sprint
Specials had 112 CV and the T.I had 115, the same as the "street" version of
the GTA which had an identical listed top speed, 185 km/h. Odd numbers, if
d'A-T is correct the only difference between the T.I. and "customer" GTA
engines is the number of spark plugs.

As with the GTA, the number required built for homologation purposes was far
greater than the number needed for factory-supported racing needs. The
popularity of the T.I. Super is said to have led directly to the development
of the Giulia Super which was introduced in the same show season as the GTA,
the 1965 Geneva show for the Super and the 1965 Amsterdam and Geneva shows for
the GTA.

Lastly, the serial numbers game. The car is described as a 1964 Alfa Romeo TI
Super, Chassis #AR59133 with Eng. #005100187. The chassis number given would
be preceded by three giving family (105) and two giving the subset (09 in this
case) for a total of 105.09.59133 , and I can't find anything like that in
Fusi or D'Amico- Tabucch. Also did not find any 1600 engine numbers which
cointained the string 510. Probably simple transcribing errors, slips of the
pen-

Subject: Tks, re: Giulia TI question

Hello,

My thanks to the John H for his well written reply about the 64 Giulia
TI which I had viewed over on ebay. Thanks to Andrew W. for his
off-digest input. For the curious the Alfa has come back online at ebay
with a new higher price. I wish the seller good luck, I just wish I had
a few of the GTA parts on my junior.

For the curious, you can view the ebay auction at this link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...&item=43976049

The standard disclaimers, I do not have any $$$ interest in this car,
just curious about it's history.

Best of T-day to all,
Don

Subject: TI Supers

Anyone know of an available Alfa book (or magazine article) that
covers Giulia TI Supers well? I have most of the usual suspects,
including Fusi, the Illustrated Buyers Guide, Pat Braden's Giulia
book, and the Brookland Giulia sedan article compilation. Lots on
TIs, lots on Supers, and the other street variations, but there's very
little on TI Supers. Was it ever tested or previewed in R&T or C/D?
Thanks

Subject: Tony Adriaensens book "Allegeritta"

Has a few pages on it, and some nice photos. If you don't already own this
book, you should.

I'll paraphrase the book a bit:
Introduced to the press on the Monza circuit on April 24, 1963 as the
competition version of the Giulia Ti. Big cloverleafs on the front wings,
the type indication on the back panel and the little grilles in place of the
headlamps placed in the middle. Campy aluminum wheels with 155x15 tyres
and a modified dashboard gave an extra sporty look. Thin size steel was
used for the body work and all sound -deadening mat'l was removed. The
front seats were lightweight bucket seats and the opening mechanism for the
Plexiglas windows in the back doors was removed. This resulted in a loss
of weight of about 100kg in comparison to the Ti. The engine was the same
as the one used in the Giulia SS. Fuel admission was thru a single
electrical fuel pump in combo with twin Weber 45DCOE14 carburettors. A fuel
tank with a capacity of 80-100 liters could be fitted on request. Brake
power came from Four Dunlop discs. The mid-placed headlamps were removed
and the holes were used as extra air ducts.

In the early stages of Autodelta's activities, and unidentified no. of TI
Super cars were prepared for racing. These versions boasted 160 bhp at
7500rpm. It has been impossible to find the exact modifications that were
carried out nor the total production no. of the Autodelta TI Super. The no.
of those special versions was probably very low as Autodelta was at the time
fully occupied with developing the TZ models and the GTA.

A remarkable fact is that the registering of ths car in the GT category for
the 1963 Tour de France edition, a race in which it took fourth place
overall behind three Ferrari's. There were only 501 TI supers produced.

Happy Thanksgiving USA!

Subject: T.I. Supers and "thinner steel" bodywork

In AD7-284 Andrew Watry asks:

>>Anyone know of an available Alfa book (or magazine article) that

including Fusi, the Illustrated Buyers Guide, Pat Braden's Giulia

little on TI Supers. Was it ever tested or previewed in R&T or C/D?<<

Not in R & T for sure, and C & D is probably equally sure; my clippings files
(from cutting-up C & D's predecessors and other such) have every snippet on
the "BMW"-disguised Giulia prototype, Colli Promiscua and the original open
Tubolare Zagato, and I'm fairly sure I wouldn't have missed the T.I. Super in
an American newsstand publication. The Brooklands Giulia Berlina compilation
probably has everything that had been published IN ENGLISH, but that is the
rub. There was bound to have been a thorough coverage in Quattroruote, and
there is bound to have been some great material in retrospective articles in
either (or both) Ruoteclassiche or La Manovella e Ruote a Raggi. Inquiries to
the publishers (Editoriale Domus for the first two, I think Nada for the last)
might produce a reference. Or a large-hearted Italian enthusiast on the list
might help? Please?

In AD7-287 Steve Schaeffer furnished some interesting material from Tony
Adriaensens book "Allegeritta", which I don't have, and he is right, one
should. One point mentioned was that thinner steel was used for the bodywork,
a ploy which I am familiar with from the various touring-car championships of
the nineties and also from some USA factory-supported drag racing in which
"chemical milling" was used for controlled selective thinning of panels, a
more exotic concept than just punching-out a thinner sheet.

D'Amico-Tabucchi's remarks about the Giulia T.I. and the G.T.A. do not support
the "thinner steel" concept, but they are not infallible. One other authority
is Alfa's own Spare Parts Catalog. The edition I got in 1967 when I bought my
Super consists of a basic Giulia T.I. Parts Catalog, a Supplement covering
parts used on the Giulia T.I.Super which differed from those in the T.I., and
a further Supplement covering parts used on the Giulia Super which differed
from those in the T.I. It is not always possible to tell "how" different-
often one hole punched in a deck-lid for a different piece of trim, or in an
engine-bay sidewall to mount a different junction block, generates a different
part number. It is, however, possible to tell when there is absolutely no
difference whatsoever. There are many fascinating details. Page one in the
body section, for instance, has the complete T.I. Super body shell, painted
and trimmed, with two parts numbers, one for the 'touring model' and the other
for the 'racing model', but it also has a single number for the 'body,
unpainted'. Moving on into the body structural parts there is a steering
column support for disk-braked cars, suggesting that some T.I. Supers were
still drum-braked. There is also one other flooring part for disk-braked
T.I.Supers.

There are different parts numbers for the hood, the trunk lid, the rear doors,
and for thirteen or so structural panels- floors, inner side-rail fillers and
the like- but there are none for the roof, front doors, front fenders, rear
quarter panels, or front or rear fixed panels, indicating that these parts did
not differ from the corresponding parts on the base T.I. This, to me, casts
doubt on the "thinner steel" concept. It would also seem to me that if going
to that length to save the weight it would have been easy enough to leave the
basic stressed hull standard and punch-out all the unstressed hinged panels -
four doors, deck, and hood- in aluminum, as Rover (and undoubtedly others) had
done a decade earlier, and as I believe Alfa did on the steel-bodied Junior
Zagato.

The rest of the parts book comparisons offer a multitude of fascinating
inferences, for those so inclined.
