Here a some picures of my '69 Giulia Super. When bought in '02, the car was a faded burgandy colour with a lot of rust, but complete and straight. It needed new cills, (inner/outer, 4 new doors off a '67 Super, repairs to the floors, A B and C piller base, bottom of rear guards, rear valance panel, spare wheel well etc. The only accident damage found was on the LHS front guard, which had a new half section let in and this then had been hit around the headlight area.
I have had the gearbox rebuilt, seats from a '67 Super were rebuilt and covered in Connolly leather, the dash has been rebuilt, including powder coating the instrument pod and using '67 instruments, new headlining, badges re-chromed, new lights, all new rubbers, am having the door cards and grab handles from a '67 Super re-covered. Still need to get the carpets done. As you may have gathered a bit of '67 theme happenng here. I have a variety of choices for steering wheel including a '67 Nardi wheel, a woodrim Nardi, and a leather bound Momo Prototipo. Will decide later on.
The body preparation and paintwork was both poorly done and never completed by the guy I was using. Paid too much...ouch. Anyway it will need to be re-done and I am thinking of changing the colour again but this time to Navy Blue, possibly with a white roof like the Cabinieri colour they used on their Supers. Will see. I also need to get a new engine as mine was destroyed by a mate I lent it to for use in Targa Tasmania and then the Philip Island historics. He owes me, so I might try and get a 1750 rather than a 1600 for it. I also need to rebuild the suspension and sort out electrics but that is a little down the track. Not sure about wheel and tyre choice yet. Have some ideas but it depends on what I can find/afford.
