nice berlina!

My berlina is not street legal yet (appointment with RDW, the duth DMV, is soon).
A teaser , still locked up, dusty and all, with NOS abarth exhaust and new Autoparco wheels with hubcaps!



i dont know a whole lot about berlina's but what years did these cars come with convex tail lamps? would this be consider a series 3?

Duemila,
that car of yours sits really nice and flat - way better with the lowered springs.

What/Where are they from? I've got the Classic Alfa set to fit to mine soon.

Davbert - No thats not an S3 !

1750 Berlina's used both Carello rear lights (the slight smoother looking ones) and Altissimo (the slightly sharper,squarer looking set as show in the pic).

Not sure of how Alfa worked out which car got what type!

Cheers,

Paul.

Thanks :smile2:

It is a set of Eibach springs (probably the same set CA is selling, but not sure). And in combination with the new Bilstein dampers in front and new Spax in the rear the ride is great and not too harsh.

So glad I listened to your advice here regarding what to do with our 1973 Giulia Super 1.3. I decided to hold off on body and panel work, but concentrated on bringing the mechanicals and electrical up to their former glory. Work completed includes:

- stripped and power cleaned engine bay and underside
- repaint engine bay and add new decals
- rebuilt Solex 40 ADDEs by professional in Italy
- updated intake manifold, new thermostat and new Siamese carb mounts
- cleaned and powder coated all throttle linkages, new ball joints
- added GTA style trumpets
- new alternator, ignition wires and coil
- cleaned distributor and timed ignition
- replaced U-joints and balanced driveshaft
- cleaned, rodded and painted radiator
- all hoses and clamps replaced
- fresh lubricants in engine, trans and diff
- brake calipers rebuilt, new master cylinder, pads, flex hoses and brake fluid
- new battery cables and hold-down bracket
- added windshield wiper arms and blades
- cleaned up grill, all lens, new bulbs - all lights working
- replaced 3 of 5 steel wheels due to corrosion around valve stem, blast and powder coat
- new Pirelli Cinturato tires, polished spinners and new badges
- dyed and polished dash, thoroughly cleaned interior
- add lower seat covers

The folks at Classic Alfa must love me...

The car passed inspection with ease and is so fantastic to drive. Great sound out of the GTA trumpets, strong and smooth power band (the guy in Italy set the carbs up perfectly). Much stronger engine power than I expected out of 1.3 liters. Wherever we stop we get a lot of folks coming over to talk to us about the car.

I will drive and enjoy this ol’Giulia for a while, then at some point in the future replace floor pans due to rust. I have to admit, I am growing to like the rat rod patina look at this point - not all that bad and it goes like a bat out of ****.

Best

Tom

2x faggio 1750

really happy with how my 1750 Berlina is right now!



It all started with my ex faggio 69 1750 Berlina that I owned 9 years ago and drove to Sicily for a vacation. It felt like it was all ment to be when I found this Faggio 71 1750 Berlina, still on Palermo plates.

Recently I took the 1750 to a nearby shop to put in tinted 2000 glass, just like I did before with my ex Faggio 1750 Berlina
Big suprise: my ex first series 1750 was also there to get some cosmetic work done. It was used as a daily driver so it looked a bit tired.
But how cool is that!

Thanks!

The abarth exhaust is open flow, but with all three mufflers it is not a screemer. It is a typical deeper sound and the volume lies between stock steel and stock with soundpipe.
I allready removed the Abarth end muffler and added a soundpipe to give it more grunt.
Nice to know: it is a 2 piece exhaust. The first and centre muffler are in 1 piece.

Not sure if I will keep it though...I have always used CSC stuff and I miss its grunt.:grin2: but the abarth is more neighbour friendly.
But its only 100km old now so maybe it needs time.
