Bit of an odd one...

I am looking for photos of an early (series one) boot/trunk interior. I am faced with the decision to either have it carpeted, or to keep it as per the original. Sadly, I don't know what original specification would have been.

I know there was a rubber mat to cover the floor, but not sure about the rear bulk head, inner wings and wheel arches.

Does anyone have any info or even better photos?

Thanks,

Tom

Interesting. Almost identical to mine. I wasn't sure if the textured sounds deadening/stone chip paint texture was correct. Then again, it could be mine! Where was this taken?

It was for sale on the Anamera portal several years ago, a Series I Berlina with a wood rim steering wheel and split front seats from a Series III car

Tom,

As promised by Greig here are a couple of pictures of the boot interior of my 1958 first series (tipo 753) Giulietta TI. The finish is quite similar to the bitumen finish in boot of the 1961 Sprint Veloce I used to own.

All the best

Peter,

Many thanks. I wondered if the bitumen finish was correct. It somehow didn't seem quite right, but glad to see mine is not the only one sporting the stuff.

At any rate, I have opted to have some carpets made to keep things a little more, luxurious! I'll supply some photos when completed.

Regards,

Tom

I had a US market 56 Berlina, I guess Series 1, and it had the same appearance, though I'm sorry to say I didn't keep any trunk pics.

berlina trunk

My '56 berlina, produced a couple of months after Andrew's car was never re-sprayed and looked (until recently, it's in the paint shop now) the same as Peter's. Black texture with a mat. Our US cars would have had little or no difference in '56 from the Euro cars because the Federal Government had not yet required any changes. Once they did (late '56) we no longer got the sedan, until the Giulia Super 10 years later. If I can find a photo I'll post it.

Gents,

This is all wonderful news. I am increasingly sure that the trunk on mine is, therefore, original. I am going to the shed today so will take some photos and post them up here of how it is now for reference.

Thank you all for your help. As always, hugely appreciated!

Tom
