Some of the transition cars had the long tail lights at the end of the run in maybe 1963? before the switch over to the 1600 Giulias. All of those cars were for sure 101 chassis. Your car is probably a 101 series. If you have a parts manual, on page 9 it states the last 750 D was VIN 1495.07213 and 101's started at .08001. Why do you ask?

If you check your engine # and its within the range of 00102.14385 - 00102.23835, than you´ll know it is the original 1300 engine. Otherwise if it comes to undisturbed 750 - 101 engines, you can see the difference in seconds by looking at the water pump fan, is it aluminum you have 1300 engine, plastic 1600 engine.
"Also what is mean 10103??"
10103 is just a model designation meaning Giulietta Spider 101, 1300cc.
"What is the difrance bitween all those 101,750..10103??"
750 is an earlier model with the same 1300cc, although not exactly the same engine design, but close.

Hope this helps.

Hi Domo75

1495*10515 is a 1960 Spider, about the middle of the year build date, my 1495*10990 is a 15 July 1960 production, so yours should be a late May / early June 1960.

There are (broadly speaking) 3 different versions of the Giulietta Spider as we know it, for the purposes of clarity I have listed them below - Note that the Factory never referred to them as such and this is NOT an official description, rather a quick and easy means of identification.

1st Series - SWB 750D / 750F, has a 2200mm wheel base, small tail lights (USA Spec = Lucas oval 'football' version while European Spec = small Altissimo tapered version

2nd Series - LWB - 2250mm wheel base - still using 750 designated 1495 chassis numbers on early ones, later ones (like my 10990 are 10103). Small Tipo plate on the firewall of the later ones of these. All of these have quarter light windows and small Altissimo tail lights. These cars are most commonly known as Interim or Transition cars

3rd Series - LWB - now pure 101, no stamped designation on firewall, only the chassis number stamped, Tipo is now on a small plate on the firewall (10103 / 10107 or 10123 and 10118). Larger / full tail lights with the big chrome base. 1962 cars were 1300 & 1600, from '63 only 1600 versions which had the raised portion in the centre of the bonnet.

SWB cars can be identified by their short doors - there was a thread on this a few days / weeks ago.

Post a few more pictures of your car as well as the engine & engine number, we'll tell you what you have

Where are you in the world ??

Ciao
