|Odometer reading||76,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
The 105 series Berlina was introduced by Alfa Romeo in 1967 and
remained in production until 1976. It was an updated and slightly
enlarged version of the Giulia sedan which had been introduced in
1962. In turn, the Giulia was a fairly significant revision of the
Giulietta sedan which had gone into production in 1956. It is a
four-door sedan, seats five, has a 1779cc or 1962cc four-cylinder
twin-cam aluminum engine in front, a five-speed manual transmission
or three-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes,
independent front suspension, live axle rear suspension, and a unit
steel body. The body was restyled by Marcello Gandini at
Presented in an attractive pale blue colour more frequently seen on Giulietta Sprints, this well maintained, non-US 1750 model has been used in Italy for the last ten years and only during the summer months. It is largely original and offers spirited driving with the classic free-revving Alfa aluminium block and head. Berlina's are fun fast cars with plenty of character, a great compromise for the Alfa lover as they combine the driving pleasure of the GTV and Spider with the utility and anonymity of a four-door sedan. They have excellent mechanical components (identical to the contemporary GTV and Spider), a pleasing body style full of character with interesting details and trim.
