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 saloon which had been introduced in 1962. In turn, the Giulia was a fairly significant revision of the Giulietta saloon which had gone into production in 1956. It is a four door saloon, seats five, has a 1779cc or 1962cc four cylinder twin-cam aluminium 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.
A rare and desirable early 1750 model, finished in the original factory specification Grigio metallic with all original contrasting tan interior, black dash, carpets and wood trim. This highly original example has covered a total of 35,000 miles (55,000kms) and was originally owned by an Italian. We are informed by our vendor that the car is free of any accident damage or replacement panels, the underside is exceptional with factory sealant still present and no untidy welded areas. The owner states mechanically the car excels with recent new suspension and brake service. All components and fittings within the car are present and operational and is fitted with Air conditioning, even the glass is the factory correct complete with Alfa information stickers and etched markings. The engine bay is period correct with correct inner wings, bulkhead and carburettors. The car also underwent a repaint in its original colour and presents very well indeed. Offered with its original books, Alfa Romeo owner's pack and fully registered here in the UK and with a recent oil and filter service this is a desirable 1750 Alfa Romeo and thus viewings are highly recommended.
