A Century of Cars: 42. Solido 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (series 750 and
101) was a subcompact automobile manufactured by the Italian car
maker Alfa Romeo from 1954 to 1965. The Giulietta was introduced at
the Turin Motor Show in 1954 and almost 132000 were built in the
Portello factory in Milan.
The first Giulietta model was a coupé, the Giulietta Sprint, introduced in late 1954. This was followed by a sedan in spring 1955 and in mid 1955, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider, featuring convertible bodywork by Pininfarina. In 1957 the most powerful version, called Giulietta TI (Turismo Internazionale) was presented with minor cosmetic changes to the hood, the dial lights and rear lamps.
