Most Alfa Romeo fans are more than familiar with the original Giulia, which at the time served as a successor to the Giulietta, however many are likely not familiar with the Giulia Super Familiare, an example of which is to be auctioned by RM this week.
The Giulia Giulia Super 1600 Familiare was a wagon/estate version of the Giulia that was produced by a number of coachbuilding companies in Italy. It was primarily used by police forces, medics and in other service positions and as such, were rarely handled with the care that other vintage Alfas still around today often are.
The example to be auctioned off by RM, coachbuilt by Carrozzeria Giorgetti, was nearly crushed, but was saved from a wrecking yard by a sharp-eyed enthusiast and subsequently restored. It was once employed by the Italian Ministry of the Interior before being sold off to a dealership where it was used as an advertising vehicle.
RM says the car underwent a full service in May 2016 and is thus “in condition to be immediately enjoyed to the fullest and with the whole family.” If you’re a part of that family, we’d like to apply to be adopted.
