Just spotted a couple of Alfa Gulia's of 70's vintage (four door saloon). Can I ask the knowledgeable did these ever become available in right hand drive?
They would certainly suit my current brief but Mrs CJB would not entertain LHD.

Absolutely, and such a blast.

Survival rate is poor as you would imagine. It’s not uncommon for RHD cars to be imported from South Africa, Malaysia etc which widens the choice a bit. On the upside spares availability is superb and a properly sorted one is a lovely car to drive.

Thanks for the replies so far, I believe you are right because I have not spotted many for sale unless I am looking in the wrong places.

There are a lot more 105 coupes left than the saloon.
Even more rare are the 1750 and 2000 Berlina, which were the successor to the Giulia super. Although in typical Alfa fashion, they were still available at the same time.
Great cars.

RHD 1750 Berlina for sale - Plainer but cleaner styling, longer wheelbase and larger engine, although plenty of Giulias end up with 1750/2000 power plants too.

Yes quite attractive and desireable, but would not be my colour choice, thank you for bringing this to my attention.

This channel featuring his lovely Guilia is worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.

FDU 503C.

I owned that for quite a long time. It was the first car I ever owned that wasn't a Ford shed. It taught me how to drive. Ugly as sin in my eyes, but a brilliant car. And yes. It was factory fitted right hand drive.

This thread just reminded me to go get mine from the rented lock up and get her ready for summer.

If you fancy stretching its legs, we're organising an evening run out in mid June with 8 or so Giulia's from Surrey down to Sussex for a Pizza

Thanks! The car is with Jamie Porter for a proper tune up and sorting of wiring bodges dating back many years. Let’s see how we go.
