“It’s a Giulietta, but has FIA pa­pers as a Giu­lia 1600,” ex­plains owner and painter Noel Hutchin­son. “It has the 1600 engine be­cause it’s more com­pet­i­tive than the 1300, and it has a Giu­lia dash.” This is his stand-in rally car, bought a year ago. “I was go­ing on a Euro­pean tour, was des­per­ate for a Giulietta and didn’t want to spend much – I looked all over Europe.” He found this car in Kent but soon re­alised that it needed lots of TLC. Just two of the is­sues were a gear­box that “jan­gled” and wiring “like a bird’s nest”. The car’s next out­ing will be a forth­com­ing Dutch tour.
