Giardinetta in Print

 
     

The Giardinetta was introduced in an era where it was not fashionable to drive in an estate vehicle. Being ahead of its time the amount of promotion material from Alfa Romeo and the coverage by car magazines was relatively limited. In this section of this website the written/printed items will be shown/listed. Where applicable the print numbers may lead you to a scan of the mentioned item. If a scan is available this will be indicated by a link. A link is clearly recognisable by its blue coloured font. Where same items are available in severable languages they are listed in alphabetical order. This listing doesn't pretend to be complete. If you have additional printed items about the Giardinetta or corrections about the literature mentioned here feel free to leave information in the Contact section. With an update of this section additional and/or corrected information might be added.

Alfasud Giardinetta supplement to the instruction manual;

For the Giardinetta the instruction manual of the Alfasud L was used. In addition, to explain the Giardinetta specific items, a supplement to the instruction manual was added. The different languages of the supplements are clearly recognisable by the different colours of the cover of the manual. The difference between the tipo 904A & 904B manual is subtle on the cover page. The vehicle drawing on the front page of the 904B has a slightly thicker bumper just like the actual vehicles. Of course the pictures on the inside are also updated to reflect the 904B vehicle status. A remarkable item is that the section about the tow bar is significantly different between the 904A & 904B supplement even though the tow bar itself didn't change.
