I wonder if it's this: /vehicle_12881-Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-SS-10121-1963.html as both series were made by ITC.

May well be. KMG xxxB would appear to be 1964, but Glass's does not state a date - only the phrase "For re-registrations by greater London (N.W.)"

Oh yes... KMG 27B was correct.

Sandie is correct. This Alfa Romeo Giulia SS was owned by prolific ITC television producer Monty Berman. Therefore, the production did not have to pay anything at all to use it, as The Baron (/vehicle_75209-Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-SS-10121-1963.html), The Champions (/vehicle_12881-Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-SS-10121-1963.html), Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) (in which it does not appear, despite having been filmed concurrently with Department S) and this series itself were all produced by Monty Berman at Elstree Studios. As The Saint was also co-produced by Monty Berman before 1965 (afterwards, it was produced solo by his friend and former business partner Robert S. Baker), I imagine that it is no surprise that it also turned up in that series as well (/vehicle_49364-Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-SS-10121-1963.html). According to the DVD commentary on The Baron, Johnny Goodman, who was an associate producer on the series, was approached by Berman, saying that he wanted to increase the salary of a film crew member so that he would be able to buy the Alfa from him, as he had had enough of it! Either way, it looks as if it was around for a while at the studios.
