Alfa Romeo 1600 GT Junior

This Alfa Romeo 1600 GT Junior is a gorgeous example of a three-box styled sports saloon. Designed by Giugiaro, the Alfa Romeo 1600 GT Junior was built between 1972 and 1977, and instantly became a hit. The cars mechanics, and its given performance, alongside it looks, made it an incredibly versatile car.

This example comes in a fine Hollandaise blue over Cinnamon leatherette. The body of the car was badly cracked and was in desperate need of a full respray, which was undertaken very recently and was completed late 2021. The Hollandaise blue now looks exceptionally sharp. Alongside this, the wheels are nicely polished, with the Dunlop SP 185/70 R14 tyres also in good shape. 

Looking towards the interior, this 105 Alfa really is stunning. The perfect geometric proportions of its dash, coupled with its excellent upkeep, superbly adds to the charming aura of this car. Some of the instruments, such as the 3-spoke, deep-dish steering wheel, cowled dials, and low-back bucket seats, all look great sitting within the car's beautiful interior. Accompanying this, the quilted vinyl floor coverings are in good condition, the headlining is taut, and the toggle switches are neatly labelled.

The maintenance of the car is not only demonstrated by the appearance of the car, but also in the vast number of invoices that date back to the early 1980s. It includes a lot of major work undertaken on the car, such as new carburettor mounts, a new inlet manifold gasket, and new brake servos, amongst other things, completed in 2016. It also includes the very recent full respray undertaken on the car as mentioned above.

Overall, this Alfa 1600 GT Junior is a delightful gem. It isn't flaunty, nor is it trying to be anything else. It's a neat, refined sports saloon that does all the basics and more incredibly well, and drives like a true Italian classic. Perhaps even under-appreciated, this charming Alfa Junior is a must buy.
