The Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior was the entry model to the Alfa Romeo coupe range and came out in 1965. Alfa’s GT 1300 Junior was fitted with the 1290cc twin cam engine. The smaller engine was introduced in order to allow buyers to choose an Alfa Romeo coupe, while avoiding the higher taxes on the models with larger engine capacity, especially in the Italian market. From 1967 a servo was fitted as standard, together with higher rear wheel arches as adopted later on the 1750 GTV. In 1968 the GT 1300 Junior was revised with many of the new parts from the 1750 GTV. New this included the dashboard, the suspension and the new wheel size of 5½ × 14J instead of 4½ × 15J. This revised GT 1300 Junior retained the early "step-front" body style, which interestingly makes it the most mechanically refined production "step-front" model.
Originally supplied to Italy new, this beautiful GT Junior was manufactured on 6th November 1969 and sold on 8th November 1969. This stunning example has been extensively restored some years back in Italy and presents in very good condition today. The GT Junior comes with information provided by the Alfa Romeo Historic Archive in Milan, which shows new the car was finished in Dutch Blue with Grey cloth interior. This junior has been restored to its original colour scheme, with the interior presenting in excellent condition. The previous owner in Italy claims he had the car from new and that the mileage of 88,655km is correct. We cannot warrant either, however the car does have the original "Carta Di Circolazione Per Autovettura" which verifies the mileage up to December 1982. This example is believed to be a matching numbers example, however on the build sheets Alfa Romeo never logged the engine numbers down for these models, so it's difficult to be certain. The car is UK Registered, MOT’d and Serviced. Also Included are various original Alfa Romeo GT Junior books, this stunning example is ready to be enjoyed for the summer.
