They say every petrol head should own at least one Alfa in their lifetime. The passion and soul that’s instilled into an Alfa is what the petrol head (over your average driving public) will feel and admire.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia GT1300 Junior is one of those vehicles that when launched further solidified Alfa's name in the history books as a brand that has style and passion.
The GT1300 Junior doesn’t have a massive engine, merely a 1300cc as the name denotes. But it is a twin cam revvy engine producing 89bhp which isn’t at all bad in a lightweight coupe shell. Further more, despite its small capacity in CCs it was capable of a 0-60 time of 12 seconds and over 100Mph top speed, which at the time was more than pleasing. Somewhat more impressive though are the looks; it really is a pretty vehicle and any petrol head worth their salt can appreciate its inevitable style and therefore even today it is still sought after, maybe even more so.
The Alfa before you actually originated in France hence it being LHD. The current owners imported it to the UK in 2005 and they have remained in possession of it since. It has been extensively modified to a fast road spec, with all of the necessary safety and performance enhancements one could want.
It has undergone restoration at the same time and was resprayed 4 years ago. It was part of a small collection of beloved classics, and with the owner now unfortunately passed on it is time for the car to go to someone who will love it just as much as he did.
There is a decent file of paperwork with the vehicle, although the majority of its documentation pre 2005 is of course in French. Since its arrival on UK Soil , the majority of the modifications/upgrades have been carried out by local independent garages or the car's owner himself.
The car is of course MOT exempt.
The interior is very sparse, instead focusing on reducing the weight of the vehicle and providing safety to its occupants. It is fitted with two high-end Corbeau racing bucket seats and Willians 4 point racing harnesses that are mounted to the Safety Devices Roll Cage. There are no rear seats, further reducing the overall kerb weight.
The car is fitted with a Momo racing steering wheel of a classic style which looks perfectly at home, and there are a number of additional custom switches that have been added by the current owner who owned a firm that made wiring looms. There is an additional custom centre console with cut off switch and 12v socket integrated, and additional gauges for fuel and engine temperature fitted on top of the standard dash. The car is also fitted with OMP racing pedals and fire extinguisher.
In the boot, you will find the racing spec fuel tank and filler neck - the car cannot be filled up externally and you must access via the boot space.
The exterior is very clean indeed with the paint still having a great shine and only a few tiny stonechips. The car sports the original steel wheels in great condition and the tyres all have good tread. The car is fitted with extra Cibie Spot lamps and they really add to the classic racer look of the vehicle whilst of course also being functional. The chrome work is in great condition with minor pitting in a few places and there is a small dent by the passenger door handle. The overall look and condition of the car really does turn heads, we were inundated with passers by asking questions when taking the photos. It really is a pretty vehicle.
The car looks to be in fine shape, with everything on the car having been painstakingly restored and upgraded where possible. The engine bay is largely original and that revvy 1300 engine goes well and sounds fantastic through the stainless exhaust.
Everything works as it should and there are no bad noises, it is believed the engine may have been rebuilt at some stage, but there is no visible paperwork to back this up.
In theory the appeal section of this car writes itself - I mean look at it. It has to be one of the prettiest models of a classic Alfa that’s still in the “affordable” bracket.
The late owner's vision of a performance classic is clear to see, and has been executed well with high end performance-based additions to an already very desirable vehicle.
If you would like to dip your toe into the sea of classic performance motoring with a well built, well specced and well-loved vehicle, this is sure to tick most if not all of those boxes.

Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
