1970 RACE READY ALFA ROMEO GTA 1300 JUNIOR For Sale
|Based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupé, the GTA was first developed for production GT racing in 1965 by Autodelta, the Alfa Romeo factory motorsport department, which continued to offer it in both "Corsa" (race) and "Stradale" (street) versions until 1975. The "A" in the badge means "alleggerita" (lightened) and reflects the measures taken to trim the Giulia for competition, which, for Corsa models, included body panels of aluminum alloy, plexiglas side and rear windows, and numerous elements crafted from lightweight steel, magnesium and other weight-saving materials (the Stradale model, however, lacked a number of these pound-shedding strategies). The car was an immediate success, winning both the drivers' and constructors' title in its first season, only to go on to take the European GT Championship a resounding seven years in a row.|
The GTA made its racing debut on March 20th, 1966 at Monza, Andrea de Adamich and Teodoro Zeccoli triumphing in the Jolly Club Four-Hour Race. From then on, the Autodelta-prepared GTAs enjoyed outstanding success, winning the European Touring Car Championship three years running from 1966-68.
In 1968, in response to the popularity of the under-1300cc racing class, Autodelta began production of the GTA 1300 Junior. The Championships of the 1300cc class had long been dominated by the Mini Cooper, but that would all change in 1968 with the arrival of the Alfa, the latter for the next few years enjoying a similar winning streak to that of the Mini in the early '60s. Unique to the model, the GTA 1300 Juniors were powered by a short-stroke 1290cc version of the Giulia's 1570cc inline four with the 78mm bore and a 67.5mm stroke crankshaft. Equipped with the GTA's twin-plug head and revving to more than 9,000rpm, this little gem of an engine produced 150bhp plus. A little over 400 GTA 1300 Juniors (all in either red and white or white and green livery) had been constructed when production ceased in 1975, but marque experts believe that no more than half this number exist today, surely putting this car by definition among the rarest of the all post-war Alfa Romeo models.
This beautifully presented GTA Junior chassis *775897* started its life in 1970, when it was delivered new to Neunkirchen (D) for ONS inspection. The GTA was almost immediately entered into several races across Germany. With pilots such has Speyer, Wolfgangg Kirch, Didweiler, for the 1970 season going to AvD Preis von Hockenheim, Int. ADAC 300km Nürburgring, Hockenheim, etc… That racing car came back again on track in 1972 to race in many events including ADAC 6 Hours of Nürburgring for Alfa Romeo Deutschland Racing Team with Marx, Arend and Kirch finishing 35th overall, and 10th in class. The race entered from 1970 to 1976 are too long to list them all here, but you will find no more than 4 pages races listed in the excellent book Allegritta by Übelher & Dasse.
Presented here in a striking red and yellow livery, this rare Bertone-designed GTA looks just right. In recent years, the car has been subject to a full restoration and engine refurbishment, the interior also refurbished and fitted with dark competition seats and a black roll cage by well known Formula GT Alfa Specialist in Germany. As you would expect, this GTA is set up for race. A close-ratio transmission ensures that the driver can shift smoothly and quick in order to keep the high-revving GTA engine on its cams. Surely a worthy competitor for historic racing, rally or club tours, this Alfa is accompanied with an extra set of wheels and tires, and a fully rebuilt, zero km 1300 GTA in Autodelta specs. A great GTA indeed! Ready for the next HTC by Peter Auto races or Alfa Revival Cup, it can also be raced at the Tour Auto or Modena Cento Ore.
