This Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior was built in August 1967 and delivered to Germany where it spent the next 33 months. While there the Alfa was spotted by Mr Rajput - a professional bodybuilder and owner of a sign writing company in Kenya - who was in Germany for a bodybuilding competition. He fell in love with the Alfa and had it shipped home to Kenya. Importing a car was expensive, so a bright red left-hand drive Italian GT car was a rare sight in Kenya (hence the 'LHD' sticker on the tail). Mr Rajput was treated as a celebrity as he drove his pride and joy along the dusty streets of Nairobi. The Alfa has been restored twice in its life; it was also lifted to protect the underside and re-trimmed in fabric as the leather upholstery got excessively hot.
Sadly, Mr Rajput passed away in 2013 and his nephew, who had since moved to the UK, inherited the Alfa. The car was shipped to the UK and has been garaged for the last four years; due to the vendor's growing family it now has to go. Although in running condition, this rare car is deserving of a full restoration to former glory. Offered with a Certificato d'Origine from Alfa's Romeo's Heritage Department, it is currently believed to be one of oldest in the country.
