Description

This lot is no longer available

Introduced in 1966 principally for the home market, where smaller capacity cars were rewarded with tax breaks, the GT 1300 Junior utilised an 89bhp version of the earlier Giulietta twin-cam engine and proved enormously popular - some 90,000 were built all up. In 1972, Alfa Romeo reintroduced the 1570cc twin-cam four into the 105-series line-up with the GT 1600 Junior, both models displaying a remarkable willingness to rev and the same sweet chassis and handling abilities as their bigger brothers. The 1600 Junior also saw the same styling revisions, including refinements made to the nose (still with twin headlamps), improvements to the interior and the twin-binnacle dashboard as previously introduced on the 1750 Sprint. In total just 14,299 GT 1600 Juniors were built, making this one of the rarest 105-series variants produced.
