- Desirable GTA 1300 Junior, one of 193 built
- Fascinating ownership history with two private owners from
In June 1968, Alfa Romeo introduced the 1300 GTA Junior. Despite
retaining the same overall capacity of 1,290 cc, the Tipo 559
engine exhibited key differences to the GT Junior's Tipo 530. The
bore and stroke were 78 � 67.5 mm, instead of 74 � 75 mm on the GT
Junior. The carburettors were larger Weber 45 DCOE18s instead of 40
DCOE28s, and the cylinder head was fitted with twin plugs. As a
result, the Tipo 559 was able to deliver 96 cv at 6,000 rpm. In
addition to the engine, steel-pressed wheels and a set of dedicated
stickers differentiate the Junior from its larger sibling.
Chassis no. AR 776142 was completed on 23 November 1973 and
finished in Biancospino. Subsequently delivered on 29 November to
AutoBecker in Germany, it remained unsold until 1979, when it was
sold to another German dealer.
Its first private owner acquired the car and imported it to Japan
in 1983 and registered it two years later under registration '68
33'. He kept the car for 39 years before it was purchased by the
consignor and restored in 2018 to factory Stradale specification.
Its current mileage of 52,000 km is believed to be original. One of
the most desirable Alfa Romeos ever built, it is ready to
participate in some of the finest events in Europe.
Please note that contrary to the printed catalogue, this car is not
currently registered, but is offered with its previous UK V5C.
Veuillez noter que, contrairement aux indications du catalogue
imprim�, cette voiture n'est pas immatricul�e, mais qu'elle est
accompagn�e de son document V5C anglais pr�c�dent.
