1972 Alfa Romeo 1300 GT Junior

Straight and smart LHD GT Junior from a private collection in S. Ireland; originally an Italian car; in super order both above and below

Supplied new in Italy in January 1972, this 105 Series Bertone Coupe comes to us from a private Southern Irish collection, the owner ensuring all his cars are as good as can be. 

The car was purchased from a dealer in Dublin by our vendor who completed the import and registration process in Ireland in July 2015 after the GT Junior had come in from Italy where it was last registered 44794 MT and where it recieved an MOT in April 2014 at which time it was showing 24,481Km.

The history file for this gorgeous little GT Junior 1300 includes the Irish log book, import document, UK MOT, Irish equivilent SORN docs, copy car club (1 Club Nazionale Fiat 600) photo and info from Italy dated February 2010 showing the car and details of its Italian owner, Roberto Ferrazzolo of Roma, Irish NCT (MOT) dated July 2015, Italian ownershsip booklet/registrtion document and declaration of conformity detailing (with translations) the ownership histoy of the car until export to the UK in January 2014 from Modena (the car's license plate changed as it moved around Italy with various owners which is the norm).

Invoices on file show replacement of the rear prop shaft section at 25,611Km in October 2014 by a Dublin Alfa specialist costing 442Euros, 708Euros spent on replacement inner wishbone bushes, ARB bushes and replacement UJ in August 2014 also in Dublin, and then prior to that, £567 spent by Classic car specialists Arun Cars of Hants on a pre-MOT check, service, washer pump, ignition parts and two new UK-compliant headlamps.

More recently, our vendor has had his small specialist team go through the car and repair or replace anything that needed attention including fitment of new sound deadening material, new carpets, new door glass seals, door hinge repair, new door seals, boot seals, new parcel shelf, new accelerator pedal, brake pedal rubber, new ignition parts, new plugs, flasher unit, and a full re-spray in its original dark blue.

Presenting superbly, and starting promptly via a discreet starter button under the steering column, this dainty little car sounds as it should with a cheeky rasp and felt tight and nimble as we moved it around for these shots and accompanying video.  The black vinyl interior looks crisp and fresh, the paintwork excellent bar a mark to the boot lid which looks to have happened during transit, much to the vendor's dismay. The steering wheel fitted was a personal choice of the owner, and looks very pretty - although the original is enroute to us should that be more your cup of tea.

**BUYERS PLEASE NOTE The car is of course from the EU, and as such the rules have recently changed.  We have undertaken to make a NOVA declaration on successful sale for the new owner, but any fees and Duty due will be the laibility of the buyer but given the car is a Classic car, of some 49 years in age we understand the Duty is of a minimal amount **
