This Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior offered by Classic Park was produced in the year 1975 and delivered new in Italy. On the 9th of January 1999 the car was introduced in the Netherlands and has had only one owner since then. The GT 1300 is largely still in its original condition. Many maintenance invoices of the last owners are present at the car. According to current legislation, this car is exempt from motor vehicle tax in the Netherlands.
The GT 1300 Junior was a model from the 105/115 series (1963-1977) built by Alfa Romeo and was one of the successors of the popular Giulietta Sprint coupe. The body was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of the renowned firm Bertone. The result was a very innovative design for its time, and many of its innovative novelties were copied by the competition. All models in the series were Gran Turismo (GT) coupes. The 105/115 series can be roughly divided into two categories: the very sporty GT and GTV (V for Veloce) models and the GT Junior range. Cars in the latter category had engines with less cc capacity (1290 and 1570 cc compared to 1779 and 1962 cc). The Junior models (GT 1300 and GT 1600) were therefore very popular in Italy; the road tax for these cars was much more favourable!
The GT 1300 Junior was introduced in 1965 as the successor of the last car of the Giulietta Sprint series, the Giulia Sprint 1300 and had the same, slightly modified engine from its predecessor. Compared to its big brothers (122 hp and more) from the 105/115 series, this engine produced a modest 89 hp. However, its performances were pretty decent: a top speed of 100 mph (160 km / h) and acceleration from 0-60 mph (0-100 km / h) in 12.6 seconds.
In 1968 the model underwent various modifications and received a number of parts from the new 1750 GTV, including the dashboard, suspension and larger wheels. In 1970, the nose of the GT 1300 Junior was given a facelift; the number of headlights was then reduced to two. The last update took place in 1972 when the wheels were dealt with. That same year, the GT 1600 Junior was introduced and Alfa Romeo stopped producing the right-hand drive 1300 GT models. In 1974 both Junior models were renamed to 1.3 GT Junior and 1.6 GT Junior. Until the end of its production in 1977, more than 91,000 copies of the Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior were built.
