The 1970`s …
Avalanches of cars with tourists from the north of Europe crawl over the Alps and serpentines towards the south. When we were kids, we craned our necks in the back seat when we were overtaken by rattling Vespas or those racy Italian sports cars. We knew: now the vacation begins. Bored on the back seat of our sober german station wagon, this was always the highlight and all the strain of the droning Abba and Roland Kaiser cassettes that had been blaring for hours was forgotten. The car radio picked up the first Italian stations and Umberto Tozzi and Gianna Nannini underscored the lifestyle of the south. The anticipation of sea, pasta and pizza increased immeasurably. Damn… imagine how much we wanted one of those Italian racy sports cars.
Alfa Romeo introduced the new GT 1600 Junior (Tipo 115.03) as the 3rd Giulia generation. The new design was no longer a “Kantenhauber”; the front end became smoother with two round individual headlights and a horizontal chrome strut.
This 1972 Alfa Romeo 1600 GT Junior is available. It is very detailed, in matching colors, high quality restored Alfa. It got upgraded with the 2000 GT Veloce engine with 131HP.
Watch it driving by:
The current owner decided to upgrade this 1600 with the 2000 GT Veloce engine to have the best performance. The car left the factory on 14th September 1972 in green AR227 and cognac Interieur as it is presented today and got sold in Roma on 13th November 1972. For higher level and quality, the owner decided to change the cognac leatherette to real leather. The seats were not simply reupholstered, but sandblasted and recoated.
