Just when I’m making some real progress on my Fulvia search, along comes this Alfa Romeo 1300 GT Junior to distract me.
It had a full restoration in the late 1990’s but is still looking remarkably good – and it’d want to given the $23,000 price tag.
The 1300 engine has been replaced with a 2-litre Alfa engine for some extra oomph. There’s a number of electrical and mechanical upgrades to go with that, too. The original 1300 engine is available to come with the car.
I’ve long had a Bertone coupe on my automotive bucket list but I was thinking more of a genuine 1750 or 2000. I love the single-light simplicity on the front of the Junior, though, and with a 2000 engine slotted in (check the clean engine bay!!), this car might just be the best of both worlds.
I’ve got two Australian Fulvias in sight right now and I’m going to continue chasing those for the moment. If they don’t lead to a conclusion in the near-medium term, however, then this Alfa looks mighty, mighty tempting. It’s certainly putting me off the trouble and complexity of bringing a Fulvia here from the UK.
So many cars. So little time (space, money, etc)….
