There is something about an Alfa. Bertone knew what they were doing when they designed these cars. They are fantastic.
This 1972 Alfa Romeo GT Junior looks the part. The engine in this car was upgraded to a 1,750cc inline-four with twin Dellorto DHLA 40 carburetors instead of the 1,300cc stock engine.
This Alfa’s exhaust sound is great. Watch the video to hear.
Alfa’s are gorgeous. If I had the means, I would be driving an old Alfa or a BMW 2002. This particular car looks the part from the outside. The interior shot from the driver’s side looks like it is showing the 47 years of age. The seller added images of underneath the rubber floor mats, but it appears that there is sound-deadening material in the way of seeing the actual floor. Some photos of the car on a lift would really have helped.
It is a car that is hard to take my eyes off. The interior does look like it is in good shape with no tears in the seats and an intact headliner. There are cracks in the dashboard.
This car is located in Sicily and comes with Italian registration. I would love to be a part of the jet-set crowd that would fly in to pick this car up, ferry it to Italy, tour through the Italian lakes, and finally drive it to the port in Portugal. We all know that the car handling a road trip like that without any issues is unlikely. But that would be part of the experience.
This auction ends today and doesn’t look like it is going to steamroll its way to the price of most Alfas on BaT. With a couple of hours to go and the bidding is still reasonable. Even if the floors are an issue, which we can’t tell from the images, it’s not a bad price so far.
It is pretty.
