- Model rarely found in France
- Attractive presentation, original interior

The Alfa Romeo records state that this car left the factory on 21 January 1961 and was delivered new on 4 September to Collegno, near Turin. With very sound bodywork, the car has been repainted in the original pale blue colour. It offers wonderful finishing touches such as the chromed support for the plate lights elegantly shaped with the words " Alfa Romeo " between three small stripes. A sticker " In rodaggio " is attached to the rear window. The wheel rims are in great condition and reveal, at the front, the large finned brake drums. On this series 2, the "moustaches" on the grille are wider apart than on the Series 1, improving the air-flow to the engine compartment. This example is presented correctly, including the boot complete with rubber mat, cover for the spare wheel and original jack.
The interior is in the same condition, with wonderful fabric and leatherette upholstery in original condition, slightly faded in places. It demonstrates the attention to the finishing of this small sporting saloon by the manufacturer. The door linings are fitted with storage pockets and on the elegant black and ivory steering wheel, the horn is on a chrome ring. The gearshift is also on the steering wheel.
The linear speedometer, graduated to 180 km/h is flanked on the left by a rev counter and the right by a combined water and oil temperature gauge, and the odometer records 30,419 km. With a 1300 engine producing 74 bhp, this lightweight car offered a better performance than other cars in its class. With its neat and well-preserved interior, the new owner will enjoy driving this nimble and sporty car.
