Description

The Alfa Romeo 105/115 series Coupés were built from 1963 until 1977. They were the successors to the celebrated Giulietta Sprint coupé and used the shortened floor-pan from the Giulia saloon car. The basic body shape, shared by all models, was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone. It was one of his first major projects for Bertone and is often regarded as one of his finest commercial projects. It borrowed heavily from his earlier design for the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint/2600 Sprint. The balance of glass and metal, the influence of the shape of the front and rear glass on the shape of the cabin, and the flat grille with incorporated headlamps were all considered ground-breaking styling features for the era. Often considered as one of the best looking and handling classic saloon cars with its five-speed gearbox, all round disc brakes, independent suspension and torquey engine they were very advanced for the time and have the capability to embarrass many of their modern counterparts.

This charming Alfa Romeo GT Junior is an original left-hand drive example and was sold new in sunny Italy. Subsequently, the body work is highly original order. The car was imported from Italy 8 years ago and has been kept in dry conditions both on and off the road since. There are some recent MoT certificates and some invoices in file.

Described by the vendor as "in wonderful original condition, with no rust whatsoever having never been restored with original engine gearbox and running gear," the car is finished attractively in white with black interior. It has covered a believed genuine 65,000 kilometres and would make an absolutely ideal entry into the world of classic cars. Offered at a most sensible estimate, come and grab yourself a slice of affordable Italian exotica.
