- In superb condition, carefully maintained
- Just 402 units made as a 1600
- Signature Zagato design
- No reserve
The 1600 Junior Zagato we are offering has had only three owners. The most recent is a passionate collector of Italian cars, particularly sports models, light and pleasant to drive. Desiring that his cars drive perfectly, he has recently completed the work already done in the past, with a total billing of 2,000 at RPM. It adds up to a previous repair of the engine and mechanicals, worth nearly 7,500 in 2010.
This car still has the "Blu Francia" color with which it left the factory. The body was repainted in 2010, with very careful detailing, for a total cost of 12,000. The interior is in a very good original condition and still has its period Zagato carpet, impossible to find nowadays. The matching chassis and engine numbers have been validated by the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo. The car features new GTA alloy rims and comes with its original registration documents. Our drive confirmed a particularly strong and agile car.
This model is particularly exclusive and Ercole Spada, the famous Zagato chief designer, considers it one of his best designs. Made on the base of the Giulia, but with the chassis shortened by 10cm, it featured a Zagato body, which, in addition to offering a beautiful shape, also made the car lighter. First offered as a 1300, the Junior Zagato became a 1600 in 1972. In this configuration, the production run was just 402 units, perhaps because of the significantly higher price compared to the standard Coupée. It is indeed a model of great rarity.
In addition to these features, the example that we offer has the advantage of being well maintained and preserved in careful hands, which is very important for this type of car.
