Tipo 105.30

1972 Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior

Coachwork by Bertone

Chassis no. AR1285254

The GT 1300 Junior:

By the mid 1960’s, Alfa was in its heyday with the offering of the 105/115 series. Designed by (the then 17 year-old) Giorgetto Giugiaro the Gran Turismo (in-short GT) iteration of the 105 series is widely regarded as Alfa’s finest hour. It boasted onto the scene in 1963 in its inaugural form, containing numerous revolutionary technicalities; a 5-speed gearbox, 4-wheel disc brakes and twin overhead camshafts to name but a few.
These GT’s just tick so many boxes as an eminently usable and enjoyable classic motorcar; timeless design wrapped around technically advanced ingenuity for utmost driving pleasure in an unparalleled wide variety of circumstances. Due to the comparatively high attrition rate over the years due to its sensibility to corrosion, unmolested specimen in genuinely great condition are highly sought-after by enthusiasts.
This GT 1300 Junior:
The GT on offer here, chassis no. AR1285254, is one of 5976 cars produced in 1973 and was consigned in the breath-taking colour combination of Azzuro Le Mans AR348 over a Brown leatherette upholstery.
Originally delivered to its domestic market in Italy, it is strongly believed chassis AR1285254 stayed in Italy throughout its entire life. Some years ago the car underwent a sympathetic restoration, where the body, paint and interior were brought back to the high standards it is presented with today with its shade of Azzuro Le Mans AR348 and the correct upholstery materials.
Today the GT presents in simply splendid form (both technically as well as aesthetically), with a believed to be original 44k km’s on the odometer. On the pictures of the underside one can recognize some yellow remnants left and right, this is old rustproofing which turned yellow over time - it is the reason the body is still in great shape and therefore a great given! As the car stayed stationary for quite some time, we decided to undertake some recommissioning works before offering it for sale. All works have been carefully documented either by imagery or by invoices. The most notable works that have been carried out by Alfa specialist LTC Racing in October – November 2021 totalling around €4000,-:
  • New clutch set (friction plate, Pressure plate & release bearing)

  • New clutch slave cylinder + connecting hose

  • New fuel tank

  • New exhaust piece + gasket (middle)

  • New fluids (including waterless coolant)

  • Instalment of performance air filter

  • Full carburettor rebuilt incl. tune-up and ignition reset

  • Camshafts set “on point”

  • Compression-test and general engine check-over. LTC Racing confirms the engine is strongly believed to have never been fully overhauled and that the 44k km’s is the cars’ original mileage.

The car is accompanied by all original accessories including the owners manual and the original jack. It goes without saying that this GT is as ready as it can be for a new custodian to enjoy it for many years to come. The engine pulls a treat, the gearbox is butter smooth with no crunching synchro’s by any means. The body of the car presents in great form as well with all body- and shut lines aligning correctly and consistently. It is evident this motorcar has never seen any accidents and presents truthfully.
A GT like very few others out there. Presented in simply superb condition in an utterly desirable (and rare!) specification. Fresh from recent recommissioning works and thoroughly checked-over by marque experts, if you’ve had your eyes peeled on one of these and were waiting for the right car to cross your path – the wait is now over!
