Alfa Romeo 1972 GT 1600 Junior | Located Brisbane, Australia

 

With only 426 RHD Alfa Romeo GT 1600 juniors ever produced in the year of 1972, this vehicle has become quite a rare car to obtain. The marque was in production from 1972 to 1976 with only 1861 GT 1600 Juniors built in total. This combined with the fact that many were converted to race cars emphasises the rarity of finding a car as good as the car for sale is here.

Originally purchased from Melbourne Victoria and 10 years in the making, this verging on perfect restoration is now for sale. The current owner has an exceptional eye for detail and skilled hand in craftsmanship. “Any work that was beyond my expertise was handed on to experts” says the owner.

The engine, gearbox and differential has been meticulously worked on by Brisbane Afla Romeo specialists Automotion, along with body work done by GT Motors. GT Motors famed for their specialist work on some of the top marques found in Australia.  

And finally paint work was completed by Kings Customs of the Sunshine Coast in Hawthorn White.

Moving on to the interior, all hood linings, front and back seats were purchased as original. What was not restored was purchased new from Alfaholics and Classic Alfa.
