THERE are three interesting Alfa Romeos listed in the catalogue for Coys’ next classic car auction at Ascot Racecourse on October 10.
Lot 112 is a 1970 Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato, entered with no reserve. The GT 1300 Junior Zagato was a limited production two-seater coupé with aerodynamic bodywork by Zagato of Milan.
Purchased by the current vendors family in the early 1970s, this Junior Zagato was last taxed in 1979 and has remained in storage ever since. During the 1980s the car was stripped back as part of a restoration project but sadly never finished.
Sold as viewed, this little Alfa presents itself as a fantastic project to bring it back to its former glory; the car is largely complete with a black interior and is supplied with two engines, a gearbox and various trim items.
Lot 168 is a 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider ‘Duetto’, which carries an estimate of £9,000 – £12,000.
A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant Spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Alfa Romeo Duetto would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. This Spider Duetto, presented in black with a beige hood and interior, is in good condition. It comes with its original owner’s manual and Italian paperwork.
Lot 103 is a 1968 Alfa Romeo GT Junior, with one owner from new, and carrying an estimate of £20,000 – £25,000.
The GT 1300 Junior was the entry model to the Alfa Romeo coupe range. It was introduced in 1965 as the replacement for the 101 series Giulia Sprint 1300, which was the final development of the Giulietta Sprint series.
This stunning blue 1300 GT is finished in the lovely Alfa Romeo shade of deep navy over grey. Both body and chassis are in excellent order, and as one would expect with a one-owner car. The grey cloth interior complements the exterior perfectly, showing just the right patina for an 88,000 km car. The matching numbers engine is again in excellent order, starting on the button.
