We enjoyed using this Alfa throughout last Summer while at the same time addressing issues and tidying details. Recent attention from XK Engineering (new lower wings) has insured the car is absolutely corrosion free and without filler. Imported from Italy in 2003, the temperate climate has been kind to this car! The file includes many receipts and past MOT’s proving much care has been lavished upon her over the years.
The gearbox has been professionally stripped, assessed and re-built by a specialist gearbox re-builder. During his assessment he found only second gear synchro to require replacing as well as a bearing and the seals. Whilst the box was out a clutch kit and release bearing was fitted. The slave cylinder was replaced.
The 1300cc engine fires up instantly from hot or cold and sounds very impressive, it idles well and performs surprisingly well for its size. The oil pressure is perfect whether hot or cold and the car runs at a nice temperature (80*c) The engine has benefitted from a recent top end rebuild. The engine bay is very nicely presented, We have the original air box too should the new owner wish to revert back to standard, but the free flowing inlet trumpets make for an incredible induction noise! The exhaust is very recent too. The car was last serviced by Keys Motorsport Silverstone.
The interior is beautifully original with the exception being Classic Alfa matting and insulation fitted by the Trim Centre. The seats are original and in superb condition without tears, the dash is also original and without cracks. All instruments and controls operate as they should.
Alfaholics handling kit has been installed, the car can be driven enthusiastically with confidence.
This charismatic Alfa Romeo 1300 GT Junior step nose is properly sorted both mechanically and cosmetically. Priced to sell and for sure a confident investment.
