* Please note that this car will be available for viewing by prior appointment in Belgium.

Launched in 1963, the Giulia Sprint GT featured classically stylish four-seater coachwork designed by Carrozzeria Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro, though this was now manufactured not by Bertone but at Alfa's new factory at Arese. Beneath the skin the new coupé utilised the recently introduced 105-Series Giulia TI saloon's five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and - early cars excepted - all round disc brakes. The Sprint GT came with 106bhp on tap (up from the TI's 92bhp courtesy of two twin-choke Weber carburettors) an output sufficient for a top speed of around 112mph, while improvements to the inlet ports characterised the more-powerful (109bhp) engine of the Sprint GTV (or GT Veloce) introduced for 1967.

The success of the Giulia 1300 TI saloon, a cheaper alternative to the Giulia 1600 TI, prompted Alfa Romeo to do the same with its Bertone-styled coupé. Introduced in 1966, the GT 1300 Junior looked almost exactly like its big brother but came with the 1,290cc version of Alfa's twin-cam four under the bonnet. Equipped with two twin-choke Weber carburettors, the '1.3' produced 89bhp at 6,000rpm, which was good enough for a top speed of around 105mph (170km/h), not far short of the 1600's maximum. Externally, the GT 1300 Junior was distinguishable by its slightly different radiator grille, boot lettering and hubcaps, while the interior was more basic than that of the larger model. Exhilarating driver's cars, the GT range was an immense success for Alfa Romeo, enjoying a 14-year production run lasting until 1977.

This 1300 GT was delivered new in Italy and has been in Belgium for the last 15 or so years. The car was the recipient of an older restoration which has held up well but is beginning to show its age in some areas. The undersides are understood to be particularly sound and the car is said to drive very well, which perhaps reflects the fact that it has always been serviced and maintained by specialists. The car comes with its original Belgian registration document.
