Completely restored condition using classic alfa parts
Rotisserie bare metal
Original colour from new
From rust-free dry climate
Same owner for 38 years - drove it to University!
Styled by legendary designer Giorgetto Giugiaro when he was only 19 years old – and as an employee of the Bertone studio - the original Alfa Romeo GT Junior became one of the most desirable cars of the late Sixties and early Seventies, evolving into the 1750 and 1750 GTV models from 1971 onward, with flatter frontal styling and larger, more powerful evolutions of the legendary Alfa Twin Cam engine.
Desirable when new, they’re hugely collectable today with a very strong following across the UK and Europe, thanks in no small part to their delicate styling and agile dynamics, which feel incredibly modern for cars of the era.
This one – a Series II 1750 GTV model - is freshly imported from South Africa, where it has been fully restored in its original pale blue colour scheme and has been owned by the same keeper for over 30 years. The restoration work is fully documented and included a bare-metal respray.

The seller has completed all of the import and duty paperwork relative to the car so there are no additional taxes to pay, while the DVLA NOVA notification and original South African registration document are included.
Vendor is also happy to help the buyer register the car in the UK if that’s where it remains after it is sold - the process is very simple and costs less than £100 to complete.
Retrimmed black leather
Wooden dash with stainless steel highlights
Wood-rimmed steering wheel restored by piano polisher
Excellent carpets and headlining
The Alfa’s black leather seats have been retrimmed during its restoration, using seat coverings from Classic Alfa, and are in excellent condition, while the rest of the cabin is in equally impressive order.
The carpets and door cards are in exceptional condition, and the headlining is in matching good condition, having been retrimmed. One of the car’s most delicate features is its delightful wood-rimmed steering wheel, which has just been restored by a piano polisher.
All of the internal rubbers and door seals have been replaced, such is the detail applied to the restoration.
Gorgeous pale blue paint
Very good chrome and trim
Bare metal respray
Like all GTVs, this one looks sensational, partly due to its inarguably beautiful styling, but also because of its overall condition.
It has just been restored in South Africa following 30 years of ownership, and was stripped down to bare metal and repainted in its original colour. It’s freshly finished and looks beautiful, with no evidence of any damage or corrosion anywhere.
The wheels have been powder-coated and fitted with new hub caps, while a new set of Firestone tyres completes the look. All of the chrome, trim and light lenses are in good order.
1,750cc Twin Cam
Excellent under-bonnet presentation
Under the bonnet you’ll find Alfa Romeo’s legendary twin cam engine – a lively unit with a wonderful soundtrack and a rev-hungry nature. It’s a terrific engine with a well-earned reputation for being an all-time classic, presented here in 1750 form with 113bhp, fed to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
It has recently benefitted from a 1-2-3 electronic ignition system, rebuilt carbs, a new stainless exhaust system, brand-new clutch and replacement brake discs and pads.
We were able to conduct a short test drive of the car and can confirm that it is a wonderful thing to drive, with a smooth-shifting five-speed transmission and eager performance. The brakes, steering and suspension all seem to work without fault and it holds a steady temperature and an even idle.
This is a lovely example of an all-time Alfa Romeo classic, finished in a gorgeous colour and in terrific, newly restored condition. It’s a delicate and beautifully styled car, presented in wonderful condition and in need of nothing. One to use, show and enjoy whilst inevitably falling in love with it at the same time.
