1972 Alfa Romeo Gt1600Junior

Alfa Romeo Gt1600Junior

My 72 Gt 1600 Junior.

Car has been in family since I was born as my uncles student car in 1990.

I worked on my car myself with help from a workshop manual. Removed gearbox myself and got it redone as the car had been given to me as a gift.
Got my license in this beaut 1st time 09 January 2009 . It was the best motoring experience in my life and how many people can say their first car was an alfa and even learned to drive in one.

Its been two years since bike accident(2010) leaving me parelysed chest down. Since that the car has been at standing still. The middel of may 2012 work commenced and Automatic gearbox parts started.

The Box we sourced came off a rusted down rare 2000 Bertone GTC. We also sourced the big brake pedal from same car.

Shell be the only working Automatic Stepnose in SA. Were planning an electronic power steering(EPAS) mod and a steering quickner. Also going a classic hand controls mod.

Shes pulling very strongly but she really not a sight for sore eyes at the moment hence no interior pictures.Going the 1750 series 2 center console so allot of manufacturing for an original look.

Please contact if you need info or have/need parts on the ZF-3ph12 automatic gearboxes.I have pdf versions of the workshop manuals on the autoboxes.

An alfisti never DIES their spirit goes on living in each alfa giving them their temperament.
