I purchased this very rare GT Jr. from a US serviceman that had owned the Alfa while stationed in Italy.  It had been his daily driver, and is not a garage queen.  It is a very rare car here in the US, since they never imported Jr’s into the US.  The color is very rare as well.  It is called “Faggio” which is a deep maroon – almost a black cherry color.  Quite striking, and only found on the European models.  At some point while still in Italy, the 1300 was replaced with a European 1750 engine with dual webers.  The Alfa was imported into the US in 2004.  Since it is a European model, it has Italian gauges and the Speedometer is in Kilometers.  The odometer shows 21,000 Km, and has obviously turned over.” 

Located in Novi, Michigan with a reserve on eBay.

    Note how the dark “Faggio” color does such an outstanding job of camouflaging the terminal cancer in the door skins!

    No doubt. The car does look solid underneath but the doors are flaking more than dandruff.
