This Alfa might be black and Blu (Olandese), but it’s far from beaten up. According to its owner, it’s “original and without modifications” and 99.9 percent free of corrosion. However, it does come with an “original Italian log book and some service history.” In terms of the automaker’s history, the Junior filled the shoes of its predecessor, the Giulietta Sprint.

The “very positive” five-speed manual gearbox is connected to 4.56 gears in the back and an 89-bhp DOHC 1.3-liter I4 up front. Such a combination is good for a 0-60 mph run in the 12-second range. A pair of Weber carburetors was original equipment for these entry-level Alfa coupes back in the ’70s, as were disc brakes. The latter helped these Bertone-styled two-doors come to a stop from a maximum speed of over 100 mph.

rear suspension seems to need adjustment – the car is awkwardly high in the rear…. apart from that looks great
