Zagato has always been good at turning the ordinary into extraordinary. And so it goes with the Junior Zagato, based off the Alfa Romeo 1300 and 1600 105/115 series Giulia coupes. These were very modern looking cars for their time, with fastback styling and headlamps made flush via Perspex covers. The Zagato 1600 wound up being a tad longer than the 1300, with a longer sloping back and slightly revised rear panel. Just over 400 of these diminutive sports coupes were made and but a handful exist in the US. This one for sale in Michigan is one of them.
1973 Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato 1600: 402 produced, 12 in the U.S. I imported the car in 1977. The car is in excellent condition, no rust, drives great, new interior. 33,750 miles. Price: $64,000
We featured a 1971 Junior Zagato 1300 last year, which had a starting bid of $28,500. At $64,000, this is quite a dear price for this small Alfa and is closing in on exotic territory. This car has been for sale since late last year, so I'd suspect a little will have to come off the asking price to move the metal. I'd suspect it might wind up selling eventually for somewhere between $30,000 and $40,000.
