Mention Alfa Romeos from the 1960s and 1970s and what usually springs to mind is the marque’s 105 Series Coupé, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone, considered to be one of his greatest designs. Not only as one of the best looking and handling classic saloon cars of the period, but the advanced specification, with its five-speed gearbox, all-round disc brakes, independent suspension, and powerful twin-cam engine, still has the capability to embarrass many of its modern counterparts.

A rare right hand drive, this 1300 Alfa Romeo was first registered in 1969 in South Africa and remained in the warm dry climate until the current owner imported the car in 2021. This 2 litre Nord engine has now been upgraded to Alfaholics stage 1 with a verified dyno at 141 BHP, the work was carried out by race specialist Bradbury Engineering to the following specifications:  High compression pistons, Alfaholics carburettor mounds with uprated air intake filters, a rebuilt head to fast road spec, Alfaholics springs and suspension, a rebuilt cylinder head and rebuilt ignition system.

Supplied with bills from Alfaholics and the engineering work from Bradbury Engineering totalling over £10,000. This example benefits from a limited slip differential, VAN de Linde four branch exhaust, BMW four pot brake calipers, a rebuilt steering box and 15-inch Alfaholics GTA veloce wheels coupled to an Alfaholics retro stereo. We are informed the body is in excellent condition and the interior, which was retrimmed by the previous owner, is in very good condition. With Alfaholics cars worth an incredible figure, this very rare example looks like incredible value.
