The example we have at hand is a 68 model it has a 1290 cc sized engine top speed at 170 km p/h.
There are a few differences between the 1300 and the 1750, the opening quarter lights, center console, three spoke wood rimmed steering wheel which was replaced by a not so popular two spoke plastic rimmed one.
The Junior had a few noticeable difference from the outside, having black coloured front lower bumper and absence of plastic headlamp covers.
In total 2680 1300 Juniors were made over the span of two years 1968-69.
Only 97 original RHD 1300 Juniors were made, which makes this example extremely rare.
The spider name originates from the english word ‘speeder’ a two person open horse carriage.
We will be carrying out a full restoration to this Alfa Spider Junior, starting with dismantling all parts, labeling, tagging and storing away in our parts rooms.
Sending the body away to be dipped, upon its return we will be primering the body and associated panels, inspecting what panels we will be requiring and making a start on the body work.
All this will be the first stage of works to be carried out and undertaken.
