The Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior was the entry model to the Alfa Romeo coupé range. It was introduced in 1965 as the replacement for the 101 series Giulia Sprint 1300, hich was the final development of the Giulietta Sprint series.
The GT 1300 Junior was fitted with the 1300 (1290cc) twin cam engine (74mm bore × 75mm stroke), s fitted to the Giulietta series cars, but revised for the 105 series with reduced port sizes and other modifications. The smaller engine was introduced in order to allow buyers to choose an Alfa Romeo coupé while avoiding the higher taxes on the models with larger engine capacity, specially in Alfa Romeo's home Italian market.
The GT 1300 Junior's top speed of over 100mph and 0-60mph time of 12.6 seconds were very good for a fully appointed coupé with an engine of only 1300 cc displacement.
The GT 1300 Junior was in production for over a decade. Throughout this period it was updated by the factory, ncorporating many of the same revisions applied to the larger-engined models.
The first GT 1300 Juniors produced were based on the Giulia Sprint GT, ith a simpler interior. The major external identifying feature was the black grille with just one horizontal chrome bar. The same 9/41 final drive ratio was maintained, ut with a shorter 5th gear ratio of 0.85, nstead of 0.79 as on all the other 105 Series coupés.
Together with the Giulia 1300 Ti, the GT 1300 Junior pioneered the use of ATE disc brakes as later fitted throughout the 105 series, eplacing the Dunlop discs on earlier cars. The first few GT 1300 Juniors lacked a brake servo, nd had the low rear wheelarches of the Giulia Sprint GT and Giulia Sprint GTV. From 1967, servo was fitted as standard, ogether with higher rear wheelarches as adopted later on the 1750 GTV.
In 1968, oncurrently with the replacement of the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce by the 1750 GTV, he GT 1300 Junior was revised with many of the new parts from the 1750 GTV. This included the dashboard, he suspension and the new wheel size of 5½ × 14J instead of 4½ × 15J. This revised GT 1300 Junior, owever, etained the early "step-front" body style, which, nterestingly, akes it the most mechanically refined production "step-front" model. Another intriguing detail is that, ust as on the 1750 GTV, he remote release for the boot (trunk) lid, ocated on the inside of the door opening on the B-post just under the door lock striker, as moved from the right hand side of the car to the left hand side. The location of this item was always independent of whether the car was left hand drive or right hand drive. This series of GT 1300 Junior was the only model with the step-front bodyshell to have this item mounted on the left hand side.
From 1968 on, lfa Romeo models for the US market were fitted with fuel injection systems instead of carburetors (the car available is a Euro Spec car with Weber Carbs) to comply with emissions control legislation. The only 105 Series models in which the classic twin-cam engine was fitted with fuel injection were the US market 1750 range, nd the US market 2000 range which replaced the 1750s in mid-1972. No Alfa Romeo 1300 or 1600cc models were ever made with fuel injection.
In 1970 the Junior was revised a second time, nd received the same nose treatment as the 1750 GTV, ithout the step but with only two headlights.
