Carrozzeria Zagato Milano S.r.l. has been responsible for some pretty polarizing designs during its nearly 100-year existence. The Alfa Romeo Zagato Junior fits comfortably within this time-honored way of doing things differently, from its glass-covered nose to its abrubt Kamm tail. Styled by Ercole Spada and built upon the 1300/1600 Spider platform, the Zagato retained these cars’ fantastic handling traits and enthusiastic (if not teeming with tire-shredding power) drivetrains, but repacked them in a suitably odd yet very sharp suit.

The first thing you’ve undoubtedly noticed about this car is the striking neon pea green/gold color it wears, a shade suited to its general oddness that’s also spot-on period correct. It’s hard to imagine a non-Italian vehicle in the '60s or '70s pulling off such an outlandish hue as well as this car does. A 1973 model, this car benefits from the upsized 1,600 CC motor introduced on series II cars a year previously—additionally, these later cars are about four inches longer, primarily in the rear, and do not share the same aluminum opening panels as their 1,300 predecessors.

It claims only 27,000 miles on the clock, but in what currency isn’t mentioned—even if it’s miles rather than klicks, though, it’s a nice, low number. The car has spent most of its life on the Canary Islands, according to the seller, who now keeps it in La Laguna, Spain, where it’s offered free of rust and in excellent condition throughout, according to their somewhat limited English. Given that rust and electrical problems are the top of any secondhand Alfa buyer’s potential fixit list, those claims are quite reassuring—as always, it’d best to arrange a local inspection before bidding, however. Bonus points are awarded for what’s claimed to be a full service documentation and 100% originality.

The seller is asking $35k for the BIN, or exactly $10k less than a condition 1 car according to Haggerty. It looks super-clean in photos, and provided there are no nasty hidden surprises beneath that Martian banana enamel, it could prove to be quite a score.

We’d love to find ourselves behind its lovely wood-rimmed steering wheel, rowing that signature Alfa horizontally mounted shift, and relishing it the induction honk of what has to be one of the finest four cylinders ever designed. If any of that sounds fun to you, too, this car could be worth your attention.

NOS RH Vent Window for Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato 1300 and 1600

NOS RH Vent Window for Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato 1300 and 1600

Here we have an original, unused, New-Old-Stock vent window as used in the Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato 1300 and Junior Zagato 1600.

Although we call it a vent window, it is actually the triangular at the front side of the doors of the JZ.

With this window glass being unique to the Junior Zagatos and with very few cars still being broken for spares (rightfully so!) these parts are becoming VERY scarce!

Please note that we ONLY have the RIGHT (passenger!) side available!

Officially called "Cristallo Finestrino - Destra", the part number is 105.93.61.515.00 and it can be found on table 121 of the parts catalog of the Junior Zagato 1300 and table 132 of the parts catalog of the Junior Zagato 1600.

This is original 1970 production by Securit / Saint Gobin!

Only 2 available.

We offer FREE shipping to ANY destination in the world on this item but given its value and rarity, we advise you to take the optional insurance (available at check-out) on it.

Vintage 1950s 1960s Zagato lapel pin

Here we have a genuine and vintage 1950's / 1960's Zagato logo lapel pin made by OMEA.

As visible in the photos, it does have some loss to the white cloisonné.

The overall height of the rear tab is roughly 19.5 mm (0.75 inch) with the logo measuring some 14 mm (0.55 inch) in width and 11 mm (0.43 inch) in height.

The rear of the tab has been marked by the manufacturer, OMEA of Milano Italy, including their logo and even their address: V. Albani 20.

A rare find that simply oozes patina and character!
