Junior Zagato Buyer's Guide

Disclaimer: The information given in this buyer's guide is carefully checked and has its offspring in years of experience with the Junior Z. Devoting most of your attention to the bodywork is familiar wisdom when buying any car, but with Zagatos it's crucial. The author can not be made responsible for any results of a decision based on this guide. It is a good idea to contact members of the Alfa Romeo Club in your country or try to find owners of this car on classic car meetings in order to find out everything you need to know.

If you think of buying a Junior Zagato, either the 1300 or the 1600 model, you should take some facts into consideration.

Most probably you already had a look on the other pages on this site dealing specially with the history and restoration of the Junior Z.

If not I would recommend to do so, because you can spot additional possible weaknesses of the car.

To make access to the information you are after as easy as possible I have posted different chapters:

Chapter: Content:
Identification Where to find identification numbers and stickers
Bodywork All there is to know about rusty spots - very important
Engine Engine details and secrets
Transmission Gear problems? Not really...
Suspension, Steering, Brakes Taunt suspension means twice the fun
Interior Avoid spending megabucks!
What to pay / Conclusion Money issues
