Oscar's Alfa is better than the original
And we've got the photos to prove it.
What happens when you let a custom bike builder feast on a cosmetically beat down Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior? Well, if his name is Oscar Linde, you're in for a pretty sweet ride.
When he bought the car the previous owner had already fitted the GT Junior with a 2 litre block coming from a GTV, with the idea of taking the car to the track - output had been boosted to 165 horsepower, a more than fair amount for a 1.000 kg (2200 lbs) car. Add that to a stiffened chassis and improved braking and I'm sure you'll agree we're talking massively fun drivers' car.
The cosmetics of the car though, were not on par with its handling. So Oscar went to work, giving the car a fresh paint job, removing the bumpers (and shaving the bumper mounts for an even cleaner look). He also did a full leather upholstery job. My favorite upgrade though are those yellow front lights, adding even more to the vintage feel surrounding his GT Junior.
