My name is RaphaŽl Niro.
I'm a 23 years old student (last year master in management at HEC-Ulg) and I come from Belgium.
One month ago (5th september 2014), I've bought an Alfa Romťo GT Junior 1600 Z (chassis nį394) to a retired man called M. Duesberg who lives in Trooz not far away from my hometown Herve.
I'm very proud of this barn find because it was my dream to own a rare italian car.
I am a classic car fanatic, my father's family is Italian and I am proud of my roots. Maybe this explains it...
I've looked for it for 3 years and I've saved money since I was 18 years old.
I know I've had a lot of luck to find this Zagato. Anyway, I've literally emptied my savings account for this lost car...
According to M. Fazio from Centro Documentazione Alfa Romťo, this chassis number AR 3060394 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo 1600 Junior Z (115.24), manufactured on the 18th October 1973 and sold on the 30th October 1973 to Alfa Romeo Belgium. The body colour is metallic grey, with leather tex interiors.

As you can see, the car is not original and must be completely restored!
It'll be awesome to me if I can share this restoration with you and have your advice!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon,
