As described by the seller on eBay Motors:
This rare Alfa is a complete car. All bits and pieces are intact. No alterations or modifications have been made, inside or out. It has been well kept and always garaged. It is in daily-driving condition, and is rarely driven except in dry weather. The car has an excellent interior with new rugs. Both front seats have been restored, not just recovered. All gauges are functional. Overall, the car Read More
(Note: The following grammatically challenged description of the Sprint appears exactly
as found on the eBay posting, edited only for brevity. – ED.)
Red exterior with the original red and gray leather interior & red carpets. The panel fit on the Bertone coachwork and over-all aesthetics are excellent. Interior, although original, shows very minimal wear, no rips or tears. The odometer indicates 96,000 but not convinced if they are miles or kilometers. The Arizona title shows the mileage to Read More
The Castagna-bodied 6C 1750 Alfa shown here is a triple masterpiece: its magnificent Vittorio Jano-designed engine, Alfa Romeo’s superb chassis,and the beautifully constructed and subtly detailed Castagna body. In addition, it has been fastidiously restored in Australia by marque specialists Double J.
Vittorio Jano put the P2 GP project behind him and turned his talent and creativity to Alfa Romeo’s commercial products, still derived from Giuseppe Merosi’s designs of the teens. Jano took advantage of the carte blanche assignment Read More
The GTAm models are derived from Alfa’s 1750 Veloce coupe. The Am suffix is a shortened version of “America,” and refers to the US model, which required fuel injection for emission reasons. With full development, the GTAm engine brought twice the brake horsepower available from a standard carbureted car. The bodywork featured fiberglass doors, hood and dashboard and riveted fiberglass fenders. It featured the typical Autodelta sliding-block rear suspension to lower the car’s roll center, thereby improving handling. The Read More
This 1966 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint coupe was formerly owned by Pat Braden, author of Alfa Romeo Owner’s Bible. It has covered approximately 36,000 miles. A complete car, it needs a straightforward, but total, restoration. It “ran when parked,” but that was years ago. The gauges are functioning (or at least they light up and the appropriate needles move when you turn the key), the fuel pump works, the car cranks well from the key-she really “wants to go.” And Read More
A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant Spider bodywork premiered in the US on the 1967 1.6-liter Duetto would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spider’s mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia sedan, comprising independent front suspension, a coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel servo-assisted disc brakes, while the engine was the Giulia Sprint GTV’s 1.6-liter, double-overhead camshaft four. The US-market Duetto was made for just one year before being superseded in 1969 by Read More
This is not just another mouth-watering classic Alfa. Offered here, absolutely fresh from 42 years in the ownership of one British enthusiast, chassis 2111027 is one of three Scuderia Ferrari short-chassis team cars prepared for the 1932 Mille Miglia. While this car did not enter that race, it was one of two cars to first carry the Cavallino Rampante in international competition, at the 1932 Spa 24-hour Endurance Classic. Works driver Piero Taruffi recalls: “For the last two hours, Read More
After joining Alfa Romeo in 1923, Vittorio Jano created the all-conquering P2, an expedient design based largely on Jano’s experience with Fiat’s 1923 Tipo 805 GP car. Jano refined the best elements of the Tipo 805 and designed around some of its weaknesses. But this was not the creative Jano, it was the practical engineer going only as far as necessary to achieve the objective in the time available.
The P2’s 1925 championship initiated a long series of victories. Read More
Alfa’s 1934 6C model was conceived as a natural development of the successful 6C 1500 and 6C 1750 series, and set the pattern for post-war Alfas. With dual overhead camshafts and a 70 x 100-mm bore and stroke, Jano’s final design of a production Alfa Romeo was robust: an engine with seven main bearings and a stiff, boxed-chassis frame. Though designed and built with costs in mind, it carried on the sporting traditions of the Milanese marque.
The success Read More
Vittorio Jano’s 1927 6C 1500 provided the foundation for a series of engines that form the basis of Alfa Romeo’s great prewar reputation. Expanded to 1752 cc, it became the 6C 1750. With two added cylinders, the 6C 1750 design became the 8C 2300. The Tipo B 2.9-liter Grand Prix expanded upon these principles and was ultimately adapted to the famed 8C 2900 sports cars.
However noble, the performance attributes of the 6C 1500 and its derivatives became dated. Read More
