Alfa Romeo 1900 C Touring 1953
On the market Alfa Romeo 1900 Coupé’s are extremely rare and sought after. Three series exist, differing by body factory and type. All of them carry a thin skin of alloy, completely handcrafted and individually manufactured. In fact, in 1954 the Alfa Romeo 1900 “Corto” Coupé was priced DM 2.000 higher than a Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing!
This car is one of the few examples still in existence from the rare first series Tipo I. These models have a lower more elegant roofline without the characteristic triangle windows of the Tipo 2. The doorshutline cuts the rockerpanel and the boot lid could only be opened by a small lever behind the backseats without the exterior press knob.
This Alfa has been used very little since its purchase for the collection, but it has been very well followed by our mechanic and runs now much better than when purchased.
