to bring up something interesting....at least for some of us
I recently noticed something quite confusing.
On the attached photo, you see an Alfa 1900 Convertible by Boneschi.
First I thought this would be the Alfa 1900 Boneschi Astral, but I was wrong.
This car here is in some details different to the Astral...
And then I took a careful look at the backside of the factory photo and mentioned the stunning text:
"Elaborazione su "Romeo" Brevetto Modello Industriale N. 6571!"
With my limited Italian knowledge this means that the Alfa is a work on an industial model called "Romeo".
And "Romeo" is a truck or van, presented in 1954.
So does anyone regard it as possible that Boneschi built this convertible on a truck chassis?????
Converting a Coupe to a convertible requires extra stiffness for the chassis, that's evident.
Using a truck chassis from the beginning makes the job easier - maybe....
But how does a convertible on a truck-base handle? As a truck????
I am looking forward to your comments
