FS: 1900 CSS (C Super Sprint) 1a serie-1955

There is a perfect 1900 C Super Sprint for sale. She is the first series 1900 CSS, built by Carrozzeria Touring.

Very beautiful, very elegant and in great condition. I doubt that the cars just exiting from the factory at those days were at better shape than her!!!

Totally original, homologated by ASI (nr.7315) and having the certification passport from FIVA (nr. 017982).

Chassis number: 02009
Engine number: Tipo AR 1308 nr.01284

Only 2 owners since her construction, she yet has the first registration plateand the first original booklet. All the history of her life is registered and known by the owner.

4 cylinders in line, 1975 cc, 115 hp, 5 speed gearbox.

For more info contact to the seller of the car at info@angeloautocase.it or visit his website: www.angeloautocase.net

It is a first series 1900 SS, with 1975cc motor...actually making it a 3rd series Touring bodied 1900 coupe.

The 1st series is a 1900 CS, with 1884cc motor and doors that extend through the running board. Some other body and mechanical details are different.

The 2nd series is also 1884cc, and is identical to the 1st series, except the doors stop at the top of the running boards.

The 4th series looks something like a big Giulietta spider and has the 1975cc motor. Mechanically, the 4th series cars are identical to the car pictured.

The motors in all of the 1900s are similar to the later 102 series, but they have the old style valve trains, like a 6c2500 and earlier Alfas. Series 1 are the rarest, but prices are similar for all four series cars.

What is the owner asking as to price? The car looks superb!

Stu, you are right. It's a 3rd series 1900 Sprint. By writing 1st series 1900 CSS i meant that is the first version of the 1900 C Super Sprint's.

I dont know the actual price of the car. I have just taken this info from the web site where there isn't mentioned any price figure.

Get the prices and post them. No one is going to bother without having some idea of the asking price..

It's very beautiful; one of the best Touring 5-window CSS 1900s I've ever seen, but I think the price is a bit high for collectors in the US.

At the current rate of exchange, that would be $98,000 PLUS shipping and US customs duties!

Some very nice (but not quite as nice) 1900 coupes (all series and coachbuilders) can be found here for around $50,000 to $60,000.

I am sorry, I think your friend asks too much for his cars to be able to sell them here in the US..
