Does anybody have some information about the following car?

Alfa Rome 6C 2300 B Cabriolet
Chassis #814047

There is a rumour that this is an ex-Schlumpf Car, that was stolen in the 70's.

Why the dealers don't know the history?

Unfortunately this is a common problem of the dealers: wrapping a nice package i 'll sale the car easily...
Paragraph 3 -
Line 5: Pinin Farina wasn't a designer, he never designed a car.
Line 6 and 9: Futurism architecture and Art deco are 2 different styles, in particular the Futurism architecture doesn't concern the car design but it's a new model of architecture which enhances the functionality and the beauty of a building and the Art deco was a visual arts design style in general.
Line 5 and 7: Pinin Farina was obsessed by the streamlining and the connection with Mario Revelli de Beaumont, who really designed this car, helped him to put the ideas in practice.
Line 7: the Bocca brothers were the Lancia dealers in Biella. In 1936 they commissioned a small series of Lancia Astura, generally called "tipo Bocca", not because they had a sloping rear or a reclined radiator, but because they were beautiful cars, never seen before on the market thanks to the Revelli's flamboyant style. One of these car has been exhibited at Pebble beach last August.
Line 10: the hood hasn't an electrical mechanism, but an electro-pneumatic mechanism, patented by Pinin Farina in 1936.
Line 10 and 11: the aerodynamic wheel trims, made by Fergat, has been applied on many cars: Lancias, Alfas, Fiats, etc. The main characteristic was to simulate the movement of the car when the car was parked.

Hi PG1964.

Agree with you on most of the subjects.
I never understood why people insist in relating art and cars, such as in this case Futurism, which was an avant-garde art movement, with art déco, which was a style, and cars!!!

I was also referring to the "rumour" of the car being stolen.
Please be carefull with these kind of statements.

Mario Revelli di Beaumont is being discovered in the last years as a very influential person in those years.

The car looked bice, though.

Regards and thanks for your input!
