ROMEO TENDER/Transporter.

Can anyone help?? I'm looking at the possibility of building/restoring a Tender/transporter for my Giulia race car. I have no idea what Alfa have produced in flatbeds or anything that would be appropriate for this use.
Thanks
Jim

A12 transporter

Jim,

This truck is the only single-vehicle transporter that I know, a conversion by Scattollini. I saw this A12 earlier this year and it's a lovely example, to my untrained eye. Might inspire you!

The link to the Black & White Garage page is here and contains further details.

Cheers,

Alex.

Thanks Alex.
Do you know where I might be able to pick up a restorer. Is there any publications to look up or do these get sold on ebay or here?

This is GREAT Alex! Just what I need as well to haul my Ausca spider around. Next time you see a red one around for less than 998,000 + L, let me know!
Great pictures and a very interesting article!
Thanks!

Well, not red but significantly less than 998,000:

ALFA-ROMEO Giulietta usata in Vendita Palermo

Perfect basis for a transporter.

Red, a bit more (though a lot less than 998,000) but slightly less suitable despite better condition:

I like the top one because it has the optional SNO parking brake under the LR wheel!

Hi Kroehl,
Thank you for this. Do you have any other web sites or suggestions where else to look. The T10 Romeo certainly is a perfect candidate. I hope to get a reply to my enquiry soon. Gordon, I like that touch of reality too.
Regards
Jim Gordon

Don't you just love stuff like this Jim? One of my BIG reasons for spending so much time on the BB. If you cannot learn something NEW and Valuable every day here on the BB, and NOT just about Alfa's, you are not paying attention!

I think a Fiat might be close enough, don't you? This one is in one of the two fine collections toured in Potlach 2005.

Other than when I think of a 1932 Model B Ford Pickup --I never knew that I needed to have a truck--now it is an Alfa Transporter.

Oh dear.

SNO? It clearly says 'Ricambi Originali' on it. It's a Palermo market option.

Kroehl,
Check the SNO parking brake under the LR wheel of my Giulia Ausca spider. Now that one is my wallet! Also a "Ricambi Originali" option available here in the U.S.!
Are we having fun or what? Lookit how close my old race car is to the one on the transporter! I 'gotta get one!
