A little about the car.


The car was purchased in Italy and imported as a present from Burt Bacharach to Angie Dickinson. She owned the car until 1981 when it was purchased by my family. The car was used as a daily driver for a few months in the 1980s and has been garaged since. The odometer has 15540 original kilometers and is car 00024. The car has always lived in California.

Please enjoy the pictures.

Great! Thank you very much for the much appreciated information and pictures!

Approximately how old these pictures (I'm guessing they may be older given the Citroen in the background)?

I remember when the car was in an Alfa repair shop on either La Brea or La Cienega some 25 years ago!

Those pictures are from the early 80's. I have more recent pictures, but the car was in a little better shape then.


And great memory dretceterini.

I used to see Angie in this Alfa when we both had appointments with the same "masseuse to the Hollywood stars". A very interesting car!

Vignale bodies by style, and more from Vienna

BB member Gerald Berwid in Vienna looks to have brought some organization to the several body styles that Vignale applied to the 2000, and his site is worth a look for that and for other reasons:
www.geraldo.at
Gerald sees four Vignale types based on trim, vents, grills, door handles, front bumpers and headlights among other characteristics. Fifteen chassis numbers are on his list, and there are photos (including Angie Dickinson's 00024?).
Included in what I learned on his site is that Gerald has an 8 mm film of his 2600 Touring in a graphite grey color being picked up at the factory by its initial owner - actually the initial owner's mechanic. No film on the web site, but Gerald has posted a still photo. Amazing.
Gerald has also posted a list of movies that included the 2000/26000 models, with a short description about their appearance. Priceless.
There also is a list of period magazines that reviewed the 2000/2600, and the magazines that rediscovered the two models decades later. And he has listed the minatures - in 1/43, etc - with photos that are or were once available.
Geraldo looks to have put all this fascinating content up in 2008, so many using this BB forum may already know of his work.
While his efforts were a few years ago, Gerald responded to my email last week saying he has even more material!
For anyone who enjoys some 2000/2600 content, his site is very worthwhile.
