Search history to 1900c 01602/ Corto Gara !
Good day Alfa Romeo enthusiasts.
Here is a photo of my rear axle from AR 1900c 01602. I bought the car from Wally Weir in 2018. This car was standing next to 01047 for many years.
In my opinion, the number indicates a Corto Gara rear axle. See photo. History: In the engine cylinders, no pistons were mounted, but the Washington Post of January 16, 1965 soaked clean with oil. I want to say that this car about 1965 came out of circulation. The rear axle was not changed after this time the dirt on the axle mixed with grease from the bolt fastenings point to the first dirt before 1965.
The car was driven from the east coast of America to Dallas, Texas before 1965. In North Carolina, it came off the road and brushed some shrubs while the aluminum body was damaged.
To continue driving, an angle iron was welded in place of the bumper to tow the car.
Later, the owner (name wanted) had the body dismantled.
The car was then sold to Wally Weir, parts went to Pad Braden and Bob Taylor.
Personally, I would be interested in the story of this car in America, and also the mysterious number on the rear axle. All comments welcome.rolf
