Maybe having a kid on the way makes stationwagons seem really attractive?

This is the Vintage Sports Car Club's April 2005 calendar car. I got it from Tony Carroll. I can't find my notes on the car.

Not as pretty as the Viotti bodied woody, but I certainly wouldn't mind having it.

The photo is from Bridgehampton [USA], 1951, and is by Bob Straub.

Thank you Carter, very interesting picture. I was hoping that something
Unknown, to me, would show up. I know that Castagna produced woodyes, on
Fiat chassis, I have knowledge of 6 diff designs, but a 6C2500 that was
Surprising. And comparing with those Fiats I would gee that this one is
From 1947/48.
In general on the Italian woodyes from this period, there is a tendency
That the design is carried on different chassis, as we se on Viotti, where
We find the same design on Lancia and Fiats and the shoved Alfa 6C2500.
Production quantities. This is a difficult matter as there is diff info,
Regarding souse. The early ones on the 6C2500 has to be produced in a very
Limited number, judged on the picture materiel that is known maybe only 1 or
2 of each.
The 1900 are on the Frua site stated to be a one off, but as there
Is pictures of an updated front design, there must be at lest 2.

The Giulietta Weekendiana from Boneschi, on this, has I not been possible to
Find any indication on productions numbers.

The Giulietta Promiscua by Colli is the productions numbers around 100.
The Gulia Promiscua by Colli is produced in a number around 500, it is with
Some difficulty to state the right numbers, as Colli also produced a package
Of parts, those make it possible to convert a Berlina to Promiscua,
Especially in Holland should there have been a market for these conversion
Sets that also included the interior parts. The Gulia was produced in 2
Versions regarding the rear door. These first, where the rear door ended
Above the rear light, and the second version where the rear light was
Incorporated in the door. The Colli productions of the Giulietta and the
Giulia was primarily produced to the Italian State and the different Police
Departments.
Pavesi Alfa Romeo 1750 Giardinetta was only produced in a limited number
Around 10-20 pieces. Its a petty as I find it very attractive.

The GTV 2000, that is surely one we miss when we se the pictures. There is different opinions whether its really produced, I have one source that states that it is designed by Giugiare, as an alternative to the Lancia Beta.

Alfa Sud was produced in 3757 pieces.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuvo Promiscua Carrozzeria Marazzi. After Carrozzeria
Colli had closed in 1973 Carrozzeria Marazzi took over the production of the
Giulia Promiscua. A strange name Promiscua, I don't have any knowledge in
The Italian language, but I am told that if you change the syllables from an
a to an e, you have a complete different meaning of the word, I don't hope
It is opposite.
Auto Capital an Italian car magazine tried to marketing the idea of a
Station car as a family car, in the beginning of the 80 and they are probably
Behind the construction of the Alfatta, Zagato and the Alfa 90.
The Alfatta is probably only produced in this single example by Marazzi.
The Zagato, a one off, should be hidden I a garage in Rom, so if anyone looking for a rear
Stations car, this is a possibility.
The Alfa 90, produced by Marazzi, was used to Promote Auto Magazines and was exhibited on
Different Auto Shoves at that time, 2 or 3 is produced. One can be seen as a
Daily transport in Milan, where it is parked in a locked place besides an
Alfa 75 Evoluzione and an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Turbo Delta.
The Alfa 90 Giardinetta was close to come in production as an official Alfa
Romeo product, but the capacity in construction department was not
Sufficient, as the prime task was the Alfa Romeo 164.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Folk by Moretti is probably produced in a very
Limited numbered, there is hardly any information to find about it.
The Alfa 33 Sportwagon was designed by Pinin Farina and produced by the same,
I don't have the productions numbers for Alfa 33.
The Alfa 75 Wagon by Rayton Fissore was seen driving round in the productions
Facilities in the 80 I am told by persons that visited the factory at that
Time. The productions numbers is unknown.
The Alfa Romeo 164 had been up for sale lately in the States, it is probably
A one off produced by Tom Zat
The Alfa 155 by Franco Sbarro was a one off.
The Alfa 145 is a car and design that pleased me more and more, I am of the
Opinion that it will a classic. And the bold design of the rear window
Pleases me a lot, a real inspiration from the Touring 6C2300 MM from 1937.
The 156 is has been a daily pleasure for me personally in 50 years and
200000 km.
The 159, nice to se some pictures of it and I think that we haw something to look
Forward to.

So for those, that has brought them selves in a situation, where there I a
Need have an Alfa Romeo Giardinetta, instead of a Spider, or what ever they have been called, there is
Sufficient possibilities to go on hunting, thou they are scarce, of the old
Ones I have only seen the Gulia.
But before you are going to the hunting ground, I would like to propose a suitable
Transportation to the Hospital.

The Zagato built Alfetta station wagon is owned by Gippo Salvetti, a collector close to the Arese museum. I had the occasion to see and photograph it. Well, a curiosity, but no one will make me find it beautiful.

The same Salvetti wrote the book Alfazioso, where his Giulietta Promiscua is featured, among other Alfa oddities.

Hello 2000 Touring Spider

thank you for your informations; but I would like to specify:

- concerning the Giulia Promiscua, promiscua is an adjective which could be translated in english as "mixed", "promiscuous"; in fact it indicates that the car could be used by many people, for general purposes

- the Gt 2000 Veloce SW had unfortunately never been produced, even as prototype. It's possible that Giugiaro designed something, but nothing had been produced

- concerning the Alfetta Quadrifoglio Oro SW Zagato, the car, as well as the 90 2.0 SW Marazzi were built as an idea of Auto Capital magazine's director.
The Alfetta Q.Oro SW had been produced in this single example.Marazzi produced two Alfa 90 SW but only one was finished, the other (which still exist) is only the body.
Today both the Alfetta and the 90 are in the hands of the same Alfa Romeo collector, not in Rome.Somethimes the cars are used.And they are in very good conditions (especially the Alfetta).

- Apparently less than 20 Alfa 75 SW (2.0, 2.5 V6 and Turbo)were produced.
Today Alfa Romeo Museo Storico owns:
Alfa 75 Turbo Wagon (bianco argento met.; I took a picture of this car 10 years ago in Arese)
Alfa 75 2.5 V6 SW (nero met. the pictures I posted; I took the pics last october in Arese)
Alfa 75 2.0 SW

Regards

As far as I am aware, Salvetti's Giulietta Promiscua is the only one left
