What a wonderful car! I know nothing about this car or the time period, but would love to hear about its history...

Best regards,

Gee,

Hmmmm, you don't think the owner would trade for my Spider do ya??

Is this a recent rebody on a 6C 2500 chassis? That remote shifter linkage does not look vintage 1952.

LOL. That thing is quite stunning is it not? If I had the funds to purchase something like that I would last maybe 4 weeks before one of the purist would send a hit man to get me. Because if there were no salt on roads or inclement weather I would have it out all the time :D. I just believe they are meant to be driven, not sitting in a museum ;).

This car is spawning about as many threads on AlfaBB as the Portugal barn find.

Interesting Alfa- I saw it on ebay, and figured it would get some interest on the BB. Thought it would show up on one of the Limited Production threads (as a one off?), but it kind of falls between the cracks, as L.P. goes from 1910-1949, and then picks up 1960-1977- I guess there were no Limited Production Alfas during the fifties! :p
Love the shots of the engine- a real jewel.:D

It's a "bitsa" based on some real 6c2500 components. The body is a poor copy of the Vignale bodied Alfa 412 (8c2900A with 12c37 engine) that ran in the 1951 Mille Miglia.
