Eric Harrison and myself have been maintaining details of 2600 / 2000 for a number of years, primarily with getting the details of European cars correct, mainly with thanks to both the German and Swiss 2600 clubs.

I have now added the registration form to the files section of the 2600 newsgroup http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/alfa2600 and if you would like your car adding to the register please download the form, complete it and send it back to me.

I will then add the details to the register.

Obviously as some of this data is personal to the individual no details will be published or shared with any agencies outside the register. The registers prime purpose is to track details of cars and owners which may assist future owners tracking previous history of their cars.

In the event that you have a 2600 / 2000 or are thinking of buying if you send the register the chassis details of the car in question we will search the register for any history we have. This data will become more useful the more cars that are registered.

Many thanks

Dear Sir,

I am the current proud owner of Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint (type AR00601) chassis nr AR820392 engine nr AR00601*00387*.
I understand this car was previously owned and restored by Mr Hans Dall from Denmark.
Do you have any information about earlier ownership?

Thanking you for your attention, kind regards,

Hi Claude, welcome to AlfaBB!

The only listing I could find of AR820392 was in the last version of Tom & Dale Zat's register with last (and possibly only) contact in 1993, when the car belonged to someone by the name of Knudsen in Praestoe, Denmark. The address listed in the paper copy of this register now seems to belong to a glass art company. Chances are that the name Knudsen belonged to someone affiliated with this plastics manufacturer.

Dear Andrew,

I try to contact the mentionned web site with no success.

So I bought my 64' coupé 2600 sprint in 2005. The car slept in a castle since 1993. The car registration document gave the owner's profession, he was student!

I would like to know if you have got some info about my car.

The number's chassis is 825001 and the motor AR00601*07079.

King regards

Laurent

Hello,

As an owner of various Alfa Roméo, I’m looking for some informations about those cars, and in particular the original motor number and original color of some of my Alfa.

Especially, for : 2000 Touring Spyder – body 10204 01413
2000 TourignSpyder – body 10204 02484
And for 2600 Touring Spyder – body 10601 - 192723

Can you help me or give me some email address where I can obtain those informations.

Thanks in advance
Regards
Michel

Michel,

While I can understand the curiosity of knowing the original engine of a rare, collectible car, I hope no one will provide this information to you.

It is possible to purchase, for a small fee, the services of the FCA “Centro Documentizone”. You can provide them the car’s serial number, and serial number of any engine(s) you may have. They will confirm or deny if this number was original to your car. Regardless of externally provided info, it is likely the Centro information would be considered definitive.

The problem with any other source of the engine number is that his information can then be used to falsify the serial number on a non-original engine in order to enhance the market value of your car.

I am not claiming this is your intent. I am simply suggesting that we should all participate in protecting both the real and perceived legitimacy of our cars. There are already many problems within the Alfa world, so we should do our best to keep it from getting worse.

Michel,

I forgot to mention, Centro can provide the date of manufacture, original exterior color, usually the interior color, and the first point of delivery. Sometimes their files are incomplete on one or more of these elements, however.

I agree with Don on both points (regarding FCA archive being the best source and fake engine numbers).
