hello,
again after a long time an Alfa 2600 project.
this is already my fourth touringspider in restoration.
this car had an incredibly perfect base.
the car has only very very low mileage.
standing much years in a good garage.
I think there should be one of the most original cars in bodystructure.
regards
bernhard

Blue

Bernhard, I must say, the colour is absolutely the best choice for the car, stunning in fact, with a grey interior it will look just like mine, I mean fantastic.... :)

My Ferrari 456 was recently demolished, and I am new to alfas and looking to buy one. I can honestly say this car ( color, design, execution of the restoration etc ) is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Love it.

Touring63, This car is absolutely beautiful! Perfect paint and perfect interior, wow; very well done! I love that deep blue with light leather interior. It would trade well for Ferrari money;-)

Your garage looks like it could support a high rise building above it. Is this a commercial building or standard architecture in Austria?

many thanks for many friendly compliments.
in my opinion, you can get only first class work, when everything is right. keep properly and cleanliness are prerequisite.
paint is mercedes code 904 midnight dark-blue. leather from mercedes nappa-hellios.
i have some touring-spider on restoration of ground in the last years in different colors.
but this is very unusual.
for this 2600 is the first roll out from garage after restoration.
there are still various work done setting.
i think, we start tomorrow the engine.
the dashboard is covered dark blue leather.
to ask for garage.
this is typical, very massiv old austrian building.
it is a very old over 100 years old barn building for cows and horses before.
building was very bad condition before ground up. restored three years of this.
same country-house style is my office with very old traditional furniture.
the next 2600 touring-spider is in progress and become a very special and nice color and leather-combination with wire wheels.
be surprise you
regards

Bernhard that is a beautiful example and I salute your efforts and results.
I am intrigued by that auto lift you are using. Is that a specific brand/model or something you made?

many thanks, this lifter is a special-product of Penz Crane - Holzkrane und Recyclingkrane (Home)
this company mainly builds cranes for timber trucks.
but has the patent on the lifting platform.
this lifter is easy mobile roll on from one place to another with inside wheels with a special system.
or floor sink without the ramp
