Alfa Romeo 6C1500 and 6C1750 chassis numbers
Um ... Er ... How do I say this ....
I keep a registry of Alfa Romeo 6C cars! I published a reasonable listing in 1994 in the (unfortunately "latest" published) edition of The Italian Car Registry. Perhaps I should scan those pages and post them here somewhere?
Angela Cherrett keeps a listing as well. One day, I hope that we might combine resources. There probably are others who keep their own private lists.
Generally, my studies and list-sharing work like this. It all started as an informal information exchange and that is what I continue to try to do. If you own (or owned) an interesting low-production Italian car (not just AR6C) and share the information that you have learned as a result of that ownership, then I will share a portion of my listing that covers that car and probably some other cars similar to it. If you do not own a car, but share information that you have come across, I will also probably share a listing with you. It might not be the same listing that I might edit for an owner as I might get the impression that your interests are a bit different. If you have shared information about a number of other cars, not necessarily just AR6C in this case, then you might feel perfectly free to ask about one anyway and I might just agree. I try not to take all of this study too seriously. A lot can be learned gathering information a piece at a time ... with patience. It is most important that we find a way to share. I have shared the entire listing of collected data on AR6C 1500/1750 cars (more than 500 cars identified to some degree by chassis number ... which is not to say that they all exist) with only a couple of trusted insiders. You can certainly get part of it if you share but it will take a long time and a lot of shared data before I will be sure that we are on the same page as far as our concepts of what makes "history" and what kind of data is a bit "sensitive" and should be withheld (at times) from publication or general sharing out of a sense of privacy or because the information may be easily abused.
If you scroll down to posting #99, you will find a listing of cars. You will also find the data form that I use to help describe each car when I get to see one and "look up its skirt", so to speak. The form had 288 views as of February 26, 2011 when it was removed from this posting. Anybody wish to guess how many have been sent to me as a result it being posted here, in posting #19 as well as in another thread?
Update 6 March 2011:
The "latest-greatest" listing and data-form are now found under posting #99 but this posting and posting #19 continue to serve as part of the introduction to the listing.
