I looked at the 1900 companion and saw chassis nr 2003.

I was intrigued by the taillights. It was the first time I saw this model on tipo 3. They not seems to be originals.

Today, I find on ebay this ad with an original homologation form which presents this kind of vertical taillights.

Presumably these parts have not been selected for production. So it's interesting that the padova car is equipped with them or with something close to them ?

Ciao Chris,
I saw this car in Padova and was fantastic and all original except rear lights.A lot of particular and unique details.There isn't for example push botton on bootlid but a lever near the driver door to open it.
Dashboard has a shape to fit ashtray in the place of mirror.
On dashboard there is a consolle to fit radio because in the normal place of dashboard there is an hole to fit chronoflite.

The rearlights are Fiat 600, the dashboard has been modified below to fit a modern radio and extra knobs added. Where the interior of the doors in vinyl or cloth?

I don't think this car was modified.
There aren't also common Marshall front lights.
And knowing from which collection comes this car I have not many doubts.

The lights on the homologation form were not selected. But they were selected for the early giulietta berlina, if am I right.

For the Righini collection, in the late 80's I had a maserati 3500 GT and was looking for parts. No internet at this time !!

I had contact in Italy with a very nice man. Appointment was made in Modena. I arrived a little late at night, it was already dark. The young man drives me to a large brick building. It was like stables and it was full of cars ! Plenty of Alfa, Porsche, some Ferrari. I don't remember everything, but I know that it's the only time I've seen a 2600 bodied by OSI !!

The next day we went to Maserati plant. The young man had his entrances everywhere. We seen an old notebook where all the manufacturing information related to my 3500 GT was noted ! Everything was handwritten carefully. It was the factory list of cars made. Very interesting book !

After that he showed me a yard where a 3500 ended his days ...

Many years later, I realized that I met the son of Mr Righini. It's still good memories.

Yes! Jaeger Chronoflite.
I know it very well because I found it on my car.
Seem to be a Touring rather than an Alfa Romeo optional.
On this car fit on dashboard while on my car has a cokckpit(semi destroyed) and fit on gearbox cover.
I don't know if ****pit was a Jaeger or a coachbuilder production.
Here mine.

Hi all,

Is it sure that the Jaeger Chronoflite was ment for cars and mounted originally by Touring? The only application that I found on the Net was for airplanes. Was it borrowed from the aviation industry indeed or was it maybe an aftermarket rally gadget like the Tachimedion was?
Does anyone btw ever saw pictures from an Alfa 1900 with the Veglia Tachimedion ( see pictures) , an average speed calculater from the early fifties? ( something like an early Halda speedpilot )
