Classic Car Auctions says:

One of Alfa's most desirable cars - a stalled restoration project...

  • Built by Carrozzeria Touring, the six-cylinder, DOHC, 2600 was Alfa's flagship
  • The body (RHD) is in primer and appears to have been prepared to a good standard
  • Our understanding is that the engine was running before being removed
  • The rolling shell looks fine and we would love to say you are half way there, but it's an Alfa
  • The Dream; A sparkling little Red Alfa Spider outside your favourite cafe on a warm summer's evening
  • The Reality; You're at the Restoration Show for a reason. Forget reality and concentrate on the Dream

Vehicle History

Remarks

This RHD Alfa was bought by the vendor in 2010 as a restoration project. It was entrusted to a very experienced panel man, with a passion and extensive knowledge of Italian cars.
The car was to be returned to the vendor as completely restored, turnkey car within 2 years.
During the time he had it the restorer was sent stage payments but due to failing health the car was never completed. I was asked to collect the car in 2016 and have stored it ever since. Despite various discussions with the vendor regarding completing the work, our commitment to other projects has meant the project has not progressed. He has now decided to sell the car and concentrate on other cars in his collection.
The body appears to have been prepared to a very reasonable standard, our understanding is the engine was running before being removed but we cannot verify how good the unit is, and some of the trim has been lost over the years.
