Known History

Incredibly Rare and Exciting 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Three Window Touring Coupe with Floor Shift Five-Speed: Mille Miglia Eligible with a Build Date of January 1957

 

This extremely rare 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Three Window Touring Coupe with desirable floor shift five-speed is a highly collectible car and an overall genuine example. Powered by the rare Tipo 1308 engine with twin Solex downdraft carburetors which was used only in the SS model. Retaining what is believed to be its original matching numbers engine, chassis 10306 was born a handsome factory black car and has a build date of Jan 16, 1957 making it a Mille Miglia eligible car. Currently red with black interior, chassis 10306 proudly retains its original Carrozzeria Touring body tag. The nose and tail were lightly modified at some point early in the car's life. This 1900C SS could be used as a presettable driver as-is or taken to the next level with minimal effort. Mechanically sorted, the Alfa starts right up and runs strong, ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next loving owner. It presents itself quite nicely as well with good paint and chrome. It also has a solid undercarriage. The car was previously owned by a northwest car collector and vintage racer who was mechanically minded, and always addressed the needs of his cars. He was a true enthusiast and conscientious car owner who purchased the car from a friend out of Colorado.

 

Alfa Romeo boasted success in the Targa Florio, the Stella Alpina and the Coupe des Alpes, claiming the slogan The Family Car That Wins Races. The combination of Alfa Romeo's mechanical technology and Touring's patented super lightweight process of body construction and aluminum skin, made the 1900C SS one of the most desirable mid-size coupes of its era, and even after more than 60 years from its debut, it is still many connoisseurs' favorite choice for grand turismo type drives and rallies. These elegant coach-built cars are considered to be one of the most versatile and event eligible Italian sports cars in this price range.

 

This Alfa Romeo 1900C SS checks all the boxes when it comes to the soulful hand-made coach work, the epic engineering, and the famous driving experience. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire an event-eligible Touring bodied Alfa Romeo. Spacious accommodations, state of the art engineering, and exciting driving all beautifully converge in this Alfa Romeo 1900C SS - a delightful motoring proposition for its next enthusiastic keeper.
