Description

ALFA ROMEO 1750 (1970), CHASSIS N. AR*1755229, ENGINE: 4 CYLINDER, DISPLACEMENT: 1779 CM3, POWER: 118 cv, BODY STYLE: SALOON, RARE 1750 BERLINA IN ORIGINAL CONDITIONS; At the end of the 1960s Alfa Romeo did not have a top level saloon in the range. They decided to launch one, based on the proven Giulia mechanics mounted on a bigger body, designed by Bertone. In January 1968 the 1750 was launched, with a wheelbase of mm. 2570 and a body length which was 25 cm. longer than the Giulia’s. The new car received the name of its glorious (6C) 1750, and the first press launch in 1967 was a tour along the Mille Miglia roads with journalists and old drivers, driving new and old 1750s. This was the first time the Mille Miglia was celebrated on the road, and the start of its renaissance. At the 1969 Turin Show an enhanced version was launched, with double brake circuit, top-hinged pedals, dynamic air intake and a new steering wheel. 1970 saw the highest production of 1750 Berlinas (26.787), which was to be superseded in 1972 by the 2000. It was also the year in which the exceptional car we are offering today was built. This car has been religiously maintained by its two owners and driven a very low mileage. It still has its original plates and ‘libretto’, and the very rare Maintenance Logbook where all the services have been noted and stamped by the Alfa Romeo dealer. Today, the car is fully functional and has just gone through a check and service. This is indeed a unique opportunity of purchasing such a rare and original 1750. The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.
