Description

As one of only 118 vehicles of the Tipo Sport with 105 HP Super Sport engine and Alfa Romeo factory bodywork, this magnificent 6C was handed over to the 52nd Corps of the Milan Fire Brigade in December 1953. How long the Alfa Romeo, probably as command vehicle, was in the service of the fire brigade cannot be determined. After the car was "lost" for some time, it was probably restored in the early nineties by a collector from Rome. After two other Italian owners the Berlina GT was imported by a Swiss enthusiast in 2015. In 2018 the seats were reupholstered and covered with original fabric, at the same time the carpets were replaced. For the sake of reliability, the fuel tank was removed and rinsed in April 2019 and an electric fuel pump with external filter was installed. In October 2019, the propshafts received new bushings, the front axle was checked and lubricated, the bonnet was repainted and the entire car was smoothened and polished. This extremely rare Alfa Romeo 6C is in very good condition and the powerful 2.5 litre engine runs perfectly. The last Swiss MOT including veteran status was performed in October 2018.
