Description

As one of only 118 Tipo Sport versions with the 105 hp SS engine and Alfa Romeo works body, this gorgeous 6C was delivered to the 52nd Milanese fire fighting corps (extinguishing blazes in style!) in December 1953. How long the Alfa, probably the Fire Chief’s transport, has been in this honourable service is not known. After having “been lost” for a while the car was restored by a Roman collector in the early Nineties. After two more Italian owners, the Alfa Berlina GT was eventually imported into Switzerland by a Swiss enthusiast in 2015. In 2018 the seats were reupholstered and covered in original fabric and the carpets were replaced. In the name of improved reliability, the tank was removed, flushed and an electric fuel pump with external filter were installed in 2019. In the same year the drive shaft was re-bushed, the front suspension checked and lubricated, the engine bonnet was repainted and the complete body sanded and polished. This exceedingly rare Alfa 6C is in very good order with the powerful 2.5 litre engine providing ample power. The last Veteran MOT was completed in October 2018.
