Last of its breed: 1952 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Gran Turismo


This car was the last Alfa Romeo made using chassis and engine of the great 6C series. It was called “berlina” even if it had two doors only.


Of course in 1952 the 6C layout was obsolete but, because of the damage suffered after the WWII bombing, in the early post war period Alfa had scarce resouces to develop a brand new product, which in the end will be the 1900 series.


The seller of this car (chassis 918.128) says that the car was found 15 years ago after a long storage, and indeed he says that it has no rust or corrosion of any kind. The most important thing is that all the interior bits are still with the car: you could spend an entire life trying to source the correct and original ones if they’re missing. The engine is an SS unit but not matching number: at least you have a correct one. For sure, that’s a very good basis for a total restoration. Find it for sale here in the Surrey region, UK, with bidding below $50,000 and reserve not met.
