Rest in pieces: 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS by Touring

This car looks like a desperate case but we’ve seen cars in worse conditions than this one and, never forget it, it’s still a 3rd series Super Sprint.

So what we have here is a dismantled car (chassis #10475), maybe because the owner gave up on restoring it. We can understand him because this is a giant task as there is much work to be done and because it takes a lot of study to complete this project.

The seller says that the car is almost complete (including a set of Borrani wheels and a not matching number but correct 1900 engine) with the exception of some parts which are easily sourced. There is some welding to do on the floors (really?) but the whole body looks in good shape. For the braves for sure, but just because of that it can be a job full of satisfactions. Find it for sale at £32,000 (today $54,600) here in Southampton, UK.
