Chassis no. 915811; Engine no. 928114. Red over brown leather piped in white. RHD. 2443/110hp, column shift 4-speed, Rudge wire wheels, Excelsior tires, woodrim two-spoke steering wheel.

Evaluation: Represented as matching numbers. Sold new in Rome. Restored in 2016-17. Good older paint and brightwork. Bumpers were accurately replicated and fitted to the car within the past three years. The passenger’s door sticks out very slightly at the bottom. Beautiful interior (especially that steering wheel) with very lightly wrinkled leather. Clean and detailed underneath. Restored to appropriately high standards a while ago and lightly used since.

Bottom Line: This envelope body by Pinin Farina isn’t the most graceful shape to grace a 6C Alfa but it’s still an eye-catching car with an even more beautiful cockpit. It was offered at Mecum’s Monterey auction in 2011 in more aged condition, then had boatloads of money spent on it and sold for $417,500 at Bonhams Greenwich in 2019, presumably to Ponder. He lost a little bit of money on it, then (taking fees into account), but no big deal. This is still reasonable money and for the rest of the sale there were as many strong sales as there were modest ones.
