Evaluation: Represented as the original engine. Barn find with peeling, dull original paint and dead chrome. The interior is cracked and torn but complete. The engine compartment is remarkably original and complete but dirty and oily, as is the chassis. Rusty underbody with some rust perforation. A complete car stored many years in a not particularly benign garage. Needs everything.
Bottom line: Compared with the rust bucket Alfa 1900C Cabriolet a few lots before, this is a complete car with limited rust—potentially a straightforward restoration project or careful recommissioning to become a Preservation Class entrant. Bidding stalled at 4 minutes and $39,000, then extended and extended to this optimistic result.
