Ultra Rare 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900C Cabriolet with Coachwork by Pinin Farina and Matching Numbers: One of 88 Produced

This 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900C Cabriolet with Coachwork by Pinin Farina is one of just 88 Cabriolets built on the 1900C platform. These limited production Cabriolets possessed elegant lines, attractive proportions, fine detailing, and superb build quality. In terms of overall design, the Cabriolets built by Pinin Farina for Alfa Romeo were quite similar to those fitted to Lancia, Fiat, and Ferrari chassis of the same period. Chassis 01063 is a truly remarkable discovery – a rare coachbuilt Alfa Romeo that has spent the past three decades hidden in a New Hampshire garage. The ideal restoration candidate that's been under the same ownership for the last 55 years. Eligible for Numerous Driving Events and Exclusive Concours d’Elegance.  

The first recorded owner of this Pinin Farina Cabriolet was Leroy Bell Jr., a US Army Sergeant stationed at the 7th Evacuation Hospital in Darmstadt, Germany. In September 1964, he sold the Alfa Romeo to Barbara Urbielonis, a teacher working at the base’s American Elementary School. Records on file indicate that at the time of her purchase, the Cabriolet was painted blue and had already accrued nearly 90, 000 km. Over the next two years, Ms. Urbielonis had Auto-Friedrich, the local Alfa Romeo agent in Frankfurt, maintain the 1900C. When returning home to New Hampshire in 1966, she brought the prized Pinin Farina Cabriolet with her. Back in the US, the Alfa Romeo was driven occasionally until 1983, when it was finally parked in her home garage.

Today, the unrestored 1900C shows 98, 615 km on the odometer – about 10, 000 km more than it had in the mid-1960s. Although the Cabriolet is in need of a comprehensive restoration, the distinctive Pinin Farina bodywork – now finished in off-white with red upholstery – remains largely intact, with most of its important components and trim in place. Notably, this 1900C retains its original and highly sought-after tipo 1308 engine, as well as its original US Forces in Germany registration plate and more recent New Hampshire vanity plates – complete with matching key chain tag. In addition to these notable features, this Alfa Romeo is offered with a file of records dating from its time in Germany, including paperwork relating to insurance, registration, and mechanical repairs. Just out of 56 year ownership, this unrestored Alfa Romeo is a most exciting find.
