The purpose of this website 
is to foster interest in Alfa Romeo 1900 automobiles, aid in their preservation, and reduce the wrongful application of legitimate 
chassis numbers.

About thIS Website
The opinions expressed on this website are solely those of the webmaster and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of either the International Alfa Romeo 1900 Register or the 1900 Register website. 

Bob Schnittger,
I am simply a 1900 enthusiast, not an Alfa 1900 owner, expert or historian. 

However, Peter Marshall (UK) and Joost Gompels (USA) are all of those things and more, and they welcome your Alfa 1900-related inquiries. Website inquiries, though, should go to me.

Touring Coupe Nomenclature... 
   Is it a Series III or a Tipo 4? Roman numerals or Arabic numbers aside, the 1900 Touring Sprint/Super Sprint coupes are commonly designated Series I, Series II and Series III, for the three obvious generations of these coupes. 
   However, the Series I Touring Sprint came in two varieties, the earlier cars with doors that covered internal rocker panels ("long-door" Sprints), and the later cars with shorter doors that ended above external rocker panels ("short-door" Sprints). 
   Consequently, Peter Marshall, of the International Alfa Romeo 1900 Register, uses the term "Tipo 1" to describe the long-door Series I Touring Sprints and "Tipo 2" to describe the short-door Series I Touring Sprints. 
   Continuing along, then, the Series II Touring Super Sprints become, in Peter's scheme, Tipo 3 and Series III Touring Super Sprints are called Tipo 4.
   This website uses Peter's designations for the Touring Sprint and Super Sprint coupes.

GENUINE SS Zagato *10593* for Sale...
I am posting this simply because rare, original Zagatos don't come up for sale very often. This is the Real Deal, a well-cared for example. Said to be the last Zagato-built SSZ!

105-Series Drivetrain in a Tipo4?!
We just received a few photos of a most unusual conversion...a 105-series 2000 engine and transmission installed in a Tipo4 Super Sprint. One of very few, I am sure.

Replica Brake Scoops Available from Italy
Paolo Galafassi's Classic Vintage Car company is making reproduction front brake scoops for 1900CSS (Super Sprint coupes) and 1900-TI sedans. Contact them for more information.

Driving a 1900C Super Sprint...
Bill Noon at Symbolic International shares his thoughts on why Alfa 1900s, in particular the Tipo3 CSS Super Sprint coupes by Carrozzeria Touring, are so special.

Pinin Farina Coupe a NO-SALE at Padua
Chassis Number *01630* failed to sell at Bonham's first Padua auction on 28 October 2017. Estimate was $410K-$500K. High bid unknown at this time.

Ghia "Razza" Restoration Photos
I recently cam across a collection of photos of what apparently is a recent re-restoration of the odd Ghia "Razza" barchetta, *10098*.

*01846* Boano at 2018 Scottsdale Auction
Fresh from its class win at Pebble Beach, newly-restored *01846* is being offered at No Reserve at RM Sotheby's Scottsdale auction in January, 2018.

1900 Super...Barn Find!
Yes, boys and girls, you can still find old Alfas in a barn. This is *14442*, recently discovered in New England (not by me) and in a pretty decent state of preservation.

This Is a Mobile-Friendly Website!
Did you know that this website works on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets? Some pinching or spreading will be necessary, but it all works reasonably well on mobile devices.

A Cautionary Tale...
Thinking about restoring your Alfa 1900 or other classic, especially if it's your first go at it? You should read about TJ's experience with *10321* first.
