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
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).
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
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.

We just received a few photos of a
most unusual conversion...a 105-series

Tipo4 Super Sprint. One of very few, I am
I recently came across a
collection of photos of what seems to be a
relatively recent re-restoration of the odd Ghia
"Razza" barchetta, *10098*.
