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,
Webmaster
PLEASE NOTE:
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.
