Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 B Pescara Berlinetta – 1937

This beautifully restored Alfa Romeo was first presented at the 1937 Salone dell’Automobile in Milan and is believed to be unique with its elegantly streamlined berlinetta coachwork by Pinin Farina, which combines Art Deco elements with a sleek and aerodynamic profile, incorporating a small fin at the rear.
Its history after the cessation of hostilities is quite remarkable, as it is believed to have been campaigned in the 1949 edition of the ‘Coppa delle Dolomiti’ and Bolzano-Mendola hill climb before being transformed in a pickup truck in 1954. At this time the original engine was replaced with an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 single-carburettor unit, converted to run on methane gas! Luckily though, the forward part of the original body had been retained together with the rear wings, which were still on the car when it was rediscovered in 1992.

The Alfa changed hands a couple of times subsequently but its restoration was not started until 2002 when the late owner, a well known Alfa Romeo 6C enthusiast, purchased ‘813.812’ and commissioned Italian experts Quality Cars of Padua to undertake a thorough restoration to bring the car back to its former glory. The whole body was restored, the ash frame renewed and the missing streamlined rear section painstakingly reconstructed. At the same time a correct 2300 engine was sourced and rebuilt by another Italian specialist, Corrado Patella of Officina Omega in the nearby Vicenza province of Italy. The electrics were entrusted to Franco Rodighiero of Elettrauto Franco, again in the Vicenza province. The restoration spanned some three years and was finally finished in 2006. A detailed photographic record of the restoration comes with the car.
