The 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Turismo Cabriolet (Pinin Farina), chassis no. 0412384 has an adventurous and very representative history of the motor racing and Italian costume, at the turn of the Second World War. It is believed that there are no other 6C Turismo Cabriolet built by Pinin Farina of 1930 (and, therefore, III series) survived.
This car always “lived” in Italy, like many cars in working order, at the end of the war it was converted into a “boxed” truck. It was a typical operation of the period: on one hand, the lack of raw materials and, after the bombing, of the factories themselves, to resume production, weighed. On the other hand, economic resources were lacking, there was a large surplus of resources that the war left un-used and there was a great demand for “practical” vehicles, good for working. Thus, many military vehicles and even luxurious pre-war cars, abandoned by a dissolved ruling class, were available at low cost.
The 6C 1750, chassis no. 0412384 was found in the late 1960s in barn-find conditions. Chassis number and engine number correspond with the historic GO7673 black plate. It still keeps its log book dated November 7th, 1945. From the chronological extract, it is possible to see the wording “ trasformabile” (convertible), which the car originally had. Coach built by Pinin Farina, in the year the bodyshop was established, it is one of the first Pinin Farina bodied cars and it was marked with a first design badge. Who, in the 1960s, bought the car found, asked Luigi Fusi for advice on how to proceed with a thorough restoration. Several were the letters, between the two.
The restoration began in the 1970s by the Bonfanti museum, reconstructing the rear and revising the entire mechanics of the car. The car remained unfinished until 2017 when the restoration was resumed by the current owner. Thanks to the several parts preserved, the original color of the car has been recovered. The car is accompanied by a large number of documentary photographs and letters, from the discovery to its restoration.
The car is perfect, with the recently completed restoration. It is a very rare model, versatile in its use and eligible for the main races for vintage cars, such as the Mille Miglia and in the main elegance competitions.
