This Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Tipo IV Coupe is a highly developed short-chassis Super Sprint late production model. The car was originally fitted with the elegant three-window coupe body by Touring on Milan, which it still wears in modern times. The body style is referred to today as the Tipo IV.
This coupe was sold in Milan on February 26th of 1957. There are few records of its early life, and little is known of its history until the car surfaced decades later in California. Robert Hackman purchased the car at that time and commissioned a complete restoration. Upon completion, the car was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it awarded second place in class devoted to Italian custom coachwork. A short period of time later, the car was sold to a Belgian collector. In 2001, Scott Kilon of New York purchased the car and returned it to the United States. Since that time, it has been shown at several events including Le Belle Macchine d'Italia, AACA National Fall Meet in Hershey, the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, Radnor Hunt Concours, and the New Hope Auto Show.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Az. It was estimated to sell for $150,000 - $180,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $176,000 including buyer's premium.
