Alfa Romeo History

1934 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300

Chassis number : 2311239

Share on:

Completed in early 1934, this 8C 2300 was delivered as a rolling chassis to Joseph Figoni's Paris workshop. There, an elegant cabriolet body was created. The car was purchased by Raoul Calvayrac, who managed to hide the car on his estate, during the German occupation. In the early 1950's, the Figoni Cabriolet was brought stateside and eventually sold to Ohioan, Jim Ibold. He cherished the car for over four decades, and for most of those years, it shared a garage with his 8C 2900. Ibold preserved the Alfa Romeos and only replaced parts when it was strictly necessary.

Patrick Ottis purchased the car from Mr. Ibold and worked diligently to maintain its originality until it was sold to the current owner.
