1952 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Villa d'Este LWB Cabriolet

  • Coachwork by Touring
  • Chassis Number: 918100
  • Engine Number: 928314
There were 36 examples of the 6C2500 Villa d'Este produced, and four cabriolets were built on the long, 118-inch wheelbase. This example is one of those rare examples and is a second-series model. Jakes Radford of Abilene, Texas purchased the car in Europe in 1952 and had it brought back to the US. The car would pass through a series of owners in California, including William Kesling, Lesley VonNordheim and David Skora. By this point in history, it had been painted several times during the 1960s and 1970s. When it was purchased in 1997, it was treated to a professional restoration. The car was finished in silver, with blue leather interior and navy blue canvas soft top.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, CA. It had an estimated value of $650,000-$850,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had failed to find a buyer willing to satisfy its reserve. The car would leave the auction unsold.
