SS Cabriolet
Coachwork: Pininfarina
Chassis #: 915770
Engine #: 928067
Registration #: 434189 PE
Sold for $825,000 at 2018 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
The final variant of Alfa Romeo's 6C engine, the 2500, was introduced in 1938 and remained in production until 1952. The origins of the 6C date back to 1925 as the newly develop twin-cam 6C engine which would power many formidable race cars and refined road-going cars, achieving numerous racing victories, including a 1st and 2nd Place finish at the 1937 Mille Miglia. It also placed 1st at the 1950 Targa Florio, among numerous other victories.

This desirable short-wheelbase chassis features the most powerful SS or Super Sport version of the 2500. This Cabriolet, built on chassis 915770, was ordered by Alberto Segal, who specified that it be painted a custom light blue metallic color with red leather interior. Mr. Segal of Pescara, Italy placed the order on April 22nd of 1949. It was further optioned with a multi-band radio and heavy tool kit. Mr. Segal took delivery in November of 1949 and drove the Alfa Romeo for nearly a decade in Italy.

The car remained in Italy until 1959, when Segal took his car to Los Angeles to use on a four-month sightseeing trip. While driving through Hollywood, the car was spotted by the Hollywood film costumiers Robert Frisbie and Roy Nunnally, and after some negotiations Segal agreed to sell them the car. They showed it at many events in California before embarking on a restoration that they never finished. The work began in the late 1960s but it would remain in partially disassembled condition until the current owner's purchase in 2011. A comprehensive and detailed restoration began in 2014. Upon completion in late 2016, the Alfa Romeo 6C was shown at California concours events, winning several awards including Best in Show in 2017 at the Danville Concours d'Elegance, and Ferndale Concours on Main, and Best in Class in 2018 at the La Jolla Concours d'Elegance.
