1949 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Cabriolet

The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 was introduced in 1938 and produced through 1952, albeit on pause during the war years. It retained the 6C 2300's independently sprung suspension but with a Bruno Treviso-redesigned straight six-cylinder engine with an increased cylinder bore by two millimeters. Displacement now measured 2.5 liters, and it also benefitted from an improved cylinder head for enhanced aspiration and increased compression.

This particular example is a Super Sport (or SS) model that was originally purchased by Giorgio Da Lisca fu Bandino (Possidente) on April 15, 1949, and taking delivery at his home in Vago, Verona, Italy. On December 19, 1954, ownership passed to Banchio Michele fu Felice Domenico of Via Carmelitani Scalzi 11, Verona. About five years later, it was sold to Cipriani Giancarlo e Attilio Arvedi of Verona, who kept it for the next fifty-two years. In March 2011, the car was sold to Carmelo Digrandi of Milano before passing to Raoul San Giorgi. It later entered the care of its current owners who embarked on a concours restoration.

The restoration was commissioned to Rare Classics Restorations of Boca Raton, Florida. Work began with a full disassembly and stripping of the body to bare metal, and previous modifications and slight areas of corrosion were mended. The car's drivetrain was disassembled, documented, and rebuilt.

The car was given a Grigio Chiaro Metallic exterior with the bench seat trimmed in dark blue Touranil Vintage Leather. The instruments and amber-hued control knobs are complemented by a light blue, square-weave carpet. There is a dark blue Happich canvas soft-top
