Vittorio Jano joined Alfa Romeo in 1923. His first creation at Alfa was the P2, which enjoyed much success on the Grand Prix circuits, and was largely based on Jano's experience with Fiat's Tipo 805 Grand Prix car of 1923.

The Alfa Romeo P2 was followed by a line of passenger cars to succeed the Giuseppe Merosi-designed RL and RM. Merosi's L-head 6- and 4-cylinder cars - by this point in history - had become dated and required a replacement. Jano responded with a 1.5-Litre six-cylinder that set new standards for lightweight high performance motorcars, the 6C 1500. The iron cylinder block and head were each single piece castings. The block mated to a light alloy crankcase. It was initially a single camshaft design; Jano added a twin cam head, designated 'Sport', and used for performance applications. A shaft and bevel gear drive was used for the 6C's cams. In its basic 'Sport' configuration, the 6C 1500 produced 54 horsepower at 4500 RPM. The series eventually grew to 1900 CC and power - with the help of a supercharger - rose to over 85 horsepower.

The chassis was lightweight and low-to-the ground. It was given a semi-elliptical spring setup that passed through the front axle. The 6C 1500 in its naturally aspirated and supercharger versions would go on to claim numerous victories over much larger and more powerful machinery. Among the successful 6C 1500 pilots was Enzo Ferrari who, at the time, was employed by Alfa.

In 1929, Jano's 6C was increased in displacement to 1752cc by increasing both bore and stroke from 62mm x 82mm to 65mm x 88mm.

This 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS 'Super Sport' Two Seater wears coachwork by Touring. It is a 3rd Series 1750 SS that spent over a half-of-century in the Southern Hemisphere where it resided in South Africa in the care of enthusiast Hugh Gearing. It early years included competition in Italy and South Africa.

In the late 1930s, it was sold to a U.K. resident and received the coachwork that it wears today.

In the post-War era, the car was purchased by Hugh Gearing. Gearing continued its racing career, and on one occasion, it was loaned to Juan Manual Fangio to drive at a South African event.

The car has fully valanced front fenders and opening hood vents. Many of the mechanical components are original. The supercharger, however, has been replaced with another correct early version.
