ODOMETER
1954 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Coupe by Touring

The Alfa Romeo 1900 was not merely the company’s first all-new design produced in the wake of World War II: With their forward-looking styling and unibody construction, the 1900 and its high-performance evolutions—like this 1954 1900C SS—represent a pivotal step into the modern era of automotive engineering for the acclaimed Italian operation. This example, chassis number 01678, wears bodywork by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan. One of several Italian firms to provide bodies for the 1900, Touring pioneered the legendary lightweight “Superleggera” construction system; fittingly, carrozzeria’s name and logo are proudly and prominently displayed on badging found around the car. Completed on 22 March 1954, it was first sold on 9 July 1954 in Lugano, Switzerland. The car’s SS, or “Super Sprint,” model designation refers to its high-performance Tipo 1308 dual-overhead cam 2.0-liter inline-four powerplant. It retains its original engine, number 00792, according to the records of Alfa Romeo. With its enlarged displacement and twin Solex carburetors, the Tipo 1308 improved upon the base 1900’s already respectable performance; its 115-hp stated output was enough to propel the lightweight car to a reported top speed of 118 mph. It is paired here with a five-speed manual transmission with column shift. This car benefits from recent restoration work, undertaken by Rome-based firm RizzaClassic, that returned the car to its original configuration and appearance—including the factory-correct Verde Ortica exterior paint color. This attractive dark metallic green is complimented by an interior re-created to original patterns using period-appropriate materials—in this case, tan leather and cloth with tan wool carpets. Chrome and other brightwork was refinished as well, again to a very high standard. Borrani wire wheels, here fastened with two-ear knock-offs emblazoned with the Alfa Romeo script, perfectly compliment the car’s sporting nature. Equal attention has been paid to the 1900C SS’ mechanicals, with original-style hoses, clamps and hardware used throughout the engine bay. The car is equipped with a stainless steel exhaust system. With an odometer showing just 1,608 km (~1,000 miles) since its restoration, this 1954 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS by Touring is an excellent candidate for show—though it has also been mechanically prepared for, and is eligible for entry in, prestigious vintage rallies and tours, including the Mille Miglia. The car is accompanied by historical files, photographic documentation of its restoration, records detailing recent maintenance, and historical research from Alfa Romeo and FCA.
