Description

Delivered new to North Brede Motors in Perth and sold to Peter Alexander Bell from Bassendean WA, in November 1967, this Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint presents in its original Bianco Antico with black leather interior. It is a lovely driver’s car which has been well looked after by the current owner for 20 years. It is a 4-owner car and comes with its original service books and keys. The 2600 Sprint really defined the executive driver’s car for Alfa Romeo. Built between 1964 and 1967 only 6,999 were made and of those a mere 597 were RHD of which our car is one of these. This larger grand touring coupé could seat four adults in comfort over long journeys at high speeds thanks to the wide power and torque band of the 2584cc six-cylinder engine. With a 5 speed gearbox and all round disc brakes it was perfect to drive long distances at speed and in comfort. The design is the result of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s first major project as head designer for Carrozzeria Bertone, and is arguably one of the most influential designs in the history of automotive styling. Of the 597 RHD cars, very few were sold new in Australia and this is one of those. Its VIN starting in 854 confirms this was a produced for the Australian market and is underlined in the original sales documents which accompany the car. The body of the car is in very good condition and the colour of the paint suits the car setting off the brightwork well. The car has had a recent full body repaint which is of good quality. There is no evidence of rust anywhere on the car and it suggests it has clearly lead a pampered life. The engine and gearbox both perform faultlessly with no issues with the synchro’s. Over the last few years the car has been driven on fair weather days and to ensure it drives well with recent mechanical work done to ensure it runs as expected including the rebuild of its original Solex carbs and braking system. The interior is very good and the leather has been replaced at some point but shows no signs of cracking or loss of colour, unusually the dash and steering wheel is sound without cracking too. The electric windows are in working correctly and the headlining is in superb order and the window chrome is spot on. The interior of this car really is a lovely place to be. The original radio blanking plate accompanies the car too highlighting how original this is. The wheels although not original suit the car well. At some point the ‘2600’ badges and grill have been painted black as have the windscreen wipers, however these can be easily returned to standard. Out on the road this car really is a gentlemen’s express and is incredibly quiet and comfortable to drive as it works through the gears with the 2.6 litre engine providing plenty of ‘go’ whilst delivering an intoxicating engine note. Compared to its contemporaries from Maserati and Ferrari this represents something of a bargain and particularly one that is so original. A wonderful driving Alfa Romeo with a fantastic history.
