Not Every Day: ’64 Alfa-Romeo 2600 Sprint
You Alfisti out there are in for a real treat. A nice 2600 Sprint has finally come to market. Okay, so this model isn’t everyone’s favorite but it sure is nice and rare. Rare at least, in this condition. A little background. Alfa’s attempt at a facelift for the aging 2000 Series was not well received. The Sedan or “Berlina” model was ungainly and ill-handling. The Spider, a derivative of the Giulia, didn’t translate as well in the larger form to accommodate the inline 6-cylinder. But the Coupe – the Coupe was a beauty. Another successful Giugiaro design from the house of Bertone. The inline 6 is a great engine and in the Coupe package, it worked well as a GT car. It was fast and comfortable for 4 people. Today’s featured car is said to have 42,000 miles and has been treated to a $15,000 paint. The sellers obviously didn’t do it because they would know the color is Pino Verde and not British Green. The interior looks like Wild Boar Skai and that is a vinyl material – one of my favorite color combinations on a Bertone GT. There isn’t much more information to be had so a conversation with the seller and a quick PPI is in order. See it by clicking here.
