1958 Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS s/n 1900C10597 Red with Black Leather and Grey Cloth Inserts Having successfully completed the California Mille Miglia at least four times, this car has proven itself as a mechanically robust example ready for long distance touring and historic rallies. It is best described as clean and straight `driver` cosmetically, in excellent mechanical condition. As a late production 1900CSS `Superleggera`, this car has a body constructed entirely from aluminum, is fitted with more aggressive camshafts, and has a 5 speed floor shift. This car was sold new in Vancouver, Canada and has had approximately three owners before being acquired by the current owner in 1991. The car has been in Northern California for much of its life. There are no known issues with the car mechanically; it is ready to enjoy. Raffi Nadjarian completely rebuilt the motor about 8,000 miles ago, slightly fortifying it in the process. The extra horsepower makes this car all the more enjoyable both in modern day traffic and on tours. This example has been repainted several years ago. It makes a strong visual impression, but up close, moderate paint imperfections associated with age and use are apparent. Body panel fit is good, and the doors and hood all latch easily. The chrome and stainless trim is straight throughout, with no significant pitting or deterioration. The car sits on restored and painted aluminum Borrani wire wheels. The interior is complete with all the factory knobs, gauges, and switches in place. The gauges look to have been restored and show minimal fading. The carpets, seats and door upholstery are all representative of a very good driver. The headliner is excellent. The engine compartment is also very complete with correct cast aluminum air box and Solex carburetors. Much detail has been carried out at the time of the engine rebuilt, and while not in `show` condition, the engine compartment is well above driver standards. With the car comes the correct spare wheel and tire, and tool roll with tools.
