1957 Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS 3-Window Coupe by Touring
s/n 1900C10596, engine no. 130810564
Two-Tone Red and Silver with Cream Interior
This beautiful alloy bodied 1900 was completed on the 27th of July 1957 and sold new on the 18th of December 1957 to Hoffman Motor Car Company in New York. Painted from the factory in red, this matching-numbers genuine CSS has been confirmed by Alfa Romeos Automobilismo Storico Centro Documentazione (Historic Automobile Documentation Center). One of 854 examples built, this extremely late production car (the last one built in 1957) features the highly desirable CSS equipment including Borrani wire wheels, 5-speed floor shift gearbox, and twin carburetors.
Between 2012-2013, the car was treated to a comprehensive and documented restoration, from a host of capable vendors and suppliers including Racing Industry Specialists, Bonsall, CA, Re-Originals, AlfaStop, North County Rebuilders, Escondido, CA, Electro Tech Coatings, and Classic Alfa, to name a few. Restoration services included bodywork, paint, interior, chrome, engine rebuild and dyno testing, transmission, clutch, brakes, and engine ancillaries such as the starter and generator. Additionally, brake hydraulic components, brake shoes, hoses, and belts were also replaced. The restoration process included attention to detail throughout the electrical system, fuel system, and suspension components. Once completed the car was sorted mechanically and refined as needed. Under current ownership, the car has been serviced regularly with recently installed Pirelli tires and inner tubes, wheels trued up by Rite-Way Wheels of Walnut Creek, CA, a rebuilt radiator with high efficiency core by Beko of Concord, CA, oil pressure gauge rebuilt by North Hollywood Speedometer, and a new battery. The current owner also built a set of custom brackets to lower the seat height, improving headroom for taller individuals (original brackets are included with the car). After these improvements, the car completed the 2017 California Mille without incident, performing delightfully.
