This Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato

The beautiful Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato offered here complete production on 11th June 1955, before being delivered to its first owner in Milan in early August the same year. As confirmed by a Certificato Di Origine issued by Alfa Romeo Classiche in December 2019, this 1900C SS was originally finished in Rosso (red), just as it is offered here.

As with many high-performance post-war sports cars, this Carrozzeria Zagato-bodied Alfa Romeo quickly found its way to the United States of America and by 1961 was owned by J.C. Edwards. By the 1980’s this 1900C Super Sprint had joined the collection of world-renowned Alfa Romeo enthusiast, Said Marouf. Other cars that formed part of Marouf’s esteemed collection included an Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ1 and TZ2, but perhaps most famously also the 1953 Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 5.

As a result of his incredible car collection, Said Marouf had a wealth of knowledge and experience with Alfa Romeo’s, and only entrusted the very best to work on his cars. Based in Berkley, California, Paolo and Nino Epifani were well-respected restoration experts, having already won many major Concours events, and in the late 1980’s were entrusted to full restore this 1900C SS Berlinetta. Upon completion of this exacting restoration, Marouf entered this car in the world’s most famous Concours, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1990 where the car was awarded 3rd in class.

In 2001, having covered only 2,000 km post-restoration, this 1900C SS Zagato was bought by Paul F.Schouwenburg in Holland who entered the car at many European events. Class victories were awarded at the 2003 Palais Het Loo Concours, and Schwetzingen European Concours before this 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato was invited to the 2005 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

In 2006 the car made another trip across the pond, joining the collection of John D’Alessandro of Southampton, New York, USA. Within this ownership, the car regularly travelled between Europe and the USA. During its time in Europe it was maintained by Cedar Classics in Hampshire, England, and during its time in the States, it was looked after by Northumberland Engineering in New York. In 2007 D’Alessandro entered this Alfa Romeo in the Mille Miglia Storia, wearing race number 304. A year later, in May 2008, a FIVA Identity Card was awarded.

In August 2009, this 1900C SS Berlinetta passed to its most recent owner in America. In 2019, this collection was ranked as the 4th most relevant car collection in the world! Sitting alongside this Alfa Romeo are cars including the magnificent 1930 Mercedes Benz SS Erdmann & Rossi which won Best of Show at the 2001 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta ‘Tour de France’ by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, and a 1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlinetta by Vignale.

Today, this exciting collaboration between two of Italy’s automotive powerhouses is one of the most collectable automotive icons. As one of only 39 examples built, incorporating Carrozzeria Zagato’s iconic design and Alfa Romeo’s competition pedigree, the 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato is a must-have for every discerning collector.
