This 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900C is one of approximately 100 coupes built with Pinin Farina coachwork between 1952 and 1953. Chassis 01598 was one of three right-hand-drive examples delivered new to UK dealer Thompson and Taylor Ltd. The car was sold in the late 1970s by Brian Classic & Co. in the UK to an owner in Canada, where it was sold to its next owner in 1987 before being acquired by California collector Said Marouf. In 1990 it was sold to another California owner, who commissioned a two-year restoration that included fitting a replacement 1,975cc Tipo 1308 inline-four with twin Solex carburetors.

After spending time in Vermont and Kansas City, the car remained with a single owner in North Carolina from 1996 through 2019, and during that time garnered awards at Amelia Island and Radnor Hunt, among other concours events. It was acquired in 2019 by the seller, who has since had the carburetors retuned and the throttle linkage adjusted. Mechanical updates include Pertronix electronic ignition and an in-line electric fuel pump. This Alfa 1900C is now offered with owner’s manuals, removed parts, magazine clippings from its show participation, photos from the 1990s restoration, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
