It was with particular interest that I read of Bill Little’s motoring experiences (MOTOR SPORT, Dec 89 and Jan 90) since I am in the process of restoring the 1939 6C Alfa Romeo 2.5 pictured at the bottom of page 37 of the January issue.
About 15 years ago I acquired this car in a totally dissembled state and began restoration work about a year ago. The enclosed photo show the progress to date. The engine has been totally rebuilt and ran for the first time some weeks ago. Chassis, suspension and brakes are also ready for the road. A serious assault on the coachwork will commence in the very near future.
In all the years that I have had this Alfa I have been unable to identify the coachbuilder positively. With the generous assistance of Peter Marshall of the Alfa Romeo 1900 Register I have come to the conclusion that Fritz E Cie of Worblaufen, Switzerland is the most likely source of the coachwork.
I would, however, be most grateful if any of your readers could provide me with any information on this car’s origin or history prior to the time that it came into Bill Little’s stable.
