Restorations

Currently we are restoring one 1956 Alfa 1900 CSS, an Alfa Sprint Speciale, a Fissore bodied OSCA,  and cleaning and refreshing a low milage Alfa spider veloce. We have listed some photos of the restoration process and also some photos of previous restorations.  We own what we restore and are always looking for interesting projects.

1965 Sprint Speciale

This 1965 Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale was in a warehouse in Concord, CA on jack stands since 1975 when we purchased it. We  started by dismantling the entire car and photographing the process in detail because the car had never been apart before and we wanted a good record of how it was built from the factory. Since the car had very little rust or damage, we sanded and stripped the unibody down to the bare metal on a rotisserie to allow us to get to every part of the body. Then after making all repairs we prepared the body for paint and painted with PPG Omni Line base coat black and PPG Glamour Line clear, color sanded and buffed.

 

1956 Alfa 1900CSS

This Alfa was mostly complete but not running when we started. We dismantled the entire car and removed the aluminum body so we could address the chassis. Once we removed the paint from the body we decided to build a new nose and both front fenders rather than try to work with the original aluminum skin. A wood buck was made using measurements from another original 1900 and the new front sheet metal was formed. We also did a full restoration of the engine and entire driveline, All glass is new, chrome refinished, new rubber, and new interior. We pre-fit the drive line and engine along with all the trim and bumpers while the car is in primer so we don’t have to work around a freshly painted body. The next step is to finish the paint work then do final assembly.
