First debuted at the 1950 Paris Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo 1900 was the companys first car built entirely on a production line. It was also the first time an Alfa Romeo was offered without a separate chassis (the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 was the last), and the first to offer left-hand drive. Presented as a two-door Sprint model, four-door Berlina model, or two-door Cabriolet model, the 1950 Alfa Romeo 1900 boasted a new 1,884cc four-cylinder twin-cam engine. Quick and sporty while giving owners a spacious and sophisticated design, the Alfa Romeo 1900 was dubbed the family car that wins races. Boasting a single Solex carburetor, the 1950 Alfa Romeo 1900s engine output was 90hp with a top speed of 90mph; however, buyers had the option of upgrading to a Weber double-choke carburetor with a special manifold that gave 93hp and a top speed of over 105mph. Like the preceding 6C 2500 models, a column shift was utilized to operate the four-speed manual transmission. Production would continue at Alfa Romeos Milan plant until 1959, with a total of 21,304 Alfa Romeo 1900 models built. It should also be mentioned that the chassis was specifically designed to allow coachbuilders to re-body the 1900, thus notable coachbuilders such as Zagato, Bertone and Touring would release Alfa 1900 models.
One of the most important Buyers Tips for the 1950 Alfa Romeo 1900 that The Beverly Hills Car Club can offer potential buyers, particularly because of the number of model variations under the 1900 range, is to have any potential purchase inspected thoroughly. A third-party, Alfa Romeo specialist is always recommended. During the inspection, youll gain valuable information regarding the cars overall condition, including body and mechanics, as well as its originality. You should also verify engine and chassis numbers against Alfa Romeo records. With more than 21,000 examples produced, parts are relatively available for these models, yet the cost of restoration should be factored into your offer. As one might imagine, Sprint examples are typically more desirable than Berlina Sedan models, while specialty models such as the 1956 Alfa Romeo 1900SS Zagato and 1900C Super Sprint Berlinetta by Touring also command higher values. Ultimately, your personal preference, budget and willingness to take on a restoration project will help steer your buying decisions.
