Selling an Alfa Romeo 2600 Berlina
The Alfa Romeo 2600 Berlina sedan would be the first body style released under the new Alfa Romeo 2600 range in 1962. Using the chassis of the previous Alfa Romeo 2000, the Berlina was recognizable by the addition of two headlights in the front grille and by the reduction of the rear fins. For owners, however, the most exciting change was the new six-cylinder engine. This inline-six offered 2,584cc and would give the Alfa Romeo 2600 more than 130hp. Similarly, Sprint and Spider models would reach more than 145hp. A five-speed gearbox, which had been standard on previous Alfa models, would continue to be used and would be paired with a column shift and front bench seat until 1965. From the initial launch in 1962 to the end of production in 1969, it is estimated that approximately 2,038 units of the Berlina variation were produced. It wouldn’t be until 1979 when the Alfa 6 was introduced that Alfa Romeo enthusiasts would have another large saloon car to purchase.
Alfa Romeo 2600 Berlina Seller’s Guide
Unlike the Sprint and Spider variations of the Alfa Romeo 2600, the Berlina was designed and built in-house by Alfa. While the Alfa Romeo 2600 Berlina engines are fairly reliable and robust, potential buyers will certainly expect to perform a pre-purchase inspection to fully understand the overall condition of the classic. Alfas from this era also suffered from head gasket issues. If you have documentation of this repair being performed over the years, which is likely if the car is still running, showing this documentation can be helpful. Another issue that buyers will want to check for is rust. While areas of rust may not deter buyers from purchasing your particular model, you should always take any rust damage into consideration when pricing your classic Alfa for sale.
