For Sale

Thinning my collections of Alfa Romeo and Italian car memorabilia and books of  items that I don't want or need. Mostly car related, collected in my travels around the world. I'll add more stuff over time, as I inventory books, magazines, programs, etc. I have in storage.

 




ALFA BAT Collection - Donated to the Blackhawk Museum in 2016 To Join The Original BATs

1/43 Models By Peter Radcliffe at Merrymeet Models
In 1992, I was at the Paris Auto show and managed to see the Factory-restored ALFA B.A.T.s on the Bertone stand. I talked them out of their last poster and a copy of the Bertone 80th Anniversary booklet.

A few years later, I met famous auto designer and artist John Francis Marsh at Pebble Beach and arranged to order a set of giclee prints  (#3 of 50) of his series of paintings of the BATs done for Automobile magazine.

On a trip when I went to the AROC meeting at the Beaulieu motor museum, I met a well-known British (Peter Radcliffe of Merrymeet Models) model maker who had a 1/43 model of one of the BATs. I commissioned him to make me a full set.

In the meantime, I collected photos of the BATs from the web, saw all 3 again at the Art Center Concours in 2007 (photo right) and Gary Kaberle's BAT 11(On the AFLA 8C chassis) at the 2008 LA Autoshow (picked up a copy of the PR packet later.) 

Anyway, it's time to divest myself of all this! I'll consider offers around $1500 for the lot.

Note: Shipping will be in several boxes. The poster is large and needs a single box. The three paintings will probably go in another box. I have the original boxes for the models and they will probably ship in a box with the literature and a CD of pictures and clippings.
