The Alfa Romeo F12, produced by the Italian automaker from the mid-1960s through the early 1980s, holds a significant place in the brand's history as a compact commercial vehicle. Boasting a cab-over-engine design, it was engineered to optimize cargo space and versatility, making it a preferred choice for various business applications, from urban deliveries to short-haul transportation. Beneath the rugged exterior, the F12 offered a range of engine options, including the four-cylinder 1290cc Nord Twin-cam, as well as diesel powerplants, which struck a balance between fuel efficiency and performance. Its robust construction, coupled with Alfa Romeo's renowned engineering expertise, ensured durability and reliability, cementing its reputation as a dependable workhorse in the commercial vehicle market. The Alfa Romeo F12, though eventually succeeded by newer models, left an indelible mark as a practical and technically sound commercial vehicle. Its cab-over-engine configuration, efficient engine choices, and enduring build quality contributed to its historical significance, making vintage F12 models highly sought after by automotive enthusiasts and collectors today.
First manufactured by Ebro in Spain in 1972, this wonderful F12 (F108) is presented in the perfect 'Alfa' combination of Red with matching Red interior. Purchased by the vendor and registered in February 2020, 'EKH 514K' was subject to extensive restoration by the vendor. The car features Aermacchi, Troconi & Novelli, and Lawton & Wilson signwriting, which was applied specifically to transport the vendor's motorcycles to Goodwood Revival, but due to Covid, it never happened. Now the van is offered for sale to help raise funds for a larger Rolls-Royce, with it recently subject to replacement front and rear flexible brake lines with replacement cylinders, as well as a replacement master cylinder in August 2023. Further recent works also include replacement tyres, hub caps, drive shafts, all suspension and steering bushes, rod ends, some wiring, the seats re-upholstered by Aldridge Trimming, front carpets and a new battery. Overall, a vehicle rarely offered for sale, this presents an incredibly rare and exciting opportunity.
Please note: The motorcycles are not included as part of the sale, but may be available by separate negotiation.
