The art of traditional coachbuilding is alive and well at Historic and Vintage Restorations in Melbourne, Australia.
The age of the Italian carrozzeria has all but disappeared with the advent of unibody construction sounding the death knell for custom coachbuilders. The traditional skill of handcrafting sheet metal into beautiful, automotive forms has become a specialist art, practised by very few in an industry that previously flourished and produced some of the most desirable cars ever built.
Fortunately, there are companies like Historic and Vintage Restorations in Melbourne, Australia, who continue to use traditional coachbuilding methods to craft stunning machines like this 1939 Alfa Romeo 6c 2300 MM Spider which started off as nothing more than an original chassis and driveline sourced from Europe.
