In April 1929, Mrs Florence Stiles [wife of F.W. Stiles] went to Milan to collect four 6c 1500 Super Sport Alfa Romeos. All four cars were registered in Milan in her name on 29 April 1929 and brought to England: they are shown in the upper photograph on p. 150 of Angela Cherrett’s above-mentioned book, our subject car being the one on the far right, shown with the legendary Giulio Ramponi at its wheel. One of these four cars [chassis no. 0312873] was acquired by Edgar Fronteras and campaigned by him during 1929 as a „privateer“, with support from Alfa Romeo [British Sales] Ltd.
