O1-02 1949 Plate Special Roadster

In 1949, race driver Luigi Plate built this unique car, based on a prewar Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 engine with a tubular chassis. The car was raced in Italy, sold in 1959, and thereafter damaged in a fire. Now owned by Betty Murphy of Smyrna, Georgia, the car has undergone a restoration and is being shown for the first time since the 1950s.
