Alfa Romeo 4x4: books - history, models and technology

A book on Alfa Romeo off-road vehicles? Here are books on the history, types and technology of Alfa Romeo off-road vehicles, including the AR 51 and AR 52.

Alfa Romeo AR 51-AR 52 - Alfa 'Matta' - Le vetture che hanno fatto la storia

On behalf of the Italian Defense Ministry, Alfa Romeo produced in 1951 a utility van, designed by Giuseppe Busso and based on the Alfa 1900. The vehicle was offered in two different versions: the "Military" AR 51 and the "Civilian" AR 52, but the model was nicknamed Alfa "Matta" ("crazy" in Italian).
The book offers a wide range of informations - technical datas and the sporting history of some units (the car also took part to the 1952 Mille Miglia) - as well as a large amount of illustrations which will be absolutely useful for restoring vintage models.

Text in Italian.
