Finally, confirmation that one of the 1961 Sebring Alpines remained in Florida during the early 60's. Through word-of-mouth I was fairly sure that it stayed in Flordia (contrary to some of the history books which said they were shipped back to the UK)

I found an ad in a May 24th, 1962 Competition Press placed by Ralph Noseda. Full decription of the car and he was selling it for 2800.00. Ralph lived in the Miami area (East Perrin)

So, where is it? Surely, someone in Florida will luck into it :smile:

BTW< it would be Light blue - possibly LHD or RHD. Fuel filler pipe coming up through the top of the right rear fender.

I did a google search on Ralph Noseda, and given his history, I would say he would be quite aware of the value of that car IF he is still around and if he still has it!!

For some reason I think Ralph Noseda has passed-away. I think I had looked him up a couple of years ago trying to verify if he had the car.

Ironically, I could never confirm it until I saw the ad in an old competition press last week.

Given it was in Southern FL I would bet, if it still exist, it is still down there. It really would be a cool Alpine to find... none of the 1961 team cars have been.
