In 1954 Alfa Romeo decided the time was right to introduce a small utility vehicle to their lineup by way of the Autotutto (All-Purpose). Built in three series through 1967, the vehicle’s versatile platform was offered in multiple body configurations depending on the intended use. With independent suspension on all four corners and a front-drive layout, the Autotutto could easily adapt itself to truck, van, and commercial uses.

The charming Romeo 2 Autotutto Minibus offered here is presented in a Scuderia-inspired paint scheme complemented by Dark Blue upholstery with white pipping, and fitted with the optional 1,300 cc twin-cam gasoline engine. Visual treasures abound on this Autotutto, from the Marchal head and fog lamps and “Romeo” stamped door panels to the timeless Alfa Romeo grille shape outlined on the speedometer. This striking Alfa Romeo has been housed in a prominent Southern California collection since 2016 and is reported to draw a crowd of admirers at every outing.

Included with the sale are an owner’s manual, sales brochure, ladder, jack, spare tire, and a copy of the Italian Libretto. Whether you are planning on stealing the show at the local cars and coffee or you want a stylish people or parts hauler for your vintage race team, this Autotutto is sure to bring many smiles per mile.
