owner: Alfa Romeo British Sales | country: United Kingdom

owner's details:
The first official importer of Alfa Romeo in United Kingdom (owner F.W. Stiles).




note:
Car colour: Shell Granite. Change rated 23,8 - 6 cylinder, 80 mm (1925, May 14). Englishman F.W. Stiles decided to extend his holiday and travelled to Milan to visit the Alfa Romeo factory. After being welcomed by company owner Nicola Romeo, Stiles was offered the sole agency for Alfa Romeo in Great Britain. He also bought this“rather special” 22/90 RLTF, in chassis form without equipment. Recalled Stiles: “This car had a radiator lower and narrower than that of the standard cars, a Hele-Shaw steel multi-plate clutch and a lightened chassis, while the engine, of standard dimensions, had a specially balanced seven-bearing crankshaft and raised compression ratio.” Stiles had the car fitted with a light two-seater pointed-tail sports body by A. E. Leadbetter of Marsham Street, London SW1, registering it as “XX 5060” in March 1925. Stiles’s policy was to loan the Alfa to amateur drivers, registering it in their names for a few weeks (as owners) so that they could take part in sporting events.

from
May 1928
to
1932
owner: A. E. Linsley | country: United Kingdom

note:
Partially exchanged for a 1924 Bugatti Type 23 "Brescia modifiée". At that stage it had reverted to the 3.0-litre engine, giving it a top speed just short of 100 mph, with 75 mph available on third. Recalled Linsley: “I kept this car for four years, and enjoyed many thousands of miles of delightful motoring.”


1932
from
1932
to
1936
owner: Rawlings | country: United Kingdom

note:
Exchanged for Bugatti Type 55. Rawlings was a coach proprietor.


1936
from
1936
to
December 1938
owner: Leo E. Flatt | country: United Kingdom

note:
It was by then in a very poor state, with damage to front mudguards, lamps, gearbox and carburettors. Spares being unobtainable, Flatt bought a 22/90 saloon as a donor car. He replaced the close-ratio gearbox of the TF car with the standard ‘box of the saloon, regretting the loss of the racer’s close-ratio third speed. He also replaced the triple-diffuser Zenith carburettors with twin 52mm SUs. Flatt fitted new front mudguards and lamps and replaced the split wooden dash with a cast aluminium instrument panel. He believed that the safe rev limit was the same – 3,600 rpm – as on the standard four-bearing engine until a letter from an Alfa Romeo works driver informed him that the seven-bearing engine could safely be taken up to 5,000 rpm. Wellbase wheels were another modification, 5.25x21 in the front and 6.00x21 at the rear, with a pair of 6.00x18 rear wheels in reserve for sprints. He drove it at Brooklands “for amusement” on a non-race day in company with special builder R.A. Waddy, completing several flying laps at 110 mph by hand timing.

1944
from
18th January 1944
to
21st February 1945
owner: Alfred Clarence Wincop | country: United Kingdom

note:
Car colour: Cellulose Red. Alfred “Twink” Whincop and his wife Monica were great vintage enthusiasts and close friends of Bill Boddy of Motor Sport, who had shared many motoring adventures in search of ancient and interesting cars with them before the war. In June 1943, Bill Boddy reported that “The Whincops have added the ‘22/90’ Alfa-Romeo two-seater which we recently mentioned to their stable”.

note:
Early in 1950 someone tipped off that great motoring connoisseur Michael Crowley-Milling of Alderley Edge in Cheshire that Walter Allan planned to convert the historic Alfa into “the fastest shooting brake in the country”. Crowley-Milling hastened to Hull, where he managed to persuade Allan to give him the car in exchange for a Talbot 105 shooting brake. The Alfa’s body, not too badly damaged, was rescued from the scrap heap, and car, body and several tea-chests of assorted parts were taken to Knutsford, where Crowley-Milling had garage space, and a five-year restoration began.
