5283 VK Boxtel
This Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS Touring Superleggera is in concours condition and did have only three private owners. The numbers of the car are original.
In 1957, the car was purchased from the Swiss Alfa Romeo dealer Pescio & Graffenried in Lausanne by P. Wenger, an architect from Brique.
The car was delivered in the color Amaranto and an optional rear seat was ordered. The first owner kept the car until his death, then the car went to another resident of the city Brique.
In 2010, with a mileage of 31 809 the engine was overhauled at a cost of 19,609 CHF. The third and last Swiss owner bought the car in 2012 and he let restore the car completely in the period 2014-2015.The original wheels, these are supplied separately, could not be saved and were therefore replaced by new Borrani chrome wire wheels.
This Alfa comes with a lot of documentation, including the "certificate of origin", the original owners manuel, leaflets, the original purchase invoice, historical photographs and the restoration bills.
