This 1955 1900 SS Alfa Romeo has one-off coachwork by Ghia Aigle of Switzerland. It was produced for and shown at the 1955 Geneva Show.
During the 1980s, S/N 01959 underwent a restoration by its then-owner, Pierre Le Grand. The car then passed into the hands of Claud Fresard and was featured prominently in the 'Musee de'Automobile Muriaux' near Saignelegier, Switzerland. The collection had a strong tendency towards vehicles with a Swiss coach-built history
The car is powered by a twin-overhead-cam, in-line 4-cylinder, 1,975 cc engine developing 115 horsepower couple to a 5-speed manual transmission. The chassis consists of coil-spring suspension, independent in front, worm-and-roller steering and hydraulic drum brakes. The car weighs 2,205 pounds and has a top speed of 112 mph.
The present owner purchased the car from the Swiss Museum.Also photographed at :
