This Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Coupe was in controlled storage for over four decades and then given a five-year restoration. It was completed in early October of 1955 and finished in Grigio Biacca (Light Gray) paint and, in January 1956, the car was dispatched to Alfa Romeo's official distributor in Lugano, Switzerland.

By 1959, ownership had passed to René de Forest of Ennetbaden, and within 10 years, the car was consigned to a dealer outside of Zürich. It was acquired by Dick Witteveld of Leiden, Netherlands, and then parked in a climate-controlled garage outside of Amsterdam. In 2010, after being in storage for 41 years, Mr. Witteveld sold the coupe to the current owner, who undertook a five year restoration to factory standards.

In 2017, it was shown at the Concours d'Elegance Paleis Het Loo.

Currently this Alfa Romeo retains its factory-equipped tipo 1308 engine.
