A rare sight on our roads nowadays, the replacement for the quirky 75 was built under Fiat’s ownership and heralded a new dawn and direction for Alfa. Rear drive was ditched in favour of a front-wheel drive layout with gains in packaging and cost saving on production.

Built between 1992 and 1998, the 155 came with various engine options, many preferring the 2.0 twin spark as we have here over the 2.5-litre V6. For one year only, in 1995, Alfa offered the ‘wide body’ with flared arches and a wider track with revised steering geometry along with an improvement in quality of the fit and finish.

Finished in classic Alfa red this 155 widebody was supplied new by Evans Halshaw of Gloucester in June 1995. This gem has had just three owners and been in the capable hands of its retired motor engineer for the last few years. He purchased the car out of long-term storage from former Alfa Romeo club chair who owned the car initially through his business before transferring to himself (first and second owner). It has had a recent timing belt fuel pump and water pump change including variator, refurbished brakes and calipers and a host of other little jobs.

The spec includes a rear blind, electric windows, figure hugging sporty seats and original alloy wheels. There are a host of spare parts including a new exhaust system, spare alloy wheel, another set of belts, discs and other bits. The history file includes the V5C, owner’s pack and service booklet showing an impressive 17 stamps up to 90,345 miles in 2001 (currently reading 120,000 miles), invoices for service items, all keys including the important red master key and a current MOT until June 2020 recording just two minor advisories.

The private plate shown is included in this lot.
