The Alfa Romeo 105 (and 115) series coupés are a range of cars made by the illustrious Italian manufacturer from 1963 until 1977 with groundbreaking styling features for the era. All models feature the four cylinders, all-light-alloy Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine in various cubic capacities from 1290 cc to 1962 cc, all with two valves per cylinder. All versions of this engine fitted to the 105 series coupés featured twin carburetors. Common to all models was also a 5-speed manual transmission and solid disc brakes on all four wheels. The 105 series coupés featured the GT (Gran Turismo) model description, which was common to all models in one form or another. There were 1,542 AR Tipo 105.44 cars built which relates to LHD cars for the European and Rest of the World markets. This particular model (AR1 365 639), with a very rare sliding roof, was initially registered in Switzerland on the 25th April 1969, before arriving in Germany in 2010 to become part of a famous collection of classic cars. In 2012 it was extensively restored by Alfa Romeo marque specialist Winfried Edelmann in Düsseldorf, Germany. It would eventually receive its current German registration in April 2013 and has been regularly used and maintained ever since. The car is not perfect by any means but, for an older restoration, it’s still in remarkable condition with a nicely balanced combination of restored and original features.
