The 75 was introduced in May 1985 to replace the Giulietta (with which it shared many components), and was named to celebrate Alfa’s 75th year of production. The body, designed by head of Alfa Romeo Centro Stile Ermanno Cressoni, was styled in a striking wedge shape, tapering at the front with square headlights and a matching grille (similar features were applied to the Cressoni-designed 33).
At the 1986 Turin Auto Salon, a prototype 75 estate was to be seen, an attractive forerunner of the later 156 Sportwagon. This version was, however, never listed for sale, being cancelled after Fiat took control of Alfa Romeo. The car, dubbed the 75 Turbo Wagon, was made by Italian coachbuilder Rayton Fissore using a 75 Turbo as the basis. Two estate versions were to be found at the later 1987 Geneva Motor Show; one was this Turbo Wagon and the other was a 2.0-litre version named the Sportwagon.
This lovely Alfa Romeo presented in blue with beige interior is in good original condition and has had a new clutch and interior has been renewed. Its odometer is showing 20,000 kms. It is powered by the lively 4 cylinder 1800cc engine which enjoys high revs like most Alfa Romeos. A great example of these popular saloons. At no reserve, surely one to acquire.
