Bernhard, this car would be lucky to find its way to you and your shop! I would suggest that you contact Paul Vidler who photographed the wrecked car on Nov 20, 2014 and ask him if you have not already. Paul Vidler's Page - The Vintage Racing League
He is in Essex in the UK and also on Facebook.

The wheels look like Jaguar wheels but the rest of the car looks authentic.

Nope. One of many "tribute" cars (call them fakes, if you wish -- there are several threads on AlfaBB about them and this one is/was is not a very good example, as LHD is not period correct), may have been built with some 1900 parts or from a wrecked car, but certainly wasn't born this way at the factory.

Yes I have seen a few of these on eBay and some do look better than others. I also have seen the threads here on ABB about them. Perhaps I am not such a purist after all as I would welcome one into my garage. Preferably a left hand drive version since that is what I am familiar with.
The Touring or Pinin Farina 3 window 1900's are my favorites and I once tried to buy a popular red one that Tim G. now has, it was LHD.
Any of the 3 BAT cars would be welcome but BAT 9 would be most welcome!Alfa Romeo 1900 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would prefer a 'tribute' car that 'looks authentic' (with the correct wheels) over a 5 window coupe or a CSS-Z (blasphemy, I know) but that's just me. I'd really like the 1900 with the hood that folds up from each side, down the center line but could not copy & post the photo for some reason. Heck, I'd like to have the wrecked one after Bernhard 'had his way with it'!:)
