It does seem odd that such a habitually careless criminal managed to be in a car for a number of hours and yet didn't leave a single trace.

It's almost as if it were a different person altogether.

Why would someone "obtain" an alibi which they had no idea could be proved for a hold up/murder that started out several hours later anyway?

Then why make the comment that he had "odd-coloured hair" if you don't know that that was the case; indeed, if no one knows what it actually did look like?
