Description

Dante Giacosa, the man who constructed the pre-war 508C and in the post war years the Topolino, 1100T, Fiat 500 and 600 was also behind the 1100B and E which were to become the backbone of Italian transport during the late 40s and 50s. The 1100 B and E, were eventually superseded by the more modern 1100 T, which is the taxi car you see in all the Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren movies of the 50s and is still used and made in Iran and in India.

The vehicle we have today is a van based on a 1100T chassis finished in striking two tone period Abarth livery.

This is perhaps the ultimate historic transporter and perfect if you are campaigning Abarths with space for spare parts and equipment. The owner informs us that it is restored and road legal. The head of the engine was recently refitted. This car  would be a great entry to the Goodwood paddock or any other historic event throughout Europe.
