1963 Innocenti 1100S Spider

Description

Innocenti was an Italian machinery works originally established by Ferdinando Innocenti in 1920. After World War II, the company was famous for many years for Lambretta scooters and from 1961 to 1976, Innocenti built, under licence, the Mini with 998cc and 1,275cc engines.

At the November 1960 Turin Motor Show, the 950 Spider was presented. Styled by Ghia and produced by OSI near Milan, the style was classical of the era with rear-wheel drive and aesthetically, with small rear fins; the formula of a small car with a small engine and small price tag would meet the demand of the Italian public. From 1963, the car was equipped with a new engine with increased capacity up to 1098cc, designated ‘S’ which also offered small aesthetic changes and the adoption of disc brakes.

This fantastic little car is believed to be one of only two in the UK and one of only 2,000 made. It is the later ‘S’ model with the bigger engine, twin carburetors and disc brakes. This car was imported to the UK in 2015 from Rome and has had four owners; it is now registered in the UK with an MoT test certificate valid for a year.

The owner believes it underwent a major mechanical rebuild in 2010 and has had a new fuel tank. With the running gear of the Austin-Healey Mk. II Sprite underpinning the car, parts and knowhow are cheap and readily available, thus ensuring this hugely desirable and rare Italian sports car can offer enjoyment for years to come.
