Beschreibung

1953 SIATA 208S

S/N BS*518*
Engine No. BS*078*

Red with Tan Leather

Another illustrious recipient of Fiat’s glorious two litre 8V engine, the 208S came from the enthusiastic and capable SIATA (Societa Italian Auto Trasformazioni Accessori) company, which had begun in 1926 producing speed equipment for Fiat automobiles. After the war, the company was producing its own cars, and in 1953, the 208S was introduced, available in both open and closed versions. It was an extraordinarily fine car with sophisticated chassis design (including independent suspension all around) and stunning bodywork to match the all-alloy short-stroke eight V8 engine. Just 37 examples would be built, but the cars have always enjoyed a tremendous following thanks to their combination of so many ideal characteristics.

This particular car was sold to the current owner by Fantasy Junction approximately 14 years ago. It is currently fitted with a Ford 289 Hi-P
