Built by Giuseppe Falanga in his Palermo workshop in 1949, this Fiat 1100-based barchetta was the third built and the third supplied to Antonio Di Salvo of Bagheria. The car took the name RAOR from the initials of Mr Falanga’s workshop and race car preparation business, Riparazione Automobilistiche Officine Riunite. With the bodywork constructed in aluminium by Sperandeo, mechanically the barchetta boasted a tuned Fiat 1100 engine with high lift camshaft and followers, large oil sump and specially reinforced cylinder head to cope with a higher compression ratio, a quick-shift four speed gearbox, independent front suspension, a live rear axle with hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers, and hydraulically operated brakes at each corner. All of this was based around a strengthened Fiat 1100B chassis.
