Description

Chassis no. 1495*05681
Engine no. 1315.44693 Registered in June 1959 in Palermo, is an example of the important Type 750D version with a short wheelbase.
On 30 April, 1961, it took part in the 45th Targa Florio (GT 1.3 class), which was raced at the “Piccole Madonie” circuit. The 1.3, racing for the Nissena team, competed as number 22 with Mario Tropia and Giuseppe Parla at the wheel (DNF).
Six owners from new.
It wears black license plates dating back to June 1967.
Most probably still equipped with its original engine, as the vehicle and engine production lots match. The engine was produced at the end of 1958 and the car itself in the early months of 1959.
Original color scheme of "Biancospino AR 008" over black Vipla interiors with red piping.
Completely restored a few years ago, with maximum respect for the original features. Still excellent conditions, both aesthetic and mechanical.
Its current Borrani wheels match the period of its production.
Giulietta Spider of the highest collectible value, on account of the rarity of this version, the first “750D” series with a short wheelbase and also because it competed in the 1961 Targa Florio.
Well restored and ready to be used in the most important classic car events, where its important history will make it a welcome participant.
