Description

Italian registration Engine # 11886 - Beautifully preserved car - An attractive and original model Sold new to an aristocrat named "Marazzi Castiglioni Giovanna di Rigo", this car was regularly maintained by the driver of the owner at that time. Dark blue in colour, its body is well preserved and behind doors that open vis- à-vis the grey cloth interior is in impeccable condition. The dashboard, painted metal characteristic of Italian cars of that era, is also in superb condition, and features a radio Phonola behind the big wheel in white plastic. This model succeeded the Ardea in 1953 and adopted the traditional V4 engine of the brand (in 1089cc capacity), which in this car is an original one. Particularly immaculate in its manufacturing and finishing, the Appia was significantly more expensive than its director competitor, the Fiat 1100. With its air of an Aurelia small sedan, it has imposing bearing and those who are familiar with the car recognize it's qualities of freshness, comfort and higher category endurance. Still with its original registration, and eligible for the Mille Miglia, this attractive Appia comes with its original Libretto.
