1959 FIAT 110T ABARTH VAN - COYS AUTOSPORT 2015 NEC, Birmingham

Autosport, NEC 

Estimate: £11,000 - £13,000
Registration Number: Italian Registered
Chassis Number: 007051
Dante Giacosa, the great genius who constructed the pre-war 508C and in the post war years the topolino, 1100T, Fiat 500 and 600 was also behind the 1100B and E which were to become the backbone of Italian transport during the late 40s and 50s. The 1100 B and E, were eventually superseded by the more modern 1100 T, which is the taxi car you see in all the Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren movies of the 50s and is still used and made in Iran and in India.
The vehicle on offer is a van based on a 1100T chassis finished in striking two tone period Abarth livery.
This is perhaps the ultimate historic transporter and perfect if you are campaigning Abarths with space for spare parts and equipment. The owner informs us that it is restored and road legal.
This rig would be a great entry to the Goodwood paddock or any other historic event throughout Europe. A wonderful vehicle to complete the Squadra Corse!
