Michelotti job: 1960 Triumph Italia 2000 Coupé by Vignale

Cattura

In 1959, Salvatore Ruffino commissioned to Giovanni Michelotti, the top-notch italian car designer at the time, the task to design a sport coupé based on Triumph TR3 chassis and engine. The grey car in the photo is the result of such work. It seems a wonderful specimen and has still its original black plate.

The body made by Vignale coachworks is slim and elegant. On this particular car it seems perfect along with all the exterior chrome trims.

Interiors status is coherent with the rest of the car. Everything is in its place, and all is quite correct: the only exception according to us is the seat stitching pattern which seems not correct. The seller says the the car has been restored in 2006 and it did around 8000 kms since then. Find it here for sale at €65,000 (today $85,000) in Bologna, Italy.
