Update, September 23: We found again this car for sale here on eBay. Now the car should be in Dresden, Germany, with bidding at $1,420 and reserve not met.
The Cisitalia 303F is strictly derived from the Fiat 1100 E: indeed “F” is for Fiat. Usually, Stabilimenti Farina have built most bodies for this series, both in Coupè and Cabriolet configuration. Also the engine is the same but with a different head improved by Cisitalia itself which also added a couple of Weber carburetors.
This particular car is said to have been purchased by its current italian owner during an auction done in Firenze in 1988, and that it has three owners from new.
The current owner doesn’t know what parts of the car has been restored in the past: we suppose that at least interiors have been correctly retrimmed: no way that a 60 years old car could still have such perfect cloth. This car is for sure missing the bumpers and maybe there are some other minor details to be fixed but, at last, it’s a very good specimen. Find it for sale at €85,000 (today $112,000) here in Cardano Al Campo, Italy.
