Only the braves: 1952 Siata 300 BC by Motto


The are good cars, there are project cars and there are challenges which could scare even the bravest man on the earth: this “car” is one of that.



Actually this is a chassis/aluminium shell assembly (crafted by Rocco Motto) of a 1952 Siata 300 BC, a little barchetta built with the main purpose of being driven at road races of that era. Nothing has remained of that car, except his skeleton and, as the seller says, four wire wheels. When new, this car should have looked like the one below.


Although the seller says that, when properly restored, cars like this could fetch over $200,000, we wonder how much a restoration of this kind could cost: not only the “job” itself but also the headaches to find the correct parts which, in this case, are innumerable: a mammoth task. Find it for sale here on eBay with a current bid just over $20,000 and reserve not met.
