Short car, long nose: 1964 Abarth 1000 Bialbero


Let’s begin with saying that this car it’s not a bargain, and we suppose that no-one could believe it is. However, this is so beautiful that deserves to be published.



It’s a 1000 Bialbero “Long Nose” from 1964, a car (like most Abarth’s) buillt in order to join every available race accross the world: every detail of this car is born to race, beginning from the ducktail (the shape of which was discovered, almost by mistake, during some test of the ferrari Dino 246SP two years before this car was born). Not many knows that the bodies of these cars were realized by an almost unknown coachbuilder, Sibona & Basano.


This car looks nut-and-bolt restored with the consulting on mr. Panagin who was involved in build the first car like this at Sibona & Basano (see b/w photo), fifity years ago: so we expect that the restoration job has been basically perfect, and we’ve nothing more to add. Find it for sale at €200,000 (today $227,000) here in Pesaro, Italy.

  1. What’s with the engine modification to timing belt? This is certainly not from 1964. This should subtract significantly from the value.
