Blue meets red: 1961 Fiat 1500 OSCA Coupé by Pininfarina

The first thing that has caught our attention about this car is the beautiful pale blue mated to the striking red leather interiors. Then we realized that this coupé has the OSCA engine too.

That’s not the most powerful Fiat OSCA made (like the 1600S 118B): this engine is 100 c.c. smaller and it is fed by one only carburetor, but still it’s one of the best Italian engine of the fifties and sixties, a beautiful piece of Italian machinery. Last but not least, these Fiats are maybe the most underrated Italian cars of that period.

This particular car has the typical look of a fairly preserved car: for sure it had a repaint during the years and probably the engine too has been rebuilt in the past: there are no photos of the undercarriage, Interiors or trunk but the seller says that it is in very good conditions: chrome parts need to be refreshed but, basically, you can’t ask much more for such asking price. Find it for sale at €15,000 (today $17,000) here in Lizzanello, Italy.
