For the uninitiated, these Cisitalia weren’t built by one coachbuilder only: actually they were built both by Pininfarina and Vignale but unfortunately we son’t now this detail maybe because the car is missing its fender badges.

The seller says that this is a very early car since it has a split windscreen, the engine type is correct along with the correct magneto, it has four Borrani wire wheels and also some external trims.

Other than that, the seller says that the chassis of this car was used in some competitions back then: it would be very interesting to go deeper into the story of this car, including to know where they discovered it. Of course restoring this car isn’t a job for rookies: there are many parts which are basicallly unobtainable and many of those have to be built from scratch. Find it for sale at €220,000 (today $245,000) here in San Zeno, Italy.
