We are not new to this particular variation of the legendary Fiat 1100/103, which for years has been the blank canvas on which many coachbuilders – not only Italian – have realized their vision.
One of these, indeed one of the main ones, was Allemano, who designed both this coupé version and a Cabriolet version of this design, an example of which was put up for auction two years ago (without meeting the reserve price). These are extremely rare and special cars, eligible for the Mille Miglia.
This coupe was clearly restored above and below, inside and out; the difficulty of restoring this special car is to have some photos of how they were originally because the documentation on them is practically non-existent, so the restorer must be trusted. The only detail that is clearly incorrect is about the rear lights: in Italy the obligation of orange rear turn signals has started since 1959, but that is a detail. Find it for sale at €185,000 (today $207,000) here in Castiglione Delle Stiviere, Italy.

Once again a car designed by Michelotti. In particular this model has been introduced to the 1953 Turin motor show.
Hello. Is this vehicle based on the standard 1100 or 1100 TV?
The seller didn’t mention “TV” anywhere and that’s almost impossible to tell without a check on a chassis/engine number, so we suppose that’s a “Normale”.
