Update, same day: As reported by the atcual owner of this car, the original photos have been recycled to be used on a fake ad. Happy 2020 everyone!

January 2, 2020

If we are to be honest, we have not understood much of the announcement relating to this car, however the car is particular and therefore deserves to be mentioned.

In fact, we are talking about an Abarth-Simca 1300 GT, one of the worst berlinetta built in the 60s: an engine with a sharp, hard power delivery, and fully exploitable only by expert hands, an aluminum body, a hard to operate steering wheel and a fantastic noise coming from the 4 in 1 exhaust.

The car presented here seems to be the subject of a restoration that has begun but not yet finished, the seller just says that the car will be sold in the current state with the addition of all the parts needed to reassemble it “otherwise it remains where it is”: we don’t discuss the choice but it wouldn’t have been bad to see more photos of the remaining parts including the twin-cam engine which alone is worth over $100,000. Last but not least, we don’t understand what the first photo matters as it seems a different car. The asking price pblished is fake, of course, so if you want to know it you just need to make a phone call to the seller. Find it for sale here in Latina, Italy.
