The quest for parts: 1958 Fiat 1200 Granluce by Viotti

Owning a rare car also means taking on the burden of working with parts that are difficult to find, as in the case of this Viotti.

Actually, from the mechanical point of view, this car does not require a lot of effort since the chassis, engine, brakes, suspension are those of a Fiat 1200, produced in several thousands of examples between convertible and sedan, so if you have a contact in Italy you shouldn’t have big problems, even to find an engine that seems to be missing in this car.

The problems begin when there are no trims, both internal and external, or those parts tailored for these very special versions, often produced in a few dozen units, in most cases less than a hundred and, much more often, less than fifty. However, this car seems quite complete and, although there will be difficulties in finding parts such as hubcaps, which are basically unobtainable, it does not seem such a difficult game. Find it for sale at €16,000 (today $19,500) here in Milano, Italy.

  1. The CO (Como) license should have been released between late Summer and early Autumn 1958, so could be the original first one, according to the short description.
    Best to all,
