Family friend: 1958 Abarth 750 by Zagato

Of course, you can’t say much differently about a car that, in addition to being rare, has been in the same family for more than 40 years and raced in Lime Rock in 1982, at least from what the seller says.

It is a 750 and has a double bubble on the roof, the seller says the bodywork and floors are in excellent condition: in fact, even looking at the car from the photos you get the impression of a specimen that needs a bit of tlc but who is basically in excellent health.

Even the wheels look like the original Borrani (that’s right: Borrani didn’t just make spoked wheels). In short, the car seems the right example to put on the road with little economic effort but the great unknown that is constant for these cars remains: the engine. It is probably the original one but it is very difficult to tell at first glance, unless you are one of the very few experts on these cars. Find it for sale at $70.000 here in Groton, CT.
