Aluminium heritage: 1950 Fiat 1400 Coupé by Farina

Let’s say that, at least for us, there can be no more appropriate color for a 1950 Italian Coupe: this shade of maroon (or dark red) is typical of italian sports cars of that period.

Of course, to think today that this is a sports car makes you smile considering that, at best, this engine produces 80hp: however this very rare example (the seller says that three were produced: it is plausible but we believe that no one can be sure) has the aluminum bodywork molded by Farina and consequently the weight will not even reach a ton.

The car appears to be in very good condition and with (apparently) almost all of its original parts in place: “almost” because, as is often the case with this type of car, the bumpers are missing. This happened because often one of the first owners decided to compete and consequently dismantled the bumpers which were in fact a useless weight to carry around: these remained in a corner of the garage for years until sooner or later they were lost. The dashboard instruments are beautiful but, even better, is the very rare Abarth intake kit. The price, unfortunately, is not stated. Find it for sale here in Montecatini Terme, Italy.
