1929 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo 8A 7.4 litre Sport Landaulette
Coachwork by Carrozzeria Castagna of Milan
Registration no. GU 6061
Chassis no. 1390
Engine no. 1390
- Further information has now come to light suggesting that the chassis number of this car is 1349. In the 1980s Michael Worthington-Williams had the opportunity to inspect an old registration document which indicated that the car was a Type 8A 1349. The same document quoted chassis and engine number as 1390. It appears that the chassis number was incorrectly quoted and in our opinion the chassis number is most likely to be 1349. Sadly, this old registration document was not passed on to the current owner and its whereabouts are not known.
Isotta-Fraschini factory records are at best sketchy and incomplete, however it is known that consecutive chassis number 1348 was dispatched on 22nd March 1929. It is known from Worthington-Williams notes that the old registration document recorded first registration of the car today offered was 12th April 1929 which seems consistent with a batch produced in March/April 1929.
We are asked to point out that car no.1390 with engine no.1413 survives in a private collection in Europe.
This car is not currently licenced.
