Stanguellini-FIAT Sport 1958
Châssis n° 395632

Entreprise de mécanique fondée à Modène en 1879, Stanguellini, dirigée par le petit-fils du fondateur, Vittorio, commença à préparer et à faire courir des FIAT dans les années 1930 avec un très grand succès. Après 1945, la firme s'orienta aussi vers la construction de ses propres modèles de sport et de course et s'intéressa à la nouvelle Formule Junior dès son apparition en Italie en 1957. Juan Manuel Fangio essaya le prototype à Modène et Stanguellini devint le premier constructeur capable de produire ces voitures en série. Ressemblant à une petite Maserati 250 F, la Stanguellini monoplace comprenait un châssis en treillis tubulaire dans lequel le pilote était décalé vers la gauche pour laisser le passage de l'arbre de transmission, et un moteur FIAT 1100 préparé. Stanguellini domina la scène européenne en 1958 et 1959. Plusieurs pilotes firent leurs classes au volant de Stanguellini dont Lorenzo Bandini, Ritchie Ginther et Wolfgang von Trips.

Ce charmant biplace de sport Stanguellini est propulsée par un quatre-cylindres FIAT de
1 089 cm3. Rares sont les informations sur cette voiture outre le fait qu'elle a été restaurée (à une date inconnue) par son propriétaire belge récemment décédé. La voiture décrite comme étant en bon état général est accompagnée de sa carte d'identité FIA et de sa carte grise belge.

1958 Stanguellini-FIAT Sports
Chassis no. 395632

An engineering firm founded in Modena in 1879, Stanguellini, headed by the founder's grandson Vittorio, began tuning and racing FIATs in the 1930s, enjoying considerable success. After WW2 the company branched out into the manufacture of its own sports and racing cars, embracing the new Formula Junior when the latter commenced in Italy in 1957. Juan Manuel Fangio tested the prototype in Modena, after which Stanguellini became the first manufacturer to commence volume production. Styled like a Maserati 250F, the Stanguellini employed a tubular ladder-frame chassis that offset the driver to the left to clear the prop-shaft, and was powered by a tuned FIAT 1100 engine. Stanguellini dominated European racing throughout 1958 and 1959. Up-and-coming drivers who cut their racing teeth on Stanguellinis included Lorenzo Bandini, Ritchie Ginther and Wolfgang von Trips.

This charming Stanguellini two-seat sports car is powered by a four-cylinder FIAT engine displacing 1,089cc. Little is known about it other than the fact that it was restored (at date unknown) by its recently deceased Belgian owner. The car is described as in generally good condition and offered with FIVA Identity Card and Belgian Carte Grise.
