Footnotes

  • This example of the Fiat Abarth 750 Bialbero 'Record Monza' Coupé starred within the Collezione Maranello Rosso for many years.

 We have found no record of its early career, but it has been inspected for us by immensely experienced marque experts and they express no doubt that it is a highly original and absolutely authentic example of the type.

    Surviving records confirm that it was registered in May 22, 1965, to Alfonso Vallisi of Bologna.

There is also some evidence that it had previously been part of the Abarth works team - and there is an inference (unconfirmed) that it is one of the cars which participated in the Sebring 12-Hours before selling to a customer in Taranto, Italy.

 One Antonello Degli Esposti, of Bologna, is listed as acquiring the car on October 5, 1974. John de Boer's 'The Italian Car Registry' lists this chassis serial as having originated on October 10, 1959.

 Fabrizio Violati acquired it on March 11, 2003.



    At first inspection this most attractive little Abarth 750 Bialbero's engine proved by hand to turn freely, its cylinder bores look clean and in good condition, and the water pump is also free to rotate within its housing. The power unit thus has the potential to be started with further investigation and work completed to the electrics and fuel system. The clutch system is operating and all gears could be selected. We also found that the braking system is operable but would recommend that it is subject to a full strip and rebuild prior to the car being used.

 Its interior 
has a wonderful 'time machine' feel yet is in remarkably good order. This is plainly a very fine surviving example of this immensely successful and exciting Abarth model. It would provide instant access to many of the world's leading Historic racing and concours events and promises the successful bidder many miles of truly entertaining use. EU taxes have been paid and this Lot is therefore in free EU circulation.
