Fiat – 1100 Sport Barchetta


Vehicle Overview

The bodywork of this Fiat 1000 Sport Barchetta was fitted by Rocco Motto from Turin, but the frame was processed by Stanguellini in Modena, the engine was boosted and oil cooling tubes were added. This unique example took part in the Mille Miglia race in 1948 with Pedretti Alessio at no. 395. When the war was over in 1945, many small-time technicians built sports cars from various parts, but the numerous participation of this model in the Mille Miglia race prove that the Fiat 1100 S was always the most appetising. This marvellous car still has its original log book. Its last owner, a doctor, used it to visit his patients. During that period the care therefore underwent some necessary modifications, like moving the spare wheel on the bonnet to make more room for stowing the doctor’s instruments, so that he could better fulfil his duties. The founder of the Museum, Luciano Nicolis, found the example on display in Europe and, with meticulous restoration, returned it to its original splendour.
