Fiat 1100 S Marino Spider 1955 LHD Classic car chasing in Italy becomes very satisfying when after some precious insiders' tips , I am confronted with such a delicious sportscar as this one ! What a beautifully original Spider! What a lovely patina! What a magnificent sporty history! This Fiat 750-1100 S was very intelligently designed by another Italian sportscar wizard Marino Brandoli using the best artisans and the best technology available in the mid-fifties. With excellent results in competition: - 1955 Mille Miglia (750 cc class). 13-th in class. - 1956 Mille Miglia (1100 cc class). DNF - 1955 Hillclimb Aosta Etroubles: 2-nd general classification - 1955 Hillclimb Lessolo in Alice: 1-ste in class and 3-rd general classification. - 1955 Hillclimb Aosta - Gran San Bernardino: 3-rd in class. Very famous names pop up when it comes to body and chassis, because the body, completely in aluminium, was designed by Michelotti and built by carrozzeria Motto from Torino. The tubular chassis was designed by Gilco (Gilberto Colombo). Truly amazing is that today this sportscar is still totally original and in excellent condition. A spectacular preservation class exhibit! Very ingenious was the concept of the engine, which basically is in fact a 1100 S with special Marino cylinder head, but which could be modified to run in 750 cc class or 1100 cc class by changing the connecting rods. When test driving this Spider, one immediately can feel the very sporty character (translated by a delicious sporty sound) which allows to drive with panache. What can I say...? Wow! Well described in the classic car litterature (see "Brandoli" in the well known book: "La Sport e suoi Artigiani"). Comes with Italian registration documents, ancient Italian libretto, ASI Targa D'Oro certificate + golden plate, FIVA ID card, and a very well documented history file containing many period black/white photographs and lots of documentation about the Mille Miglia participations in 1955 and 1956.
