Nardi-Danese 750 barchetta "Boby" 1947 LHD I am very proud to have this unique Nardi-Danese here in the showroom of my classic car garage in Belgium, but honestly I think that this Nardi-Danese should be in the Museo dell' Automobile di Torino! Judge for yourself. Here are the very strong points of this Nardi-Danese: - The first ever Nardi-Danese built. - Only this example was built. A one-off! In total max. 50 sportscars all sorts were built during the period 1947-1955. - Tubular chassis and aluminium coachwork designed by Count Mario Revelli di Baumont and constructed by Motto in Torino. Total weight 390 Kg. - Engine BMW 750 cc from R75 motorbike developping 40 HP. 4-speed gearbox. - First outing at 1947 Coppa D' Oro delle Dolomiti was immediately also first victory! With Mr. Nardi and Mr. Danese themselves as pilot and co-pilot. 300 Km up and down the Dolomite mountains at an average speed of 63 Km/h! See black/white photos with racing number 111 attached to this mail. - 1947 Hill climb San Bernardo - Aosta. Pilot: Franco Gatto Roissard. 6-th overall. - 1947 Coppa Montenero - Livorno. Pilot Franco Gatto Roissard. 1-st in 750 class. See black/white photo with racing number: 28 - 1949 Corsa Notturna di Mirafiori. Pilot: Arturo Trevisan. - 1949 Susa-Moncenisio. Pilot: Arturo Trevisan. Sold by Tony Pompeo, sports- and racecar importer in the USA, to Frank Dominiani and from now on fitted with American 750 cc Crosley 4-cylinder engine. - 1952 Giant's Despair Hillclimb. Pilot: Frank Dominiani. 1-st in class. - 1953 Watkins Glen Cup. Pilot: Frank Dominiani. 1-st in class. Discovered in the USA by Italian collector (my customer) and brought back to Italy and completely restored by well known exotic car restorer Faralli from Pisa to Coppa Montenero specification (black/white photo with racing number 28) - with original BMW engine re-installed. - In perfect cosmetic condition and ready to go! - Very well documented. - Mentionned in detail with several period black/white photos in the book: "Enrico Nardi. Una Vita di Corsa". Also in the book "La Sport e suoi artigani" + a very nice article in "Ruote Classiche" magazine N° 286 from October 2012. I am absolutely sure this Nardi-Danese will provide great pleasure to her future owner (also Mille Miglia eligible), will be "the star" in any classic car collection, and... has a bright future!
