Siata Daina Berlinetta 1951 LHD This Siata Daina Berlinetta is as much a rolling sculpture celebrating Italian car design as a sportscar. Presented at the 1950 Torino motorshow this Siata 2 door sports Coupé continued the very innovative design-trend set by the Cisitalia 202 just a couple of years before and was still 1 year ahead of the even so much celebrated Lancia Aurelia B20. Chassis N°: SL 0121 must be one of the prototypes of the Siata Daina Berlinetta being coachbuilt by Stabilimenti Farina entirely in aluminium, having a unique bonnet-scoop from original, only one port-hole vent on the side of the front wings, a thinner and more elegant grille, etc... Found in 1984 in a derilict garage, the last Italian owner started a lengthy and comprehensive restoration of the steel chassis & substructure, aluminium skin, the whole mechanics, electricity, instruments, chrome, badges, trim, etc... respecting rigourously the originality of this Siata. All this labour was rewarded in 2006 by a very, very neat looking Siata. I was also very impressed when viewing this Daina Berlinetta for the first time. The exterior body colour in light blue metallic, which is this cars original shade, looks absolutely stunning and suits this model perfectly. This excellent impression was once again confirmed when concentrating on the mechanics. Super smooth, totally overhauled 4 cylinder 1500 cc engine (N°: SL 0121) fed by a twin carburettor set-up (90 HP), 5 speed gearbox commanded by an easy handling steering-column shift, steering, brakes, etc... all mechanical elements in tip-top condition. Finally, a nowadays much appreciated element is that this Siata Daina Berlinetta is still registered in Italy under the original Padova registration number. My conclusion? An extraordinary little jewel!
