a 1953 Fiat 1100 Charmant Vignale was found in a barn in Sicily, and is nearly factory fresh

Just 12 of these Vignale-bodied beauties were hand crafted in the 1950s. This one only was driven 6000 miles before it was stored away for 6 decades.

This car was found on bricks in a barn, where it sat since the 1950s. It was purchased new by a wealthy lawyer, who specifically ordered it to remain under the radar, (think factory sleeper).

The lawyer ordered the car with some factory hop-up parts like Borrani rims, an Abarth intake, dual carbs, Nardi performance exhaust, oil cup, and hi po ignition coil. Inside, a Nardi wood steering wheel, speedometer, and radio.

  1. Saw it yesterday on Petrolicious. Just an achingly beautiful little car. The owner is right: he's a steward, not an owner, saving it for posterity.

    Wish it was mine, at least for a day...
