When the Fiat 1100 Vignale was first purchased in 1953, the buyer decided he wanted the performance of a Turismo Veloce version but not the appearance. To him, the TV was too flashy and attracted more attention than he was comfortable with. Unluckily for him, his special-ordered Fiat still drew too many looks.
His solution was to garage the Fiat and drive the Mercedes Berlina instead. And he didn’t simply park his 1100 Vignale and leave it. No, he drained the fluids, put it on blocks, made sure it stayed perfectly preserved.
About five years ago, Daniele Spataro heard the Fiat was for sale. When he went to look at it, he found the car that looked like it had just rolled off the showroom floor. And with less than 4000 miles on the odometer, it still looked brand new. All Spataro had to do was add the new coat of wax.
Finding such the well-preserved car is impressive no matter what it is, and only 12 Fiat 1100 103s were built with this Charmant Vignale body. The way it was ordered makes it truly one of the kind. Now that’s and incredible barn find.
