Fiat : Other Abarth 750 Spider by Allemano for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.15) based on 467 votes

Offered for sale is a fantastic example of an exceedingly rare and beautifully presented 1959 Fiat Abarth 750 Spider with coachwork by Allemano.   While a vast majority of Carlo Abarth's offerings were closed cars. some of his clientele preferred open cars for competition and he was aware that a roadster could be successful in the profitable U. S. market. As such. he commissioned a Spider from Zagato based upon the 750GT. With Zagato's initial designs drawing only limited appeal. Abarth turned to Carrozzeria Allemano. the Turin based coachbuilder famous for their work with Maserati throughout the 1950s. The result of their efforts is a Spider that's entirely unique. sleek and sporty while retaining a period Italian charm. It's believed that Allemano only built 750 Spiders for Abarth and complete correct cars are especially difficult to find. making this a truly uncommon opportunity.

Tastefully finished in a rich dark blue over black. this car turns heads and garners attention wherever it goes. The finish is deep and lustrous. free of any dings or scratches. and all of the polished alloy and chrome trim (including the distinctive curved bumpers) is in excellent condition. The car is factory correct with three exceptions: the optional and extremely rare period Campagnolo wheels. leather seats (they were originally vinyl). and squareweave interior carpeting (originally just rubber mats). The car's interior is equally as clean. The seats and carpets are in excellent shape. as is the original dash. which retains its correct Abarth gauges and switchgear. The door trim is complete with proper storage pockets and the car's navy soft top and boot cover are in good condition.  

The original 747 CC inline 4-Cylinder engine with correct 2-Barrel Weber carburetor runs beautifully. starting without any smoke or hesitation. idling consistently and pulling strongly through each of its four gears. The car's four wheel drum brakes function effectively (it hardly weighs anything. after all). and the car's wheelbase. front transverse leaf-spring suspension and rear independent coil-spring suspension make it handle like a go-cart. It's undeniably fun to drive and one immediately understands Abarth's legendary racing history from behind the steering wheel.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an exceptionally rare and unique Abarth Spider that's ready for club events. shows. or even just weekend drives. Finding another 750 Allemano bodied Spider is nearly impossible. so serious Etceterini or collectors looking for a fun and unique investment should give this car significant consideration.

We've always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions. That time has come for this Abarth (if the price is right. of course – this isn't a fire sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're enthusiasts. not experts. and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.  

For U. S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction's end. the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction's end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction's end. Buyer is responsible for shipping. however we'd be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction's end. Thanks for your interest.
