1960 Fiat Abarth 750 GT Zagato Sestriere
s/n 734541. engine number 100D. 000 1372493
Red with Black Interior
Built using Fiat's 600 as a basis. the Abarth 750 GT was an attractive and competitive Zagato-bodied car that helped establish Carlo Abarth's firm as a manufacturer of sports cars and not merely tuning components. which is how the company started in the 1930s. Using the floorpan of the 600. Abarth fitted sleek and lightweight Zagato bodies and significantly revamped the motors. fitting lighted and balanced flywheels. and high performance internals including crank. high compression pistons. larger valves. upgraded valve train. and performance camshafts. The resulting displacement was 747cc instead of the 633cc of the standard engine. and nearly twice the power output.
Introduced in 1955. the cars were entered in races almost immediately and were quite successful on both sides of the Atlantic. achieving second in class at the 1956 Mille Miglia. and winning its class at the 1957 Mille Miglia. The cars also achieved class and overall victories at the 1958 and 1959 Rallye de Sestriere. Four out of five examples entered finished the 12 Hours of Sebring. one of which one its class. while another achieved second at the SCCA races at Palm Springs. As was common among Italian cars of the period. the 750 GT Zagato evolved continuously and the Sestriere variant arrived in 1959. which differed in detail and was named for the victories at the Rallye de Sestriere.
This particular example had a long term owner in Southern California for at least thirty years. and the car could be seen at the annual August festivities in Monterey for many years. having been driven up by its enthusiastic owner. Interestingly. the car is aluminum bodied. while most of this period were steel-bodied. Based on the serial number. it is likely that this car was produced in 1959. though it is titled as a 1960. likely the year in which it was first sold. which is a common practice for old cars.
Today. the car is in presentable and attractive condition. with some patina. The body is generally straight and solid. with a few minor areas of electrolysis. such as on the right C pillar and right rocker panel. There is a dent under the right headlamps and one in the right door as well. The body is straight with good fit. likely as good as if not better than when new. The paintwork is in good shape and is reasonably high quality. with some orange peel and a few signs of wear in the form of chips and small scratches. There is some checking present on the roof. The chrome is generally very good. although the hubcaps show some patina. The glass is in good shape. with minor wear to the windscreen. The car has Year of Manufacture yellow license plates.
The interior condition is consistent with the exterior. with strong overall presentation but some patina. The upholstery is in very good shape. while the carpets are good. The dashboard is nice. with lovely Jaeger Abarth instruments. The trim and controls are in good shape. The door weather seals have perished.
The engine compartment is very clean and has a vintage appearance with no untoward or inappropriate modernizations. It is fairly well-detailed and the motor appears to have been well-maintained. The engine is built on a 100D block. indicating it is a Fiat 600D motor. The front compartment is solid and has seen some restoration work in areas. but is unrestored in others. The spare and windscreen washer fluid bag are in place.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a Zagato-bodied Abarth with longtime California history. Fundamentally excellent. this example is in nice driver condition and can be driven and enjoyed as is. or sympathetically restored.
