Evaluation: Recent restoration | Restored in 2018 in the United Kingdom. Fresh and gorgeous and done to a high standard. RM claims as few as two or three of these cars, penned by Giovanni Michelotti at Vignale, were built. Located
Bottom Line: Compared to the other Michelotti-designed Fiat in the RM sale (Lot 225), this is much more pleasing—one might say wonderful—to look at. Its styling successfully marries American cues, like two-tone tail fins, with the face of a larger European gran turismo. One particularly nifty feature is the removable center roof panel, popularized years later by the likes of the Triumph TR4 Surrey Top and Porsche 911 Targa. Its performance is moderate at best, but cuteness and rarity count for a lot with buyers, and the Fiat has those in spades.
