What an amazing find! The owner states he only had to clean it up, but I’m wondering if that clean up included all new bushings,seals, gaskets and other rubber based items as they surely would have dried out over that amount of time. I love how Vignale and the other Italian coach builders would make amazing versions of very plain and simple cars. It’s a shame that no longer occurs.
Great car! Looks amazing!
condizione ottima!!! disegno eccelente!!! great story & video!!!
That was beautiful! Love shape of that car..
Can you believe it’s a Fiat? The lost art of great coach building. I think a big difference with the in-house design today by Ferrari, Maserati, and Alfa. Wonderful styling especially from the side view where the car looks like it’s in motion at a standstill. And who’d a thought white-walls would ever look this good on an Italian car!
Ennio Morricone is Italy’s greatest living composer irrespective the genre.
“you don’t own these cars you safeguard them”. Well put.
Lovely story and wonderful car.

At times I have gone through through the same calculations myself. I like cars with performance features, and I like them to look utterly unremarkable.
One of the most beautiful Fiat i have ever seen. Perfect!
Beautiful story and car. Thanks Petrolicious.
That sure is one cute little car and a heck of a find in that condition . But a suggestion Petrolicious seeing as how this is the 2nd video you’ve done on the isle of Sicily . Next time instead of pulling out the canned ‘ stock ‘ music … see about licensing a few bars from Sicily’s and in fact Italy’s greatest living composer . Composer / Cellist Giovanni Sollima . Trust me on this one and have a listen to his original music and especially his solo cello compositions . Music just waiting to be placed in a… Read more »
Great idea. I turned Down volume on the film while keeping the Picture on screen and let this play in the background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldPf3yqq3-8
It worked nicely.
GS, I followed your suggestion and listened to music of Giovanni Sollima,, and I agree, delightfully satisfying and appropriate.
Regarding the Petrolicious Video. Custodian, also agree. Bravo.
Gorgeous body. A little feeling of deja vu. Hmm… Lancia Aurelia, especially the view from the back. A moveable feast.
