1954 Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta Coupé.



She had a tiny 748 cc Bi-Albero (meaning twin-cam or DOHC) 4-cylinder engine, breathing through two Weber DCOE (Doppio Corpo Orizzontale ) carburetors. Nevertheless, the 748 cc engine developed 75 bhp @ 8000 rpm, pushing the little 495 kg. car to 175 km/h.

The Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta coupé was designed by Michelotti for the manufacturer: Fabbrica Automobili Moretti SpA, Turin.

Isn't it a beauty ?

One of my all time favourite cars, a tech marvel in terms of performance derived from engine size

ID:633
Looks to me like a Fiat XL 1/9


The Fiat X1/9 is a two-seater mid-engined sports car designed by Bertone and built by Fiat until 1982 and Bertone between 1982 and 1989.Production lasted from 1972
1989 with the first official right-hand drive variant arriving in 1976.The Fiat X1/9 was the first affordable mass produced mid-engined[COLOR=#0000ff]sports car to employ the revolutionary use of a complete transverse Fiat 128 FWD engine and gearbox package in a mid-mounted RWD position (a solution later employed by other budget mid engined sports cars).The X1/9 was considered to have excellent handling, and was amongst the first cars to meet the abandoned late 60s U.S. safety regulations.

Default ID:633; Ginetta G32 1.6i Turbo

ID:633 is a Ginetta G32 1.6i Turbo



There were apparently only two specimens built with the Ford 1.6RS turbo engine.

However there were approx. 120 more made with more standard engines.
The standard engines were a Ford 1.6 CVH from the Ford Fiesta XR2 and the Ford 1.9.

Problems with the Ford 1.6 RS turbo related to difficulty in shoehorning-in the intercooler.

RE ID:633 the rear lights are a dead give away for it being a ford, inspired from the Sierra. It sports the same or similar light cluster. Im glad this thread is having some movement, though i missed the last few posts.

Go on guys!!
