I have mentioned in my last post that I got confused, so I was trying to find where I had read this and although I couldn't find it, here is something that I would like to share.
Quote:
The 410 Superamerica and the 375 MM were the last Ghia-bodied Ferraris. Both were commissioned by Robert Wilke of Wisconsin and chassis 0473 SA adapted the tailfin of Ghia's spectacular Gilda and Dart prototypes. The overall shape was very dramatic and eccentric but certainly not very fitting for a Ferrari frame.
So most probably I got confused with "last Ghia-bodied Ferrari".

Hmmm...But is it a Fiat? It certainly seems Italian, and carries a trademark Fiat number plate.

Am I supposed to get an explanation for this kind of biased behavior or will I receive a PM again saying that your post has been deleted?
If there is an issue, use the report bad post and we respond to that rather than air grievances in the open, it is quite possible that yours was deleted due to that

We have been asked to delete ID329

The model scale car - that has some relevance as it was a variation on the guess the Car scheme and that stays.

Default ID:332; 1948 Fiat 1100S Mille Miglia Berlinetta

ID:332 is a 1948 Fiat 1100S Mille Miglia Berlinetta



It had the Cisitalia 1089 cc 4-cylinder grandfather of the Indian Fiat 1100/Padmini's 1,089 cc OHV but with 2 Weber carburettors.
It put out 70 bhp @ 5500 rpm and propelled the car to 168 km/h.



Note the beautiful ribbed cast aluminium valve cover and twin Weber 36DR4SP carburettors.

And don't miss the low centre mounted fog lamp, which has been removed for the yellow rally plate, in the red car.

Spot on Ram. It is indeed The 1947-48 Fiat 1100S MM.
In addition to the information Ram has given; The 1100S was actually the first sports car Fiat bought into the market after the War. It had an all Aluminium body but the two seater was quite spartan otherwise. This was an improved version of the pre-war 508 C MM.
Made between 1947-1950, 401 cars were made that makes it very rare.

@ Karl- You make me proud Dikra and truly deserve the mantle of "Fiatwalle" You guessed it right. It was a Fiat.

I deliberately didn't post this pic with a center light as it would make things easier for you Karl.



From the 1100S Sales Brochure

Prima facie this looks like a modern retro kit car, based on mechanicals meant for some other car.
Are you sure it is a volume production car?

And what is the year make and model of the ENFEILD (ENFIELD)?

it is a modern car catering to a very nische market. the company makes 1000 numbers a year only. that is what i read some where.it does not use any other car parts or michanicals. if it does not qualify then it can be removed.
the enfield is a 1957 model and of german make thats all that was there with the picture.

Did you know that the acronym "Bufori" stands for Beautiful, Unique, Fantastic, Original, Romantic, and Irresistible.
It has Australian genes.
