1962 INNOCENTI 950 Spider - €14,500
Italian charm... without the mechanical complexity!
If you're in love with stylish Italian coachbuilding, but you have more faith in solid British mechanics, this charming Innocenti 950 Spider is a match made in heaven!
Combining a stylish Ghia design drawn by the legendary Tom Tjaarda and built by OSI with the tried and tested Austin Healey Sprite MkII platform, it truly offers the best of both worlds for anyone looking at an easy entry into the world of rare, coachbuilt Italians. The 948cc BMC A-Series engine is one of the most common engines in the world, and with tens of thousands of Sprite MkII's built, parts and knowhow are cheap and readily available. Apart from its stunning design, which surely must have inspired Karmann when they drew the Triumph TR6, the Innocenti offers some additional comfort compared to its British cousin: large lockable doors with wind-up windows, an exterior and lockable bootlid, a lockable glove box, and an interestingly shaped instrument cluster with Veglia instruments.
Launched in November 1960 at the Turin Motor Show, a total of 4,790 Innocenti 950 Spiders were manufactured up until February 1963, making it relatively rare and even more today! Furthermore, its pre-1965 vintage makes it eligible for the large majority of classic car rallies and events.
We bought this Spider near Firenze, from an 80-year-old gentleman. Despite both his age and the age of the car, our modern Fiat had difficulties keeping up with him on the small Italian roads!
The car comes with Italian documents, a hardtop, and a trunk full of spares. In need of some "TLC", this car is the ideal entry-level project for the cold winter evenings. We're sure it will make quite a few heads turn during the 2018 rally season!
Interestingly priced at 14.500 Euro.
