This Allemano bodied is a unique example with coachwork designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi.
The rolling chassis was ordered by a close friend of David Brown, Mr. J. O'Hana of Casablanca, who shipped the car to Allemano Serafino of Torino.
With a new Berlinetta body and an engine with DB3 specifications, Mr. O'Hana enjoyed driving and racing the car in Casablanca.
After a thorough restauration, the car won first prize in 'Italian Coachwork Class' at the 1994 Pebble Beach Concours.
Aston Martin Historian, Roger Stowers said about this car "This car must be the best example of foreign coachwork on any Aston Martin".
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
