Between 1955 and 1957, in the period after leaving Ghia and before joining the just-created Centro Stile Fiat, Felice Mario Boano created his own factory, called Boano Lavorazioni Speciali. In those three years Boano created such unique cars like Ferrari 250 low roof, Abarth 207 A, Lincoln Indianapolis, Boano Nardi Corsair. He created also some little masterpieces like this car, based on a Fiat 1100/103 TV chassis. The body is (hand)made of aluminium, with steel doors and perspex rear window.
This Fiat 1100 Sport TV is the only remaining known example of the 10 produced cars.
The 1247 cc engine was tuned by Giannini Automobili S.p.a. (Rome, Italy) to 65 Hp.
This car was in Italy until 2014. It was completely restored in 2013/2014.
It participated in the Mille Miglia in 2014 and 2015.
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.
