Siata 208 Balbo coupé chassis BS537
"In 1954 McAfee commissioned the construction of a special coupe for that year's Carrera Panamericana race. It was unusual in that had a 208 S chassis with a Balbo coupe body. While the Michelotti design was similar to that of the other fifteen cars bodied by Stabilimenti Farina and Balbo, but differed in some details. The most noticeable alterations was the use of large oval shaped headlights instead of the pop-up lights used on the others. Stamped with the highest chassis number of all Siata 208s, the car was shipped to McAfee in time for the race, but most likely engine problems prevented the car to take part in the Carrera. In recent years the car returned to Europe and is sparsely raced. It is seen at one of these occasions during the 2005 Tour Auto"

The car in restoration by Strada e Corsa for me is a normal 208S Stabilimenti Farina

This isn't a Balbo, but a St.Farina.
