Clearly a Vignale body and Michelotti design, but what is it exactly?
The ornament on the side doesn't look very nice and I'm not sure if that's original.

A Siata maybe?

This reply is very interesting because in the bible for the Fiats and Siatas "Ottovu" by Tony Adriaensens this Siata is not only missing, but the engine type, the carrozzeria builder and bodynumber of the car are unknown. Were did you get this information if I may ask?

Hi there.. Well, i a have adriaaensens book too, also have john de boers 8v registry.. I looked at the distance between the front wheel arch and the door and compared gt to cars in the book.. Then gt is easy to conclude that this a long wheel base 8v.. fiat did not make any, so, it has to be a SIATA. with clearly. A michelotti designed vignale body. I think 3 were made? 2 of which i know personally. . I am not home now so cant swear to that.. But the only long wheel base siata 208 vignale is 64..

People, I should have warned you all for Biz's notorious CAPS LOCK button. It seems to have a life of its own. ;)

This is a Vignale Siata 208. Could it be the same car? Seems to fit with the bonnet but the grille looks smoother on the mystery car (but it also appears to quite a lot of bondo around it).

Difficult to say: this should be the CS066 repainted. We're still investigating.

This appears to be the Siate 208 again and it also appears to be a pretty good fit to the "Mystery Vignale" in the first post.

This is the #0048 exhibited at Turin and at Paris in 1953.
