Another one with very different body style.
Last seen in public on the 1991 Mille Miglia.

And here's another old pic.
This seems to be the one that's in Japan.

The black one is the #1153.
The blue one, actually in Japan, is the #1120 Le Mans 1952.

Nice :good: Perhaps the most risky and successful creation of Vignale imho.

This car is the #1108, built in 1949 and rebodied by Vignale with a "Cunningham C3 style" in 1951.

I'm not sure if this is a earlier desing of 1120 or another car?

I would love to see more and preferable larger pictures of this one. I have never seen it before and it looks stunning.

It's the same #1120 chassis before the crash. There is a misunderstanding because the car raced at Le Mans with the same number (48) in 1952 and in 1953.

A rare pic of the #1105 during the 1953 mille miglia. This car born as a siluro, Vignale rebodied it as a berlinetta and in 1955, after a crash, rebodied it again as a barchetta for the same customer.

I really like the look of #1105. I love the concave sides and the front fascia similar to the ones Vignale used on some Ferraris. Are there any pictures of how the new body looked like?

One, but isn't available for the web. However, imagine the same car without the roof and with a standard Osca grill on the front instead the original.

Do you know what happened to it? Is it still with us somewhere?

I found another picture of 1120 in this earlier guise.

Here is a larger version of the picture from the previous page. I also just saw that this car have three windshield wipers in the old pictures, one on the roof and two on the bonnet. I don't think I've seen that setup before.
