This car is one of 80 Shellettes built by FIAT. This is an unrestored original, showing slightly more than 8,000 kilometers from new. Most of these cars were purchased by the cognoscenti, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and used for land transportation while their yachts were moored on the French Riviera of Monte Carlo.
The car is powered by an 850cc four-cylinder gasoline motor.
The previous owner of this Shellette was Barry Ward, who purchased the car from Duncan Hamilton Ltd., who was selling the car for wealthy British car collector.
