After Sebring, this car was entered for the Bridgehampton 400Kms race on Long Island, NY, in September of that year. Hansgen drove it to a fourth place finish and second in class behind class winner Bob Grossman in an ex-works Fiat-Abarth 1000. The race winning car was a Porsche-Abarth 356B Carrera GTL driven by Bob Holbert.
This car has been given a restoration by specialist Nino Epifani and won its class at Pebble Beach in 2002. It remains in concours condition today.
In 2010, this Fiat-Abarth was offered for sale at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia auction presented by Bonhams. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $337,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
