1953 Siata Berlina Prototype news, pictures, and information
SIATA built approximately 50 cars in the early 1950s powered by FIAT's 2-litre, 8-V motor. The vehicle is equipped with a 4-speed transmission, and has independent suspension front and rear. The Berlina is built on a lengthened (8 inch) SIATA coupe chassis allowing adequate room for 4 adults and their luggage.
The vehicle was resold in 1955, driven for 3-4 years, and then it sat in storage for 30 years. During this storage, the vehicle suffered severe water damage when a snow storm collapsed the roof of the storage warehouse.
This SIATA Berlina has now undergone a total restoration, returning the car to original in all respects. You are seeing the vehicle as it was shown in 1952-1953, original colors, et al. One very unusual aspect of the vehicle is its tires and wheels. These are the original un-restored 50+ year old tires and wheels.
