1952 Siata 1400 news, pictures, specifications, and information
The new owner was Roberto Montali of Oucona, Italy, and it ran in the Mille Miglia. The car saw action in both the 1954 and 1955 events. In 1956, a United States soldier, Alfred Maggiocomo, bought the car and shipped it stateside. His brother, Jocko, installed a TR3 engine at his shop, in Poughkeepsie, New York. The car was raced and eventually scrapped, once in New York and again in Vermont. It was acquired by Dave Dubrul, and eventually found its current owner in 1985.
The current owner restored the car with much help from Jack Brown. The required historical information provided by John de Boer. The restoration was completed in time to be shown at the 2010 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
