The Stanguellini Company was famous in the 1950s and 1960s for building fast little sports cars based on Fiat mechanics.
These little Stanguellini coupes were built for the Paris and New York Auto Shows in 1954, and they have many similar features to the three Alfa Romeo B.A.T. series of prototypes.
The first owner of this car was Briggs Cunningham, who purchased it for his wife Laura after the New York Auto Show. It then passed to Indianapolis 500 driver Luciano Tonino who gave it to his son Alciente as a wedding gift in 1955. He owned the car until 2006. The current owners had the car restored in the late 2000s.
