1952 Siata 208CS

Chassis number : CS507L

Share on:

This Siata 208 CS 2+2 Berlinetta wears coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone on a slightly lengthened (by 200mm) chassis in mid-1952. There were four 2,700mm chassis built by Siata for the 208 models. This example, a one-off order from Stanley Arnolt, was put on display at the Paris Auto Show in October of 1952 and then at the New York International Motor Sports Show in April 1953. Arnolt later sold the car to Stuart Sherman in Illinois, then acquired in 1955 by Roy Thoressen in Minnesota, who stored the car for more than 30 years until 1989.

In 1993, it was acquired, still in original condition, by Walter Eisenstark, of Yorktown Heights. A restoration began around the turn of the millennium to very high standards. More recently the car has been part of a prominent Belgian collection.
