Chassis #: CS061
Siata was the acronym for an Italian company that originally provided auto equipment and engine conversions, especially for Fiats. Automobile production began in 1948. Among the early Siatas were roadsters and coupe versions of the Fiat 8V coupe, both of which were produced as a joint effort with Fiat. (The order of the letter and numeral - 8V - was reversed as they though Henry Ford had patented the V8 name.)

The car is powered by an overhead-valve, 1977cc (2-liter) V8 engine developing 110 horsepower coupled to a manual transmission and capable of about 125 mph.

The very light aluminum bodies were made by Vignale and included a hood scoop. Siatas were mainly exported to the United States, where they took part in many sports car races. The 1875-pound car sold for $6,000.

The Siata 208 was launched to much critical acclaim late in 1952. Around sixty Siata chassis were produced in 1953 and 1954 and they received at least six different body styles. The most common of these are the 208S for the open cars and the 208SC for these slightly larger coupes.

The Carrozzeria Motto-built Spyder body was a popular choice with its lightweight and nimble chassis. It is not known who designed this coupe body but it was either Franco Scaglione or Giovanni Michelotti. The first coachbuilder for these coupes as Stabilimenti Farina but they folded after just six examples were produced. A further nine coupes were constructed along the same liens by the small coachbuilder, Carrozzeria Balbo in Turin.

Chassis CS061 was purchased by its current owner in 2004.
