1959 Abarth 750 Zagato Double Bubble

Desirable coachwork by Zagato, California Mille veteran and an absolute blast to drive. Enormous fun in a diminutive package.

This 1959 Fiat Abarth 750 Zagato is a proven and wonderfully-presented example of the desirable, pint-sized racer for the road. It is in excellent condition throughout, benefitting from sympathetic restoration work and expert care. This car, chassis number 558327, was built in road-going trim and is equipped with bumperettes front and rear, as well as a smattering of additional trim to thinly disguise its purposeful, race-bred roots. The Zagato-built coachwork is in excellent condition; the alloy panels being very straight and clean, and exhibiting very good fit. The bright red paintwork shows in fine order throughout, having mellowed slightly since its restoration. Other features include covered headlamps, correct wheels with chrome hubcaps, and badges that proudly proclaim Abarth’s past success in 750 Gran Turismo racing.

The signature Italian pushbutton handles open the featherweight door to reveal a surprisingly spacious interior that belies the tiny outside proportions. Taller drivers will appreciate Zagato’s signature roofline as well as the rear-engine layout that affords plenty of leg room. The seats are trimmed in biscuit tan leather with black piping, along with black carpeting and tan panels. The interior was refreshed in approximately 2004 and it remains in excellent condition today, the seats having just taken on a broken-in character that suits the car well. For road rally duty, a roll bar has been integrated behind the seats. The dash features a full complement of original Jaeger gauges and the wood-rimmed, period Nardi wheel has been refinished to a high standard…………
