53 Siata bark cheddar

      Putting the lens on a one-owner 1953 SIATA 300 BC BARCHETTA

      Sold in 1956, this red Siata 300 BarkCheddar is actually a 53. Sold at Amelia this year for just under $200K USD, the Siata sports the larger 1100 cc engine, a snottier cam and meatier pistons. Compared to the traditional 750 cc powerplant, this guy puts out an extra 10 hp.

      Numbers matching the car is 38 of approximately 40 Bertone-bodied examples. The car amazingly comes from a single owner who's had it in his possession for the last 60 years. The car now resides in the Fred Phillips Collection.
