While they are small, the Abarth 750 Zagato "Double Bubble" coupe is rather mighty. These cars collected numerous victories on the track, everywhere from the famed Mille Miglia to the 12 Hours of Sebring. While its 750cc inline four cylinder engine with 48 horsepower might not seem like much, its lightweight and diminutive size more than made up for it. This 750 Zagato for sale in Connecticut has a race history behind it and wouldn't be a car you'd be afraid to use regularly in vintage racing.
1959 Fiat Abarth 750 Zagato Double Bubble Coupe. Runs and drives well. Has an extensive VSCCA race history. She has a Race Car paint job. Looks good from a distance, but nothing flash up close. Ideal for the track. I love these door handles.
Push the button, pull the handle. VSCCA Safety Inspection (scrutineering) Stickers. One for every race. A couple of things to note:
1. The seats are period, but not original. They come up on eBay occasionally.
2. The engine is correct, but not matching number. Not uncommon for a race car.
The paint is ideal for an old race car. The floors are original and in very good condition. Optional auxiliary radiator.
As we mentioned with the last Abarth 750 featured, good examples will run you around $80,000 to $100,000. Since this one is a bit rough, but nonetheless complete, I'd suspect somewhere between $65,000 to $75,000 might be a good estimate for its worth. As it sits, the patina on this car is great and a departure from the over restored examples you tend to see at auction. Let's hope the new owner keeps on racing it as originally intended.
