It isn’t often that a Best of Show contender at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is restored in an owner’s garage, then hauled cross-country in a borrowed trailer towed by a friend’s truck. Such was the case in 2015, when a stunning 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia won the Postwar Early class, on its way to being named as a finalist (one of three) for Best of Show.

Wow, that looks really unique. Never seen this car before.

It is a fantastic restoration indeed, looks pristine!

I'd love to know what price it will fetch.
