The auction proceeds will benefit the Fondazione Damiano Tamagni charity, which works on reducing violent crimes amongst juveniles. The last owner of the car was Marco Schmuklerski, an architect who’s buildings very famous around the country. Experts estimate suggest the real true value of the car could top around €90,000. The vehicle can very potentially be restored, or could be easily be used as a display piece.

The car’s identity was tracked through its engine number and chassis number, 879, 2461 respectively, and gearbox number, 964.

It consists of a Chausson radiator, Zenith carburetor, and a twin ignition from SEV.
