A stunning original example of this very rare Right Hand Drive model, that we have just brought over from Firenze in Italy last year.
Still wearing its original coloured Metallic Silver Cellulose paintwork, that was only refreshed over 30 years ago, with its original near unmarked Red Vinyl Tex interior and trim. Still having its original running in sticker in the front windscreen with also a original Italian 1967 parking permit sticker.
The wonderful engine in these 2300S SII models was uprated by Abarth, with two Twin Choke Carburettors, uprated camshafts, exhaust, then mated to a Four speed manual gearbox.
Also as the SII last series, it has the external additions of opening front wing vents, extra side & front wing chrome trims and sill covers.
Assembly of these models took place at the OSI factory in Torino, as the Ghia factory could not complete the production numbers required.
In 2010 it was ASI registered in Italy by the last collector owner, that we have just purchased her from.
Between 1962 to 1969 it is believed only about 200 were made in RHD in total sold worldwide, from the website how many left, it appears only around 8-10 of all the 2300 models were UK registered between 1964 to 1967.
The last of the 2300S Coupe’s of the SII specification was first registered in 1967, so this possibly could be the only other original, 1967 Right Hand Drive SII specification to be registered here in the UK.
It is to be UK registered on a Historic tax exempt, age related registration number, and has been MOT’d, although also being MOT exempt.
We have now Sold and delivered this lovely example to its new owner in Cornwall
