There were two 6C 1750s Gran Sport's in South Africa until a few years ago, one belonged to the late Dr Hugh Gearing, it was a 2 seater body of English origin, approximating the bodies on the 8C 2900 cars. It went to England and was fully restored, being changed from red and black to black and tan
The other was something quite unique, a stunningly gorgeous little Coupť made by Figoni as the 1933 Paris Show Car. It was owned by the late Waldi Greyvenstein. This little gem went to a well known and well respected collector in Canada where it was fully rebuilt by RX Coachworks changing from 2 tone blue into the '33 Paris colours of black\cream and tan and subsequently swept the floor with everything else at Ville de Este.
I will have to look up the chassis numbers, but there's a thread on the Figoni Coupť on this board. Just do a thread search.
