I believe the car on Craigslist belongs to John de Boer.

It's RHD and all, perfect! I'm only a substantial lottery win away from making it mine!

Hmmm...although the seller makes a good case for the price, I can't see the percieved final value in this car with the original engine missing...as he points out, not for some. His Viotti sounds more my price range, certainly a fantastic collection of cars to have (* dreams *).

moretti 750 gran sport

I have seen this car in person and can tell you it is fantastic. It is steel bodied unlike the '54/'55 gran sports which were aluminum but is still extremely light. As I remember it still has corner weights marked on each fender. The body is very reminiscent of early ferrari 212s by Vignale/Michelotti and has a VERY short rear end. The rear window falls almost straight into the tail and there seemed to be a quite large gas tank. It is RHD I believe and had really nice instruments. I would gladly give a nut to have it join my gran sport #1292 in line for restoration

Moretti 750 MM Sport Internazionale

Oh what a relentless life! Sometimes you have to be engaged, even more often to work hard, and seldom you have to take a chance only recognizing what is given to transitoriness ....

Ha! Yes, it's not every day you see a Siata, Moretti, Viotti Fiat, et al, advertised together, let along in the 'local rag'. I was having a quick peek having narrowly missed an Abarth Scorpione on Craigslist last week! Anamera's looking out of touch lately.

Moretti N. 823

Yes, the Moretti is mine. It is N. 823. The body is indeed steel, nicely made and is very lightwieght despite this. It is also a bit larger than a "Gran Sport". In fact, it is a fair bit wider and there is more room inside. The wide track should help it to handle quite well and perhaps more comfortably than the smaller cars? As mentioned in my ad, the chassis should be strengthened in a couple of ways before the car is driven hard enough to test its limits. Oh ... and you'll have to come up with an engine.

I removed the CL listing of 12/26/2009 and I reposted late last night with minor changes to the text. So, the listing can still be found even if the link posted above no longer works.

I think the internet has already proven that there is no such thing as a "local rag"? If nothing else, you may consider this something of a social experiment?

John

Good luck with the sales, John. All very neat cars. I hope they will make room for something else fantastic.

Moretti generator?

Hi guys,
In all these photos I don't see a generator for the engine. Where is it located?
I've got a Marelli DN44, similar to a Giulietta Veloce that I've had on eBay, with no interest. I got it many years ago from a junk yard that specialized in exotic European cars.
It is marked Moretti and has a wider grooved aluminum pulley, than what an Alfa would use.
Thanks,
Keith

Dear David,
At about 2 years ago I send you already a message. Can you please answer me on my email: [email protected]
I've some original papers of your Moretti. I've also some spare-parts.
At this moment I've restored my Moretti and already sold it (# 1290)
Please answer me by email.
Best Regards
Frans Pisters

Hello David,
Congrats for the 750! I bought about a month ago 1294. I actually expect it to arrive soon in Greece. It was in the States most of its life (I believe from new). I would highly appreciate if you could share with me your database on these cars and I will gladly share whatever I may find on 1292. My email is : [email protected]
Thanks in advance!
Alex
