Abarth 2200 Allemano 045141
This discovery means we can now identify 11 similar examples from Abarth (by chassis number, as Abarth "2200", "2300" or "2400") that were bodied by Allemano in coupe and convertible forms. We also have some descriptive information about an additional 15 or more examples that are likely to be Allemano. As always, I hope to learn the engine number and the Allemano body number as well as record any specific history that is known for any of these cars.
Based on the chassis number alone, we can guess the car was built 1961 and based on some Abarth ledger data that seems to show cars for which a "Cerfificato d'Origine" was issued, (this chassis number not appearing) we can postulate that the car was not intended to be sold in the Italian market. This is not definitive simply because a Certificato d'Origine could have accompanied the chassis from Fiat or could have been issued by certain other entities in Italy. It would be quite "normal" for an export-market car to not have received a "Certificato d'Origine".
What is the source of the "28 made" claim? One owner of such a car claimed his car was "one of twelve" when it was advertised almost 40 years ago. Of course, he might have been claiming "one of 12" based on criteria more exclusive than merely "Abarth six cylinder Allemano"?
Best of luck!
