Hi Nik,

Since I posted this I've done some research. The gent who has (or had?) advertsied the car for sale in Australia used to be associated with a US import sales company called AutoArt. They had a lot of exclusive stock, much of which was located in the US, but advertised at VERY high non-negotiable prices - reportedly they didn't sell much of it due to these high asking prices (the blue 'OSCA' picture on the trailer page 7 was AU$80,000, or about US$65,000). I am not sure if the company still exists, but some of the stock is still for sale locally (including an AU$40,000 1960 Fiat OSCA and AU$30,000 Moretti Tour du Monde).

I may be able to find some contact details if you are interested, but my guess is that the car is being brokered in Australia via the advertised seller, and is probably still located in the US. Certainly an interesting looking car - I like it, but would prefer to rescue the yellow Boneschi and restore to near original condition. Finances dictate I continue dreaming, unfortunately.

Cheers,
Duane

Autoart is the OSCA collector in Melbourne Mike Nicholas... So he must have bought it??... He has 2 Boneschis and a Fissore....
