??Cisitalia-Argentina (Fiat-OSCA Fissore) ??
Not so fast? Until we describe the whole of the production completely, there's still a lot that we don't know, so it may be better to keep our minds open? Rather like the apparent gap from chassis number 0037 to chassis 0070 in the OSCA 1600GT series.
I recall seeing a coupe (Fissore?, remembered as being quite similar to Viotti or Ellena?) Fiat-OSCA. Sorry Nik, but I have to disagree with your feeling that it is wrong to call these cars "Fiat-OSCA". Even worse, my father and I have oftentimes called them "Fosca"! But you might be able to blame that moniker on my father as I'm sure he exposed me to that at a young age. Not my fault! In any case, this car was badged as "Cisitalia" and was at Walnut Creek Ferrari back in 1991/1992. I thought it was longer ago than that. The car had come from South America. Chassis was Fiat 118S*003727 and the engine was Fiat 118.000*001791. The "Numero per Ricambi" was 717111 which still seems a bit odd. But then, what I didn't know then was a lot more than the huge amount I don't know now. Haven't seen sign of that car since, so far as I know, but I have learned that there was a small series of Fissore-bodied cars that Cisitalia called "DF/85" and at least two went to South America. Could an "OSCA-Fissore" have gone as well? Of course. Did one? I don't know.
Simply because you (nor I) have not seen an OSCA 1600GT (PR2 or PRV or GT2?) Fissore that was badged and sold by Cisitalia-Argentina does not mean that one never existed. And of course, if it did exist, it would not mean that it was really a "Cisitalia" in any case! Or, we might say it was a "Cisitalia" but perhaps not "a Cisitalia". Cool car in any case, no matter the name.
