Hello. Where is this car now? It is amazing. Best looking O.S.C.A made.
Japan would be a good bet I suppose.
While we are on Vignale. Has anyone tried to recreate the Maserati A6GCS Vignale spider? Another incredible, individualistic design.

Commissioned by Dr. Damonte in 1952 and designed by Michelotti, this #1120 MT-4 is in Japan actually.

Vignale was the master. Better IMO than Pinin Farina.

Who knows? It's difficult to argue.
In the 50's Vignale had a workshop with a good workers team and a designer only, Michelotti, but he was a one-off specialist.
Pinin Farina had a factory, he was a small-series specialist who wanted to become a large-series specialist, supported by hundreds of workers and a designers team.

That blue Vignale car is amazing.

Was is red a couple of years ago or was that a different car?
I have seen a red one at the Mille Miglia. I love the quircky design of the sides..

In respect of the OSCA, I would definitely have to agree, on the other hand, my brother has a very rusty vignale Fiat 124 and to say it is Fugly is polite understatement. My point being that not all his designs were that great !!

Boano's version on the otherhand of both the 124 sedan and coupe is significantly better ! I know as I have had both, still have my '69 AC 124 sport, owned for the past 32 years. See pic attached. The other two pics are not of my AC.

Ok, but here Vignale was the producer, OSCA didn't supply the engines and Michelotti didn't design the car....

The "today" ex-Damote's car has been modified, it has not the original front end.

Received an email from Rene Photo Collection that 1120 is now for sale. Not much information on the email; I'd almost suspect Rene had been hacked. Any corroboration for this chassis's public availability?

Once upon a time I had the good fortune (or good sense) to purchase a Maserati Sebring from Rob Box in Switzerland. It was a splendid car. Vignale's coachwork was impeccable; everything you could expect in a genuine coachbuilt car was present in that car.
