It’s Sunday, let’s take a look this 1961 OSCA 1600 GT that sold @goodingandcompany for 489,000$. If you’ve never heard of OSCA, you’re not alone. It was started in 1947 by the Maserati brothers who had already sold their shares in 1937 but were under a 10 year contract. They now focused on small sports cars and race cars eventually teaming up with Fiat to help them design race engines. In 58, a deal was made to build a racecar. Fiat would build the car, OSCA would design the motor and a coach builder would wrap it, in this case it was Zagato. The motor was a Hemi head, 1,568cc in-line four with dual Weber carbs. It produced 125hp and revved all the way to 7,200rpm.
These are extremely rare and expensive. The previous owner spent 300,000$ on the comprehensive restauration. This example is a best in class and Concours winner and it brought the money. With only 31 believed surviving examples, they don’t come up for sale very often. So when you see one and it’s a good one, jump on it. • 1,568cc DOHC Inline 4 Cylinder Engine • 2x Weber Carbs
• 4 wheel disc brakes
• 4 speed manual
