The Bandini in that picture is a Siluro 750 (1953-1956).
Darren, you are right, the Bandini #67 raced at sebring in 1960 was a Bandini coupè, Zagato bodied made in 1955.

the little Bandini production (75 cars) finished in 1992 at the death of Ilario Bandini.
now this unique car is in these conditions

They also produced a small run of Fiat engined Formula Junior cars. One of which is under restoration near Scumthorpe.
So you don't care for the place?

1) The 1950s coupe that looks like an Abarth 750, but is front engined, discussed earlier in this thread, currently in Forli
2) A 1 liter twin-cam car that looks kind of like Ferrari 206 sports (now in Japan)
3) A 1300cc turbo powered 16 valve twin-cam built circa 1980 in Bandini collection in Forli
If anyone knows otherwise.....
Could you be thinking of the 1990s Abarth Stola show car?

Bandini berlinetta are 4
1) Bandini Zagato bodied 750 DOCH 1955 earlier discussed
2) Bandini 1000 GT engined Bandini DOCH 1 liter 1963
3) Bandini "saloncino" engined Bandini 1000, 1968
4) the last car built was a berlinetta 1000 DOCH 16 valvles injection turbocharged dry carter titanium rods, 4 disc brakes, 5 gears
the chassy and the engine is built in mid 80'
this car had a long test without body, i was a child when Ilario bring me on this car for road tests
the body was ready in late 1990 But we prefer date it in 1992 because Ilario died the sunday 12 april 1992 (just a week before to be 81 years old) and the last time it was been used was the day of my oncle's funeral
so it is never been used for race or so
the onlyone bandini 1300 engined (not turbo) is the red and white that you can see above..
(i'm sorry for my bad english )

in the end of the book, there's only 45 Bandinis existing and identifing as orinal until 2002 and their owners but you can find this article in the book (published also in "auto italiana")
in the 2006 Cliff Reuter has found another Bandini ! the 46th, Devin bodied. You can read its story in Cliff Reuter's site
and in http://velocetoday.c...ifestyle_97.php

I find it interesting that Clair Reuter, who raced the car back then apparently has no relationship to Jack or Cliff Reuter, and apparently neither Jack nor Cliff was aware it still existed!
Do you think the car should be returned to it's original state, which would require a great deal of work, or should it be kept with the Devin body?
Posted 28 January 2007 - 01:27
In this specific case, Cliff has found the original body, you know...
so, egoistic way, i wish the car come back as it was born can you undestand me?
We have only five cars cycle fenders bodied !
Usually i think that the car has an evolution that is part of it, so if you know the complete story and can demonstrate it, it's not a crime to maintein last body because this makes that car different from others.
p.s: if you know other Bandinis on sale, please tell me
or in messanger MSN

I do not know of any other Bandinis hiding in the US, but I would think it is possible that there might be one sitting in a garage somewhere in Italy for many years.
I too would prefer that the car be brought back to the way it was in 1949, with "cycle" fenders, rather than with the Devin body.
I did not know that the original siluro body has been found!
