I am trying to research the racing history of 1947 Cisitalia 202 Gran Sport Coupe chassis number 102. It was purchased from a car dealer Glen Cove, NY in 1968. Supposedly it was previously owned buy Rob de la Rive Box (automotive book author). The car had obviously been raced, its bumpers had been removed, holes filled, plexiglass side and rear windows. trafficators removed and filled, etc. It also has the Mille Miglia spec. two carb. engine (original). It looks like the original color was french blue but, was red when purchased from New York in 1968. According to Racing Sports Cars website there were several gentlemen racing Cisitalia 202's in the Northeast, Russ Boss, Jim McGee, Joseph Ferguson, Bob Said, Dick Gent, Bruce Taylor, and Ken Denston. I have a webpage with photos of the car at: http://www.autoarch....sitalia202.html
I have Zero history prior to 1968 when my friend bought the car and it would be wonderful to discover some. Any insight would be appreciated.
