These photos were taken in the Rome area in February 1944. Could this car be a custom-built Ghia, probably Fiat (1100 or 1500) ?? The Ghia logo under the moldings is similar to other Ghia (white car) and the frieze on the hood is also similar to the Ghia advertisement. Thank you.

This car is a Fiat 508C-1100A(most probably) cabriolet by Ghia, from the size. The production year is definitively a pre-1941 because the war legislation. Note the blue covers on the front headlights (mandatory at night because the bombings). The title is a III Reich Army, but the car has a national registration code (I) too, so it could be a confiscated car.

Looking at the size I would say a Fiat 1500

Il dubbio, secondo me, è proprio 1100 o 1500? Credo una Ghia fuoriserie (esemplare unico?). Il simbolo posteriore o distintivo (Truppenkennzeichen) è quello del XIV PanzerKorps del generale von Senger, cioè colui che aveva messo a dispozione l'auto per il viaggio dell'abate di Montecassino. Sicuramente preda bellica. Grazie comunque.
