The Abarth Coupe in this gallery is built on Fiat's 750/850 GT chassis, powered by an 850 cc engine coupe, and fitted with a body by Carrozzeria Allemano of Torino, Italy. The exact number built is not known, but it is generally agreed that the total is less than 200. Currently, less than 10 are known to exist in North America. In the book The Italian Car Registry by John de Boer, less than 30 of the nearly 600 Abarth 750/850 GT cars listed are Allemano coupes. In its day, the Abarth Allemano Coupe was very well received but sold in very small numbers. At a price of $3,385, it was in direct price competition with the Porsche Speedster and Alfa Romeo Guiletta Spyder.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
