Description: 1956 Moretti 1500 Sports Twin Plug Racecar
Starting in 1949 and continuing through 1957, Moretti cars have a long and exciting history of participation in the Mille Miglia. This car, A Moretti 1500 Freccia d'Oro, is powered by a Moretti designed and built 1500cc, four-cylinder, twin cam, twin plug, twin carburetor and twin distributor motor. It has both body and tubular chassis by Moretti. The four-speed transmission is a Fiat 1100. This car was one of three ordered and built in 1955-56 by Moretti for the 1500cc class by an Argentinean group who wanted to compete against the Maserati 150S and OSCA 1500, among others. This is the 3rd car built; #001 went to Argentina and was never paid for, but crash/destroyed; #002 and #003 were bought by the Trustee for Moretti's bankruptcy as an independent constructor in the 1960s. Moretti aurvived several more years as a carrozzeria or body designer/coachbuilder, mostly for Fiat.

This Moretti is the only one known to exist and is in mostly original condition. It does have new paint and an engine rebuild.
