1954 Siata 200CS

Boca Raton Concours 2019

Mar 1, 2019 | On Show

The Fiat 8V, built from 1952 to 1954, was an advanced, high-performance sports car from a manufacturer normally associated with low-cost people movers. Unfortunately for enthusiasts, Fiat built just 114 of the 8V before shutting down production. But it shared the remaining supply of V8 engines with crosstown manufacturer Siata, which used them in a number of different vehicles, including this 1954 Siata 200CS, which is one of 11 cars bodied by Carrozzeria Balbo.

This particular example was purchased by Dr. Julius Eisenstark off of a used car lot in Queens, New York, in 1959, and has remained in the Eisenstark family ever since. It was recently restored to its original blue livery after a 2017 crash with a distracted motorist.
