The car is sold new to Mr. Luigi (Gigi) Villoresi on date 12th November 1936 and it was registered in his name with license plate MI 54736.
In the same year, Villoresi and other milenese enthusiasts, including Count Johnny Lurani and Franco Cortese, founded the Scuderia Ambrosiana.
The first official race for the FIAT 6C1500 is the XVI° Rally of Monte Carlo and the crew is Luigi Villoresi and his brother Emilio (Mimì) who will die in Monza in 1939.
Starting from Palermo and after a race of over 4,000 km, they arrived in the Principaute, 13 ° OA and I° of Category.
On April 4th, the FIAT 6C 1500 of the Scuderia Ambrosiana participated to the XI° Mille Miglia with the crew Filippo Tassara - Osvaldo Braga with number 69. The car is equipped with a large Weber carburettor. The Mille Miglia of 1937 is remembered as one of the most terrible for the cold and the rain that were present throughout the road. The crew is ranked 38th overall.
On March 26th 1938, another race for the 6C1500, the prestigious Volante d'Argento. Driver is Gigi Villoresi who after 288 km wins the special category FIAT 1500.
In 1939, the car was sold to Vercelli not before being used by Luigi Villoresi for his personal trips since 1936.
The car after two more transfer of ownership, went to Sardinia in 1953 and is used for rent with driver until 1962, when he was parked in the garage.
The car is in maximum storage conditions. Sardinia's dry climate has kept its bodywork and prevented rust from attacking the bodywork.
Even inside everything is as it originally, and even the leather seats are in good condition even if a mouse have made some holes in the underneath.
In recent years, owners have started to recover the car by disassembling the engine that still has its old Weber carburetor. Each part has been dismantled and cataloged and from what I have seen is absolutely complete.
A few times I happened to see a prewar car in this preserved condition.
In my inspection in Sardinia I also checked the chassis number, which is # 010482, and corresponds to the car of the above historical description.
The engine is partially disassembled but 100% complete, it's correct type and should be the racing version, used in the Mille Miglia 1937, with the Weber carb. Number is an office number.
I remember you that this FIAT 6C 1500 was used by Luigi Villoresi and Scuderia Ambrosiana for their personal trips, as Villoresi himself mentions in his memoirs. It's logical to think that the engine in the current race version has replaced its original during the years it was at the service of the Scuderia.
