Nice early Italian race history. Stanguellini prepared. Importantly, the 1100 TV is eligible for the Mille Miglia and thus represents a relatively inexpensive means of participation in this prestigious historic event. A very well documented car. The Fiat Company has very deep roots in the automotive industry, mostly in production, but some in racing. The legendary tuner, Abarth, helped to increase the popularity and success of Fiat cars during the 1950s and 1960s, and achieve many victories around Europe. The Fiat 500 and 600 were small, mass-produced cars and a big key to the companys prosperity during the 1950s and 1960s. The 1100 TV Fiat was a mild-deviation into the inexpensive sports car arena. Production began in the early 1950s and continued through 1958. It was distinguishable by its split, recessed grille, roll-up windows, and wraparound windshield. Under the hood was a 1,089 cc four-cylinder overhead-valve engine and drive arrived at the rear wheels via a four-speed gearbox. The 1100 was praised for its comfortable ride, impressive performance for the time and exceptional handling. Entirely redesigned as a compact four-door sedan in 1953 the 1100 received its new name, 1100/103 after its project number. Along with modern monocoque bodywork, the 1100/103 featured integrated front lights and was available in two different versions; the economica and normale. The cheaper and standard models were joined with a sporty version in the fall of 1953, the 1100TV (Turismo Veloce). This sporty sibling featured a third light in the middle of the grille and bumped up 50 PS (37 kW) in place of the normal 36 PS (26 kW) of the regular models. Drivers could opt for the station-wagon version also with a side-hinged fifth door at the rear.
