  • Description
  • Specifications
The Type 55 that we have here is an outstanding example, possibly the most exquisite example in existence today. Originally fitted with its beautiful custom roadster body by the Fleetwood Metal Body company of Pennsylvania, it was sold new through the Hol-Tan Company in New York City in 1912. The car was found sitting in a barn of in upstate New York in the 1950's by Gene Hecht who was a well known and long time collector from New Jersey. Gene had the car restored by the well known restorer Ralph Buckley in the 1960's and it stayed in his collection until our recent acquisition of the car. 
 
Since we have acquired it, it has been treated to a full restoration, both cosmetically and mechanically. The 9 liter 4 cylinder paired with the 4 speed transmission is really outstanding. The engine has been fitted with a billet crankshaft, balanced connecting rods and aluminum pistons. It makes a 50 horsepower chain drive Simplex or a Mercer raceabout seem sluggish. This Fiat has so much torque that it could climb a tree. The bore and stroke is 5 3/8 X 6 3/4, making a lot of power. The coachwork, provenance and overall look is off the charts beautiful. Not many cars of this size, quality and beauty exist today with great provenance such as this. Fiat was certainly making some of the most exquisite cars in the world at this time. Now available for acquisition for the first time in over 60 years.
