Only four Nardi 750s were ever built, and this example is just 1 of 2 built with a Crosley engine.

Here we have an incredibly rare 1953 Nardi 750 Frua Body, and this one sports chassis number 3 out of just 4 ever built. That's right, only four of these exist in the world. In fact, this number can be narrowed down even further with this being just 1 of 2 Nardi 750s powered by a Crosley engine. Hemmings is excited to offer the opportunity to own this ultra-rare 1953 Nardi 750 Frua Body (chassis #953-1) restoration project. When this gem is finished, there's no denying that it would steal the show at any high-end Concours d'Elegance or other prestigious car events.

This $80K S2000 shows that rare, perfect-condition cars are still commanding big bucks

  This $80K S2000 shows that rare, perfect-condition cars are still commanding big bucks There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now. We’ve touched on what the coronavirus pandemic means for the global car market, but the situation for many auction companies is sink or swim. Meanwhile, over at Bring a Trailer, little appears to have changed. Last week, a 2008 Honda S2000 CR sold for $80,325 including buyer’s premium. That car set a record, beating a never-driven, never-registered AP1 that sold for more than $70,000 last year.

The 750 Nardi -Danese (or 750 ND) was a tiny machine, assembled on a Fiat 500 chassis, powered by a 50 bhp (37 kW) 746 cc BMW flat twin motorcycle engine in the extreme nose with its cylinder heads (sometimes) A 750 Spider was presented at 37th Paris Salon in 1950, bodied by Pietro Frua .[12].

All of the first five U.S. cases were described as mild. A study on the first US case of novel coronavirus detailed mild symptoms followed by pneumonia. DELTA had not adjusted its schedule of direct flights from the U.S. to China. It is the only airline with direct flights to not take action so far.

As mentioned above, this Frua-bodied '53 Nardi 750 features coachwork by Pietro Frua and is the third car built out of 4 by racing legend Enrico Nardi, who drove for Ferrari back in the 1930s and 1940s. Not only was he an icon on the track, but he was also an incredible engineer. Two cars with American racing history (including this one) were built for the New York Auto Show on order by American millionaire industrialist Stanley H. "Wacky" Arnolt. At the show, this car was awarded best in design.

After the show, Arnolt raced the car just a few times at two events in the Midwest between 1953 through 1955. During this time, it was also displayed at the Henry Ford Museum and featured in Road & Track magazine. Into the 1960s, this particular example was campaigned as an H-Mod racer before being shunned to storage. Later on, the car was revived for the vintage racing circuit in the 1990s. Restoration on the car was started by a previous owner but the project was put on hold, and this is how it sits today. It comes with the Crosley OHC inline-four, a 4-speed transmission, and other parts.

For total cases and deaths: Circles are sized by the number of people there who have tested positive, which may differ from where they contracted the illness. Note: States and territories are grouped according to how the seven-day average of new cases has changed from two weeks ago to today.

Bonnie Nardi is an emeritus professor of the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine, where she led the TechDec research lab in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction and computer-supported cooperative work.

The Nardi Frua was concurrent with the Siata 300BC, and both cars used Fiat components including front and rear axles, brakes, and gearboxes. When it came to power, two of the Nardi Fruas used Crosley engines while the other two were equipped with Panhard engines. This idea came to life thanks to "Wacky" Arnolt who saw the Panhard-powered cars but asked Enrico to build two equipped with Crosley engines.

Finished in a brilliant red over a black interior, this open two-seater '53 Nardi 750 Frua Body still retains original components such as the gauges, knobs, switches, steering wheel, dash script, and original badging. Interior stitching on the inside mimics a Ferrari Spyder. A Frua distinctive feature from the early-'50s is the third headlight found in the aluminum grille. Other features include the full-width windscreen and the Marchal headlamps. Some modifications can be seen on the body that were performed at some point including the nose above the grille, and the original tail lamps have been removed.

If interested in finishing the restoration of an ultra-rare car that will be the ultimate conversation piece, check out this incredible 1953 Nardi 750 Frua Body. Offered by Hemmings in collaboration with Rapley Classic Cars in Brookfield, Connecticut, this car is listed at $125,000 but is negotiable so feel free to make an offer they can't refuse.
