Coming Soon! Late Summer 2017 Issue

1948 Lancia Pininfarina

We visit Colton Amster, owner of Redline Restorations in Black Rock, Connecticut. Colton shares with us one of their latest restorations, a 1948 Lancia Pininfarina. This automobile has tremendous history: In 1948 it was a personal gift from Battista Pininfarina to Olympic Bicyclist Gino Bartali. Bartali was a hero during WWII, helping to save the lives of many Jews by traveling across several countries delivering newly forged identity documents in his bicycle frame and handlebars. In 2013 the car was bought as a barn find by a collector and restoration of the Lancia soon began. It is now completed and is headed to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.

Built by Henry Ford II specifically to undermine Ferrari’s success in racing, the Ford GT40 was a clear statement sent to Maranello directly from Ford. We take a look at an original 1965 GT40 living in Massachusetts.
