Stanguellini Formula Jr on eBay

Stanguellini F Jr for sale

Stanguellini F Jr for saleYou don’t see Stanguellini Formula Juniors pop up on eBay very often. This 1959 example looks lovely. The car was restored in 2004 and has only had a handful of races in the time since.

My usual sources aren’t turning up specific race history for this chassis number but given the solid history of Stanguellini in FJr, there’s a strong chance that there’s some fun stories back there. While this example is unlikely to have any laps turned by well-known Stanguellini racers like Bandini or Von Tripps; with only a touch over a hundred of them made I suppose it’s possible. At least that’s what I would tell myself while I sat in this one in my garage, goggles strapped on and mouthing high revving Fiat 1100 noises.

There’s 6 Days left and reserve not met at $75K. More info on the lot detail page. As always, if it’s little and Italian, Cliff has details for you.

    Neat old race cars, and pretty rare. You may recall that one was stolen, along with its trailer, en route to the Monterey Motorsports Reunion a couple of years ago. I don’t recall seeing anywhere that it had been recovered.

    rare, yes, but reserve price is too expensive in my opinion .Seeoing all the expenses to come to get a neat chassis ready to race .
    And there have been 150 chassis built. Reserve price is high, very high, seeing the declining prices on historic race cars.
