Bizzarrini GT Strada 5300 – #IA3*0264


Leider können wir den im vergangenen Jahr verstorbenen Jack Koobs de Hartog nicht mehr fragen, wie er dieses Fahrzeug einschätzt. Der Tod von Jack ist ein grosser Verlust. Aber immerhin hat er dazu einmal noch geschrieben, dass er nie einen Beweis fand, dass Bruce McLaren einer der ersten Besitzers dieses Fahrzeugs gewesen sein könnte (wie das gerne behauptet wird).

Angeboten mit folgendem Text: «This 5300 GT Strada, number 264, is believed to have been delivered new to the United States, during September 1967, and is one of the 86 alloy-bodied examples completed by Bizzarrini. According to information compiled by the Iso-Bizzarrini Owners Club, as well as the Bizzarrini Registry, chassis 0264 remained in the United States until 1990, when it was imported to the United Kingdom and submitted to its first recorded restoration. After passing through a chain of owners across England and continental Europe between 1998 and 2007, chassis 0264 finally settled down within the careful ownership of a noted Italian collector in 2008.
Under its most recent previous owner, the car was inspected by marque expert Jack Koobs de Hartog in the UK during September 2015, and in November 2016, the car was purchased by the consignor, at which time it still wore its prior restoration. Chassis 0264 was subsequently submitted to Rebellion Motors of Lausanne, Switzerland during August 2017 for the start of a total, exhaustive, multi-year restoration which would see the car’s alloy body entirely stripped down to bare metal, and fastidiously corrected. This Strada’s chassis also proved to be in relatively aged condition, and so Rebellion Motors with Carrosserie Challenge (also of Lausanne) masterfully repaired and, where required, recreated, and welded in new body panels and chassis reinforcements. In all, this exacting approach likely relieved this Strada of some of its more characterful artifacts of Bizzarrini’s production line—in essence producing a “better than new” finish. A compendium of invoices (on file) illustrate all work completed in great detail, and in total they represent more than 246,000 CHF lavished upon this incredibly sought-after Anglo-Italian hybrid. As presented today, chassis 0264 is desirably equipped with power windows, triple-vane wing vents, Talbot mirrors, and chrome 17-inch Borrani wire wheels. Sparingly used since the completion of its restoration, chassis 0264 retains many superb and correct details throughout. Additionally, its sale is accompanied by two complete, correct-type Chevrolet 5.3-litre engines, one of which has been partially rebuilt by Oldtimer Center Ostschweiz in St. Margrethen».
