"I have had a look on your site, but I think you need an Italian car to show at the site.
The car in the photo is a Fiat 1200 cabriolet from 1963, 1221cc ohv 4 cyl with 58bhp @ 5,300 rpm.
Designed by Pininfarina. 4 speed and weight 905 kg
This car is one of 400 from a little Italian coachbuilder Vetture Speciali.
I am owner no3, it has covered 121,000km. I got it in exchange for my Jowett Jupiter in 2001, the car has only been painted outside, and a new hood fitted.
In the summer it did the Viking rally, 2300km from Gothenburg in Sweden over Norway to England, and meet the Jowett Car club in Castle Howard in York, then down to the ferry in Harwich and back to Denmark. " Thanks for that Ib - very interesting.
