    The Fiat Abarth Monomille has the same body, right?

    Was this model fully intended for racing ? It seems kind of unfinished and not-refined to go out onto the street legally !

    Great looker though !

    The Blue Simca Abarth posted by Ferrer is without doubt a 2litre from origin. All short nose versions with the " scoop" under the nose were 2litre cars. (as far as you can say this for sure when Abarth is concerned)

    The one at the Swetzingen concours is probably retro-fitted with a Simca rally engine. Judging from the roundtail it is a 1300 from origin. 1300 Simca's also came as Twin-cams.

    Apart from the 1300 and 2000 , there also was an 1600. Gearboxes ranged from 4 speed, 5 speed to 6speed.

    Like Henk pointed out, the Monomille-Bialbero looked similar to the Simca Abarths but was actually very different. The one at Pebble Beach is probably a 1000 Bialbero, judging by the air-intake, covered headlights and Campy wheels, or it could also be one of a few Monomilles built with a Bialbero body.

    Given that Pebble usually attracts the rarest of the breed, I would not be surprised if your guess about what the car is, is about correct....
