1955 Bandini Siluro DOHC # 358
This magnificent Bandini was
produced by the legendary Ilario Bandini. Bandini lovingly created 75 cars by hand from 1946 until 1986. The Siluro
(torpedo) had removable fenders and was therefore eligible for both the Italian formula 3 series (open wheel 750 cc) and sports car races
such as the Mille Miglia. These little cars also raced in America where
they won the SCCA class H Modified national championship
in 1955 and 1957. Jack Reuter has owned this example for over 20 years. It features a Bandini 750cc DOHC engine. It is all original and won an award in the 2002 Pebble Beach
Concourse D'Elegance. It is now featured in the 2005 Italian Cars Calendar
with photos by Ron Kimball.
