Bizzarrini GT Strada 5300
This gorgeous 1965 aluminium bodied Bizzarrini 5300 was born as a Strada (Street version) and converted to Corsa (race) specification by a prior owner about 20 years ago. Contrary to many other Bizzarrini's, #0245 is a no-stories Bizzarrini with clear and continuous history from new. Its specification includes a Series 1 dashboard, De Dion rear axle and correct period 327ci small block chevy engine with a Muncie T22 4-speed gearbox.
In 2014 the current owner bought the car from its prior Swiss owner who had commissioned a full rebuild upon his purchase of #0245 in 2005. Since then, the car has successfully participated in events such as the Trofeo Nastro Rosso, NKHTGT, Le mans Legends, etc. with multiple podium finishes.
The current owner has spent a further EUR 100k+ on the car including a new, fresh Mathwall state-of-the-art FIA engine, new fuel cells, new brake calipers, aeroquip hoses, Vbox kit, etc.. No expense has been spared and this stunning Bizzarini is sold in absolutely race-ready condition with nothing further to spend by its new, lucky owner.
#0245 is located in U.K. and is sold with new, 2016 FIA HTP papers and a complete history file. There is also the old swiss street registration document. Spares include a set of 4 x 7" and 4 x 9" wheels and various other miscellaneous parts such as fuel-pumps, gaskets, distributor, etc..
This is a rare opportunity to buy an alloy bodied, no-stories and very competitive Bizzarini 5300 in outstanding condition which is eligible for all historic race and rally events including LeMans Classic 2016.
