This beautiful and exclusive Siata Daina 1400 Coupe was first delivered in Milan on June 12th. 1950, and spent almost its entire life in Italy. Its first owner was Tristano Torelli from Milan, the editor of the comic series “Piccolo Sceriffo” (“little sheriff”). In 1951 Tristano Torelli sold the car to Como, where it had a total of 3 owners (all known) until 1956. From 1956 to 1983, SL 0121 was in the same Isidoro Favaro family, located in Loreggia near Padua (Venetia). On April 17th., 1983, the car was sold to an enthusiast from Arezzo, after being discovered as a “barn find” on an estate. The new owner wanted a full restoration of the car and bring it back to its original condition. Of course, the original and beautiful light blue metallic color, Azurro Metallizato, was also used again. A color that was very modern in the fifties.
Before starting with the technical part, he restored the beautifully shaped body and chic interior. Because everything had to be perfect again and some very hard-to-find parts were missing, the restoration of the body took no less than six years. Another five years later, the car, including all the technique, was like new again. The restoration is documented with photos and invoices. Incidentally, the amount of documentation is enormous. A thick map shows the complete history of the car. Numerous articles written about this car, owners list, technical specifications and passports (including the passport for the opportunity to participate in the famous Mille Migla) Reading it is a true journey through time and great to see what this car has experienced.
In 2014 the car was sold to Germany and in 2017 to the current owner. Since then, the car has been used on a number of tours and rallies, and exhibited at Concours d’Elégances.
Recently, for cosmetic reasons, the Siata was provided with a new coat of paint. A professional restoration company has used all its skills and experience to give the car the look it deserves and which the next owner will enjoy for many years to come.
