Sorry but i dont remember the name of the store I saw it on a car show on tv ,they stated the father put it in store to draw attention and hope bring in customers since a 57 chevy was a big deal in 57 he had it sealed inside a glass cage in center isle of the store, and after his passing his daughter either auctioned or raffled it to some lucky winner ,I forget mileage but it was Very low can remember as good as i should ,to many Octobers

Is it a production vehicle as opposed to a race application? Is it European?

Sorry, but that's not it either. I won't let this drag on too long, because it was a pretty obscure trivia tidbit I happened to stumble upon about a week ago.

I'm going with the Fiat 500 Giardiniera with the Puch Boxer engine or possibly the standard inline engine.

Nope...according to what I stumbled across, it was an Iso Isetta. I found this on the studebakerdriversclub.com forum. If you Google "Obscure Automotive Trivia" you'll find the info. I tried to find the reasoning for the different stroke lengths, but was unable to do so. The original poster found this information in an automotive engineering text book copyright date 1960, and posted it on the studebaker forum in a trivia discussion. Next time I'll try for something a bit easier. Anyone who wants to toss out the next trivia head-scratcher...go for it.
