A very Special Moretti indeed, this one has been modified to be equipped with a massive V8 engine.
Quote from the current Owner
In the family since 1961 when my dad (..) bought two (NDLR: the other one is still uknown to the Registry) (he traded one for a 1970 Subaru van many years ago). I took ownership/possession in 2015 after my mother passed away.
My dad modified this car in the late 1970’s. My uncle had a 1964 Sunbeam Tiger that suffered fairly heavy crash damage. He bought a second one from a junk yard and made one out of the two (which he still has today & is gorgeous!).
Car is lengthened 13” from the firewall forward. Powered by factory Ford 260 V8 w/ 2 barrel carb & 4 speed transmission.
The rear end is Tiger of unknown specs.
