A Little History

This wonderful 1911 FIAT Tipo 6 is believed to be one of the only 28 examples produced and is said to cost $10,000 new from the coach-builder.

The car’s original owner, William Wallace Jr., competed in the inaugural Vanderbilt Cup Race in 1904 on Long Island in a FIAT and later won that year’s Eagle Rock Hill Climb in New Jersey. By 1910, Mr. Wallace Jr. had become a member of the Vanderbilt Cup Committee.
