Mystery Car Revealed

That’s right, it’s a 1953 Moretti 750 Gran Sport. PFG “spit out” the correct answer after first addition an extraneous and kind of embarrassing appendage.
Moretti got his start making motorcycle engines, transitioning to cars after WWII. This Gran Sport rocks a 748-cc dohc four that puts out a bantam 71 horsepower. The Michelotti bodywork of this berlinetta  is just as avant garde as the motor, but the chassis below is more plebeian with leaf springs holding up both ends- transversely in front and attached to a live axle in the rear.
You can check out more pictures and some further details of this little Moretti at Sports Car Digest. And my congratulations to PFG, even though your first stab was a little hard to swallow.

    Dear Moretti 750 Gran Sport,
    I've never seen you around before, but I can tell you've definitely been around a while, as most younger sports cars just don't have your elegance and beauty. I just want you to know that I know nothing about your personality, I know nothing of your reputation, and on paper you don't seem all too impressive, but you are beautiful and I love you.

    What a delightful little machine! It's a shame such a car would never be legal to produce and sell now.
    Sometimes I get the urge to import a kei car for something with a similar attitude. Maybe a Honda Beat, or a Cappucino.

    So how many clowns fit in it?
    No, seriously, that's a beautiful little car. But it does look like a carnival ride.
