1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A F. Ramseier & Cie Worblaufen Cabriolet shown by Jim Patterson/The Patterson Collection

A 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A was acquired by Carrosserie Worblaufen around 1931 and used as the basis for a Sport Cabriolet they had envisioned on the long-wheelbase, 145-inch chassis. The finished car was displayed at the 1932 Geneva Auto Show and won the Grand-Prix d’Honneur at Cannes in 1933.

The well-balanced proportions of the chassis, with its long hood and low windshield, belies its true size. And the appearance of the close-coupled body on the long wheelbase is enhanced by the dual rear-mounted spares.

This magnificent car has had only four owners from new; it lived a quiet life in Switzerland and France before coming to North America in 2014. It won top honors at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2015.

An Unmatched Tradition of Automotive Excellence since 1950
