Pretty gorgeous, right? ...by roadworthy you mean registered for UK roads? I own a similar car, the red one <-- , and they handle verrrry sweetly. The silver one we have up for auction was used as a track and event car, then kept in a collection...it has its original Asian log book from 1960, which I'm sure would help registration here...

I'm not the owner of this one, Eclectic Auctions is the auction platform and we list cars as they come. The silver car arrived in the UK at Xmas, and has now been NOVA registered.
It was road legal in the country it came from as the majority of the car is original Fiat 1100, including the chassis cradle, engine, suspension, gearbox, drivetrain etc. Reading some of the threads on RR in the 'legal bit' I'd think is a good place to start. Fiat did make an 1100 roadster transformable and a 1200 spyder based on the 1100.
Personally I'd be modifying the engine and using it for track events and hill-climbing it.
Anyone interested is welcome to come take a look...
