Lots of rare, limited-production cars from the '50s and '60s were used as race cars when they were new—nobody really knew they'd be worth a lot of money someday. This Zagato-bodied Fiat is a great example.

This car, a rare Abarth 750 GT Zagato, was sold new in Canada and passed through seven different owners, all of whom took it racing. At one point, it was even rolled on its side in a competition mishap. It was only when Perry Solomon, the eighth and current owner, got ahold of the car that it was reverted back to its original, road-ready state.

Solomon was lucky enough to be able to preserve the car's original red interior, which was passed from owner to owner despite not being installed in the car. Things like the door handles, trim pieces, hood props, and other extremely rare parts were also retained. Petrolicious spoke with Solomon about the car, its fascinating history, and how he came to acquire it.

Solomon plans on showcasing his special machine at this year's Pebble Beach festivities during Monterey Car Week. If you're attending, keep an eye out for it.
