Bacchelli & Villa Collection


Carrozzeria Auto Sport (de Bacchelli & Villa), in Bastiglia just to the north of Modena, was founded in 1972 by Franco Bacchelli and Roberto Villa, to maintain and repair sports and racing cars. Franco Bacchelli was the first employee at Piero Drogo's Carrozzeria Sports Cars in Modena in 1960, where he worked for eleven years, whilst his business partner, Roberto Villa, learned all his aluminium crafting skills at the renowened Carrozzeria Scaglietti in Modena.

34 Feature The curious case of the Curvaceous Cabriolet
Ferrari 212 Ghia 0233 EU - what had Ghia wrought?

Cavallino Staff

Michael Gregg, David Brady, Peter SInghof,


First shown at Pebble Beach, after 5 years in restoration and 40 years in hiding, was the neat little Ferrari 212 Europa Ghia Cabriolet, s/n 0233 EU. It was a sight to behold, being both awkward but beautiful in its own way. It came to the Cavallino Classic and we had to show it to you.
42 Feature The Forgotten Races - part one

The Mille Miglia didn't end in 1957. Its organizers manfully put on events in 1958, 1959 and 1961, albeit with much less powerful cars and a different layout. GT Ferraris did take part, and did well, winning all three.
We have that saga for you in two parts; this issue has 1958 and 1959, with 1961 in the next issue. All brought to you with perfect historical detail.
