The Cisitalia-Fords, designated Model 808, were a stillborn effort, so Piero Dusio decided to spin off Savonuzzi’s coupé as a European car, using the Fiat 1900 as a base. Thus emerged the 505 DF (for Derivata Fiat), using the Fiat’s 1,901-cubic centimetre engine, which had been up-rated. The first 505 DF was shown at Salone Geneva in 1953. Chassis numbers indicate no more than ten were built, of which only two are known to survive.

We'll tell the story of this model on the occasion of its anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
