1954 Swallow Doretti

The Swallow Doretti was produced by the Swallow Side Car Company between 1954 and 1955. The underpinnings of the car were based largely on the Triumph TR2. Only 276 cars were built. It’s estimated that only 140 remain worldwide, making them one of the rarest British roadsters.
This example has been restored to concours quality standards. It was stored for 48 years prior to its total restoration and as a result the bodywork is perfect.
Estimate is $140k to $180k.The car was powered by a 1,991-cc inline four-cylinder engine paired to a four-speed manual gearbox, featuring optional factory overdrive.
