Quite a History on this motor.:smile:

t was once viewed as any other transporter—earning double takes only because of the precious cargo stacked on its double-decker beds—but today the Fiat Bartoletti Tipo 306/2 is a gravity well of attention at any classic car event it attends, whether in the paddocks of Laguna Seca or the Nürburgring, where I got a chance to view it in detail both on and off track.

Also known as the Scarab or the Shelby Transporter, this custom-built hauler was eyewitness to several significant moments in motorsport history. Being active for almost three decades from the beginning of the 1960s to the end of the ‘80s has left this transporter with a very unique history in the sport that it never directly participated in.
