Wonderful period photo! - and look at the dark colour on the inner wheels! interesting that the article refers to spyder ( with a 'y' ) and Pinin Parina ( two words) both of which I would have thought were incorrect!

David, if you are happy to build one (or two) up, I think I have got three or four incomplete ones...

Until 1961, Pinin Farina was the man (sez Wiki: 1961 at the age of 68, “Pinin” Farina formally turns his firm over to his son Sergio and his son-in-law, Renzo Carli, it was the same year that the President of Italy formally authorized the change of Farina’s last name to Pininfarina.).

According to Pininfarina's website, the company was originally called Pinin Farina: "More than 80 years have passed since May 22, 1930, the day when Battista “Pinin” Farina (the surname Farina was changed to Pininfarina in 1961 by Presidential Decree) signed the deed founding Società Anonima Carrozzeria Pinin Farina in Turin."

Here's a a 1960 Ferrari brochure that has the single word:


or this


I couldn't find any earlier brochure images online. Can check books when I'm home!

This is from the 1950 factory Aurelia brochure.

I don't have a car to take a heater like that.  It was a friend who recently wondered if they were available as repros.

I've seen those windscreen heaters for sale over the years from specialist classic car places. I would think a good starting point might be a classic Mini specialists or a classic rallying place. I have seen old lightweight horse drawn carriages called 'spiders'. I read quite recently somewhere that the use of 'spyder' with a 'y' was invented by Alfa.

From Lancia and De Virgilio, p. 87:

Battista “Pinin” Farina’s surname was legally changed to “Pininfarina” on June 6, 1961, by a decree of the President of the Italian Republic ; the company name was changed on October 26, 1961.

Thanks to Paolo Giusti for this information.
