Unlikely as it may seem, this charming light commercial vehicle was manufactured by the legendary MV Agusta.
Although best known for its large-capacity four-cylinder four-strokes, MV Agusta built lightweight motorcycles throughout its manufacturing career and in its early days listed small two-strokes and even a scooter. The company even adapted one of its motorcycles to serve as a three-wheeled delivery truck - a motocarro - the first of these lightweight commercials appearing in 1954. Four-wheeled autocarro commercials followed. These were powered by a variety of MV-built engines, the largest of which was a 1,079cc twin-cylinder diesel. Producing 27bhp, the latter powered the 1100 D2 model, which arrived in 1957 and lasted in production into the early 1960s. Why MV bothered with this market is a mystery, as there was never any chance of them competing successfully with FIAT. It is estimated that only some 2,000 1100 D2s were made, of which very few survive.
Used to transport wine, beer, and water around the villages of Piedmont, this ultra-rare MV Agusta Autocarro is presented in remarkably original 'barn find' condition. Once restored, it would be the prefect way to transport your collection of MV Agusta motorcycles to the next meeting.
