SIAM di Tella was a large industrial corporation located in Buenos Aires and founded in 1911, manufacturing a wide range of industrial equipment and electrical consumer goods. Under the name SIAM the company started producing Lambretta scooters under license from 1954 calling them Siambrettas. The first versions of the Lambretta LD were produced only using imported Italian parts assembled in Argentina. There was then a transitional range using Italian engines in Argentinian made bodies and finally complete Argentinian made scooters. The fully Argentinian LD models started off with the ‘Standard’ range and then went on to produce the ‘Deluxe’. Siambretta went on to make other models in line with Italian range changes including a TV175, three wheelers and 48cc mopeds. The company ceased Siambretta production in 1967.
This example is a later example of the LD type scooters and is one of the latter Argentinian manufactured ‘Deluxe’ models with its cheese shaped external gear selector box. She appears to be complete and is adorned with many original and rare South American accessories that are rarely seen in Europe and are highly collectible items in their own right. These include a double leg shield trim, decorative front bumper and side panel vent covers.
