Later career On the return from his first trip to Italy in 1783, Reichardt stopped in Vienna, where he met Kaiser Joseph II (Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor) and Christoph Willibald Gluck.

"Kelly", Jr. ''American Cars 1946-1959'' (Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Coy, 2008), p.579. the Italia was based on the Hudson Jet platform (automobile platform) and running gear but had its own unique body and interior.
