The Autobianchi Bianchina was built from 1957–1969, and was based on the hugely popular Fiat 500. It was available in 5 different body types: Berlina (saloon), Cabriolet (roadster), Trasformabile (convertible), Panoramica (station wagon), and Furgoncino (van).
The car was presented to the public on 16 September 1957 at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
From 1957 – 1962, the Trasformabile version was built. There were 4 series, and in total 35,500 were built.
This 1960 example, from the south of Italy, is a series two car. It has recently been recommissioned to a very high standard, where all perished parts were replaced, and the car was resprayed and re upholstered in the original colours. The engine was also removed and rebuilt.
As you would expect, the bodywork and underside are straight and without any rust, and the engine and gearbox perform without fault.
This excellent little car will come with a NOVA, and valid UK V5 and MOT.
