*Very original example
*Formally exhibited in the Fiat Museum
*Rebuilt engine


Based on the original Fiat 500, the Autobianchi Bianchina debuted in 1957 as a small yet sophisticated car that was offered in saloon, cabriolet, estate and van configurations. This 1965 example, presented in an excellent condition, was exhibited in the Fiat 500 museum in Garlenda on the Italian Riviera before its life in the UK. Since its arrival and previous ownership, the car has been kept very well and has been serviced regularly by its enthusiast owner, who purchased the car at the Bonhams 2016 Goodwood members meeting. Prior to the vendors ownership, the vehicle was kept as part of a private collection and used sparingly and solely for the summer. This is a very original example that is thought to be one of the cleanest and unmolested Bianchina's left on the road. The previous owner undertook an engine rebuild of its original 499cc engine, which required work due to brittle gaskets. During the rebuild the engine was bored out from 67.4mm to 70mm to give it a little extra power. The bodywork, bumpers and all the external and internal features are believed to be original. Even the windscreen stickers and supplying dealer sticker (Commissionaria Autobianchi, Ginno Nanni, Pistoria, Italia) are still in place. The car also comes with its original owner's manual, Italian service book and registration documents, spare key, copy correspondence, V5C, and photographs of its time in the museum.
