Vintage & Prestige Classic Cars are delighted to offer for sale this charming 1959 Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile Coupe.
Originally a bicycle manufacturer and arguably best known as a maker of fine racing motorcycles, Edoardo Bianchi built his first automobile in the early 1900s. A wide variety of models was manufactured over the next 30 years, though by 1940 the firm was concentrating on motorcycles and commercial vehicles. Car manufacture resumed in 1957 under FIAT auspices, Autobianchi's debut model being the Bianchina, based on FIAT's new 500. Positioned up-market from the FIAT, the Bianchina debuted as the Transformabile coupé, with full-length folding sunroof. The Bianchina showed clear signs of American influence, its size excepted, exemplified by two-tone paintwork, whitewall tyres, and plentiful chrome. In 1960, two new models were introduced: a Cabriolet and the Panoramica estate car, while a fourth version, the Quattroposti saloon, arrived the following year.
Arguably much more elegant than Ghia's 'Jolly' derivatives of the FIAT 500 and 600, this charming Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile is a rare 1st Series model, easily distinguishable by the two front air intakes below the indicators. Recently restored by the previous owner, it has recently benefited from a comprehensive restoration and as such is described as in generally excellent condition. Beautifully finished in light blue with white/red vinyl interior, the car is currently undergoing UK registration, and will surely turn heads wherever it goes.
