Description

The Autobianchi 500 Giardiniera was the Autobianchi version of the Fiat 500 Giardiniera, whose assembly was transferred to the house of Desio from 1966.

Compared to the original version of Fiat, launched in 1960 in terms of construction, the D version of the 500 sedan, there were no changes.

Initially the car retained even the brand Fiat in fact Autobianchi assembled also a part of the 500 D production on the Bianchina lines (which was derived from the small 500).

In 1968, after the launch of the F 500 series, the Giardiniera took the Autobianchi brand. In addition to the specifications of the F, excluding changes in the doors, which, unlike the sedan, will always remain “suicide doors” (that is hinged at the back), the Giardiniera adopted air intake grilles (the ones on the rear supports) black (instead steel colour) and the outside rear view mirror.

The example that we have  is a Special bi-colour version. Finished in blue and cream, this 500 Giardiniera presented in good condition.  It comes with its Italian registration papers and one of its famous previous owners was the famous Italian journalist Paolo Del Debbio.
