The 1960 Geneva show saw the debut of what was arguably the prettiest of all the models, the Bianchina Special Convertible. It was a little luxury car, with a luxury price, and it was immediately accepted by the fashionable jet setters as a second car or runabout. Designer Luigi Rapi drew a well-proportioned shape, highlighted by a side spear chrome moulding. Interior fittings were more attractive. The indicators were fitted separately below the headlights, not on the bumper guards. The cooling slots on the side below the doors and the chrome borders below the body edge were eliminated, and the windscreen was more angular. The model went through three series with minor alterations and improvements, in total 9,350 units of the Bianchina Cabriolet were built.
This lovely Bianchina was sold new near Pavia, in the north of Italy, and remained in Italy until today, covering only 61,400 km during its life. This car was restored during the 80s and has just passed the Italian MOT and comes to the selling with its Italian Libretto where is possible to see that the car is matching number: chassis 009662 and engine 050243.
A very good opportunity to buy one of the cutest cars ever built.
