Cabriolet
Chassis #: 025184
Sold for $44,000 at 2013 RM Auctions - Arizona.
Edvardo Bianchi was third behind Fiat and Lancia in Italian car production during the 1920s. In 1955, after forming an alliance with Fiat and Pirelli, the company changed its name to Autobianchi. Their first vehicle produced under this name was Bianchina. The design was based on the Fiat and offered many luxury features not found on the standard 500. The first body style was the 'transformabile', or semi-convertible. During the production lifespan, only 10,000 of these examples were produced.

The Bianchina had a top speed of 60 mph and an estimated range of 300 miles. Fuel economy was rather impressive, rated at 50 mpg.

This example has been treated to a high-quality restoration. It is finished in red with cream accents and is wearing a new, black fold down top. The inside is trimmed in tan and cream.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Scottsdale sale. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $44,000 including buyer's premium.
