Autobianchi's first model was the Bianchina, directed mainly at a feminine clientele, specifically from Italian high society who wanted a small car, easy to drive. The Bianchina was based on the Fiat 500's platform and mechanicals. This sedan model Berline F is relatively rare in France, produced between 1965 and 1969, with around 38,500 units built. This is a four-seater version of the Bianchina and is just 3.02 meters long, and was named Lutèce in France.
This car was used until 1989, and still has its year sticker on the windscreen. It was then stored and was then fully repainted a shade of cream in 2014, receiving a new interior in caramel, and was the subject of numerous jobs (plus new 5 Michelin tires, new brakes, new headlamps, shocks, chrome, etc) and the 499cc engine was replaced by a 650cc unit which is more tractable for an urban use. The car is being sold with its cover and has a front bumper protection, a rare original accessory. It is now being used on the Côte d'Azur in the South of France to get to the market on Sunday mornings. As its owner has acquired two other cars recently, he has no choice but to let go this one, to make space for the others in his collection...
