Description

- Registered in 1966, and sold directly by Ghia to the first owner, Giustina Ltd. of Turin. Very rare lsquo Giardiniera rsquo version. Original 1966 number plates of the Province of Turin, the logbook renewed in 1994. There is a chronological extract on which the first sale by Ghia and the price are reported.
- White colour, restored more than twenty years ago and still in excellent condition, it preserves all the specific details of the model and the car warranty booklet. Bought by current owner in 2004 and used sporadically in its first years.
- Mechanically complete, but it has been stationary in a dry place for several years. It needs a general inspection before it can be restarted. Revision not in progress.
- The timeless lsquo spiaggina rsquo had enormous success, although production never reached reach one hundred units, but became famous thanks to the personalities who flaunted it along the streets of the C ocirc te d #39 Azur, including Giovanni Agnelli and Aristotle Onassis, making it an authentic object of worship. In 1966, the last year of production, Ghia produced the last examples using standard bumpers and tubular frame seats with a plastic cord wrapped around them.
