  Vehicle history: Early Giardinetta which ended up in Australia somehow. This is not a South African made Giardinetta where the conversion of the steering wheel from the LH-side to the RH-side was done by Alfa Romeo South Africa. This vehicle appears to have a "home made" steering wheel conversion. The vehicle was restored in 2010. Luckily besides some easy to replace details the vehicle was in completely original condition and features the very rare optional rear seat belts. The restoration log of this Giardinetta can be seen at www.carlosantoro.com After its restoration in November 2010 the car was feautured on an Australian auto show as the main event.
