  Vehicle history: This early Giardinetta from the first production year underwent a full restoration. The current owner (status Oct.'14) is the second owner and owns the vehicle since 2010. The car had been standing outside since 1984 which lead to severe rust damage. The car was not only rusted due to standing outside but also battered as can be seen in some of the pictures below. After a meticulous restoration to a pristine condition the car was finished just in time to be exhibited on the Auto Motor D'Epoca event in Padova from October 23rd till 26th 2014 as part of the Italian Alfasud club stand together with a first series Alfasud Berlina and a first series Alfasud TI. It was restored to the original factory specification with the only exception being the second series Alfasud plastic air intake on top of the bonnet. Potentially this feature was added by the owner to improve the airflow into the interior.
