  Vehicle history: An early Giardinetta which ended up in Sweden somehow. It was most probably sold initially sold in Germany and later imported into Sweden. The second owner in Sweden, who bought the vehicle after a 10 year out of order condition including a 2 year outside storage, conducted a very extensive restoration was executed to get the car back in a roadworthy condition. The photos below are all courtesy of the former Swedish owner who carried out the restoration. A Verde Mateze 4-door Alfasud was sacrificed to replace the completely rotten chassis of this Giardinetta. In the pictures below it is clearly visible a Verde Mateze Alfasud chassis was combined with the Rosso Corallo del Greco Giardinetta base vehicle. The amount of work put into this car is amazing. The car was offered for sale in Sweden (status Feb.'12). The car was sold to a new owner in the city of Stockholm.
