  Vehicle history: This Giardinetta has been owned since 1990 by a Belgian gentleman who offered the vehicle for sale in 2009 shortly. In March 2012 the son of the owner who offered the car for sale took over the vehicle and it is currently awaiting restoration (April 2012). Even though there are quite some items to work on the car is in original condition which should simplify the restoration process to some extent. The new owner offered the car for sale again soon potentially caused by the extent of work required on the car. In 2014 the car was sold to a collector in Switzerland who also owns the AS*5003274*904B2 and is currently (June 2016) undergoing an extensive restoration. The corrosion damage to the car was very extensive and many hours of welding work were required to get a healthy base again.
