  Vehicle history: This car was offered for sale at the end of 2009 in Italy. The car seemed in pretty good condition at the time it was offered for sale besides the broken right hand rear light reflector. Some items like the black coloured rearview mirrors on the doors, the headrest to the chairs and the Alfa 33 alloy wheels are later additions. A peculiar item is that this vehicle was offered for sale in Italy and somewhat later the pictures of the Italian ad were used to offer the car for sale in Japan at Portal Classics Japan. The Giardinetta was never for sale in Japan and therefore doesn't have a type approval, in addition the steering wheel is on the left hand side which is the opposite of Japan so what the intention was of offering it for sale in Japan is unclear. The car was purchased by an Italian gentleman who is currently in the process of a restoration (status Apr.'13).

This car was first registered in Germany and imported to Italy in 2009. It may have been in use by a fire brigade in Germany although this information is not confirmed. Shortly after the import to Italy the car was in a small accident and just before it was about to be scrapped it was saved by the current Italian owner who is planning a restoration. Besides the minor accident damage there are some rust issues present which need attending to.
