Founded by Edoardo Bianchi in 1885 and now remembered primarily as a bicycle manufacturer, was also active inpassenger carmanufacturer from 1899. Bianchis were in general high-end luxury cars, made with high attention to detail. The company's factory inAbruzziwas destroyed by bombing duringWorld War II. Edoardo Bianchi himself died in 1946 in acar accident, and the ownership of the firm passed to his son, Giuseppe. Even though a new, modern facility was constructed inDesioafter the war, economic conditions forced Giuseppe not to resume passenger car production, but rather to focus onbicycles,motorcyclesandcommercial vehicles.Bianchi bicyclesare still manufactured.The first car to be produced by the new company was theBianchina, whose name was a tribute to Edoardo Bianchi's first 1899 car. The Bianchina was based onFiat 500mechanicals – with its two-cylinder, air-cooled engine mounted in the rear – but featured a completely new stylish body designed byLuigi Rapi, who was in charge of Fiat's special body unit and helped to set up production in Desio. With many premium design and equipment features, the Bianchina was an upscalecity car, positioned above the Fiat 500 in the market. Marketed as a "second vehicle in the household", and a luxurious "recreational vehicle", also being targeted at affluent middle-class women, it mirrored the increasing affluence in Italian society.
The first Bianchina rolled from the production lines in Desio on September 11, 1957 and had the unusual body style of a two-doorlandaulet, called"Trasformabile". It remained the sole body style until 1960, when a two-door"Cabriolet"fullconvertiblewas introduced, followed by a three-doorestateversion, the"Panoramica"and a two-doorsaloon, the"Berlina". Finally, twovanversions were launched: one resembling a two-seater version of thePanoramica, and another, with a raised and expanded cargo section.
