The car was presented to the public on September 16, 1957 at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.

If they are in good shape, these Bianchinas can command a decent amount of coin, which is not surprising, as the Fiat 500 on which they’re based are highly prized as well. Given current market conditions, it’s safe to assume that this car will probably see a final bid of somewhere around $20,000 to $25,000.
