This example dates from 1958 and is a first series model of which very few were built, and today it is a very rare survivor. The Trasformabile was essentially a semi-cabriolet with an unfolding fabric roof as opposed to the full convertible version. In its day the Trasformabile was considered not as desirable as the cabriolet version, the result of which is that the large majority of them were scrapped. Chassis 110B 010511 boasts not only its original engine but also the original Udine registration plates and logbook. It is unusual to find an example restored to such an exceptional standard: no stone was left unturned in the quest to return the car to its original state. The shell was returned to bare metal and repainted in the original two tone colour scheme of grey and blue and the fabric for the seats, headlining and door panels was specially recreated copying the original patterns. Mechanically everything has been returned to an 'as new' standard. White-wall Pirelli Sempione tyres were sourced and the attention to detail included having the original decals inside the engine compartment recreated in order to complete a perfect restoration. Even the original tool roll and jack have been restored! Finding a better example would be a challenge indeed!
