BIANCHI / ITALY

Edoardo Bianchi started his car production in Milano / Italy in 1905.
Vintage BIANCHIS were conservative, but by 1922 they had dohc, with dual magneto ignition and 90 bhp.

In 1955 FIAT bought the factory to build the new AUTOBIANCHI, a car using FIAT components with a little bit more horsepower.

The emblems are showing the eagle of the Duke of Savoy ( Savoia ).
Inside the eagle you see the white cross in a red oval representing the crest of Savoia.

Here I present you a real piece of art. These emblems are made by using a pattern, a very  exigent technique.
A real highlight of my collection !

  1. It looks like many people here are looking for the original manufacturers specifications. I wanted to tell everyone about VehicleBios.com. It has free access to all specs for almost every auto and truck ever built! Hope this helps some people. Thank you, Rashida, Ten Doves"
