IN VERONA, THE FIAT 850 COUPÉ "VIGNALE"

The popular car in the vision of a large coachbuilder at the Registro Fiat Italiano stand


Vignale was a well-loved coachbuilder in the automotive world in the 50’s and 60’s. The company worked with various automobile manufacturers, such as Ferrari and Fiat. After working with the Turin-based company, taking its cue from a coach model with a strong social impact like the 850, the coachbuilder’s versions were born from the sedan, convertible and coupé design styles. Specifically, the coupé retains the same floor, water-cooled rear engine, 4-speed plus reverse, front disk and rear drum brakes, as well as the interior, which is used for the Fiat sedan itself. As noted, obviously, the radical change is the body, which introduces a design entirely different from the coupé made “inhouse” by Fiat. Alfred Vignale’s peculiarity was always searching for elegant shapes that, independent of the kind of vehicle, always had to be distinguished by class and beauty. Indeed, the Fiat 850 coupé "Vignale" has superior automotive features, like the absence of the edge of the doorglass, the outline marker lamps when the door opened, the inside-opening of the rear engine bonnet and the crossed windscreen wipers. The model shown by the Registro Fiat Italiano is completely original, as the chassis was built in Turin in 1965, while the coach once completed was registered in Padua in 1966 and still has the original plates. The coach is registered and certified by Registro Fiat Italiano and the 850 Spider Club and participates in numerous shows and rallies.
