The Giardinetta was never sold in the UK, in fact I don't think it was ever sold outside of Italy officially, though I could be wrong on that.
It was also heavier than the Sud saloon due to the extra bodywork and the extra strengthening that they had to give the chassis around the tailgate to compensate for the removal of the rear seat back box of the saloon to allow folding rear seats.
I never knew a van version was ever marketed, or was this one converted from a Giardinetta? Just under 6000 Giardinettas were built according to Tim's website.
There was also talk of a prototype Alfasud Spider but I don't think it ever saw the light of day did it?
