The birth of the Spiaggina cars took place in the immediate postwar, due to the creativity of some Italian coachbuilders.
Generally the changes were made on the customer's ideas, and were the most varied. Usually they included the removal of the roof and its replacement with a cotton canvas awning, the installation of canvas or wicker seats and the elimination of the side and rear glass surfaces, as well as the access doors.
The name “Spiaggina” derives from one of the first cars of this type, the Savio Spiaggina from 1958, built on a Fiat Nuova 500 platform and mechanics and designed by Mario Boano.
The car, despite being produced in only two copies, immediately became famous in magazines around the world for being photographed with its owners, Gianni Agnelli and Aristotle Onassis.
Probably, the reference to the folding beaches used in bathing establishments also contributed to the affirmation of the term, given that at the time of their presentation, journalists compared this type of cars to "beach furniture".
From the second half of the 1950s to the 1990s, the Spiaggine were built in small series by the main Italian coachbuilders, including the Moretti body shop in Turin which, after the successes of the 127 and 126 Midimaxi, created the only beach with traction. integral: the Moretti Panda Rock, produced until December 1989.
