BIANCHI S5

Tourer, sports tourer, sports coupé, saloon, convertible saloon.

Fiat 503/509 lookalike, only with three-bearing pushrod engine, 12-volt coil ignition, and always four-speed 'box. Well made, but heavy and undergeared: artillery wheels on early ones, wire only from '31 when British special coachwork dropped and saloons only sold over here. Bigger engines and unit gearboxes, 1933. Rare outside Italy.
