Carrozzeria Vignale was established in 1948 by Alfredo Vignale after he and his brother rebodied a Fiat 1100 and this attracted attention. Fiat 1100 and Cisitalia 202 designs were then produced to order. In the 1950s Giovanni Michelotti came to Vignale and worked on many designs, whilst still working on his own, notably with Standard and Triumph. In 1969 Vignale was taken over by De Tomaso and ceased to exist in 1974.
