It's been on before and has been for sale for quite awhile I think.

It;s the one that has been in Classic car buyer for the last couple of weeks.
The ad there sez it is 18,000 miles, T&T rebuilt engine and 5 speed gearbox.

Wasn't sure the 5 speed fitted to the 900cc pushrod engine it should have fitted but perhaps some vandal has fitted a FIRE engine. At least they haven't painted it green.!!!

I thought the Marbella 903cc came with a 5 speed box, but the 843cc with a 4 speed?

The 903cc Fiat engine certainly coupled to a 5 speed box ok, as I have one in the mk1 VIP.

Re: Terra Convertible [1982: no reg.]

Just goes to show what I know.
I thought the guy I bought mine off mentioned something about a 4 sp box when he was telling me how he scrapped the original eng/box

Off topic but why were the FIRE engined Bianca's 4 sp?

Plenty of FIRE engine mk2s were 4 speed, especially that age.

I'll probably get corrected here, but I think the Bianca was based on the 1000CL. The 1000CL had a 4 speed box, and the Bianca was the same mechanically (trim the same too I think). Lots of the FIRE engined Panda's had 4 speed in the mid-late '80's - the Super had 5 speed as part of its "luxury" spec. Back in those days most cheap cars had 4 speed, with 5 speed being reserved for the social climbers!

I concur that our 1000CL was a 4 speed if it helps

Re: Terra Convertible [1982: no reg.]

The daft thing is, I had a Bianca for about 2 years (in the mid 90's) and always thought that it was 5 sp. Except for when I was driving it I hope.
So whenever I have read that there were no 5 speed Bianca's I have tended towards the smug smile thinking I had owned one.
However, last week I asked one of my daughters (who remembers that sort of thing) that very question "4 or 5" and was soundly told that it was indeed 4 speed and how could I have forgotten.

I stand humbled and admonished; though I stand by the wonderful sensation I enjoyed for a couple of months when I thought that 'I was right' and absolutely everyone else in the world 'was wrong'

You were right as long as the 5 consisted of 4 forward & 1 reverse.

Yep. My Bianca definitely had five gears. At the time there was only three of us who had five speed gearboxes in our cars. The other two being my mate Jamie who had a Nova SR and Liz who had a Cinquecento Sporting.

Re: Terra Convertible [1982: no reg.]

And to think I had one up on my mates when I bought my Stilo in 2009 because it had a 6 speed gearbox

Was something going from a 4 speed to a 6 speed, too much choice
