At the 1960 Turin Auto Show, BMC's Italian partner Innocenti showed a small spider that was based off of the Austin Healey Sprite. OSI was the coachbuilder of these vehicles. The original Innocenti had the Frogeye's 948 cc engine. The Innocenti Spider originally sold well in Italy but they had a hard time competing against the cheaper Sprite in the export market. Sales had drastically dropped for the Spider, so Innocenti decided in 1965 to make a Coupe verrsion of these vehicles. These cars had an 1100 cc engine. The Coupe's bodywork was wider and longer than the Spider. Based on research from Bill Emerson, these cars were made from 1965 to 1968. There was also only 487 of these vehicles built.
