Accosato was founded by Ernesto Accosato which was a small coach builder company which carried out the build of very limited number of cars, which opened its headquarters in Turin, via Beaulard 61.. For some models they relied on the collaboration with the designer Michelotti. It was also one of the biggest producers of Italian funeral vehicles.
The first works of Accossato were transformations based on Fiat Topolino. Some of his creations were in fact the transformation of small cars so as to accommodate no more than two but four passengers.
The launch of the Fiat 1400 in 1950 resulted in a series of ideas on possible reinterpretations on this basis. Thus, in 1951, the Turin sedan provided Accossato for the creation of a two-door sedan and a funeral vehicle. The funeral means would be the main field of activity of the Turin bodywork. During the years of Carrozzeria Accossato's work, Giovanni Michelotti was also co-operating, who in the immediate postwar period had also opened a bodywork.
However, there were also outstanding off-road vehicles for Accossato, particularly on the basis of 1100/103 and 1900 (see photos of the Fiat 1900 Coupé Accossato).
The 600 Week-end was also very particular, an unusual interpretation of the Turin occupation of the 1950s and 1960s, which became a sort of coupe equipped with a small rear side door, behind the main driver's door, which helped to facilitate Small loads. In 1956, Ernesto Accossato ceased to dedicate himself to the creation of off-road vehicles in favor of the only funerary production.
After the founder discontinued the activity, it was passed to a former co-worker, Antonio Palmaro, who began converting sedans into pickups. Main production was on Fiat 131, Fiat 132, Fiat Argenta, but also a]the new Fiat Ritmo, Fiat Regata and later, the Fiat Tempra, Fiat Scudo and Fiat Doblo. The workshop moved from Turin close to Casale Monferrato.
