One that is synonymous with Italy along with Pasta and the Leaning Tower of Pisa is the Fiat 500 or lovingly named the ‘Cinquecento’. The Fiat 500 with its somewhat roomy cabin with 4 seats underlaying its small dimensions, tiny engine of less than 500cc and amazing turning circle, was considered to be the first ‘city car’ of which many manufactures have followed suit. Its timeless styling has even lived onto the modern Fiat 500 being produced today.
This fiat 500 has been in the loving care of its current owner for more than 20 years. During the first few years of ownership it underwent a full bare metal restoration including a new interior. The paint in non-original being a metallic colour that brings out the curves of the body incredibly well in the sunlight. Though this is an older restoration, the Fiat has only been used for Sunday outings and presents incredibly well with a few minor paint imperfections. The clutch has been replaced with a heavy-duty item and the drive shafts have been upgraded with thicker units for strength to handle the engines monstrous power output of 17hp. The 500 drives as it should that gives a big grin to the drivers face zipping around town.
This little ‘Cinquecento’ is great fun to drive and attracts a lot of attention where ever it goes with charm and character in abundance. Don’t miss out on this unique Fiat 500!
