Description

It’s widely believed that the Fiat 500 was Fiat’s first rear-engined post-war people’s car, but it was, in fact, predated by the 600, or Seicento. Produced from 1955 to 1969, it measured only 321cm in length but could still accommodate four people and their luggage. It was such a success in post-war Italy that some 2.6 million were built at Fiat’s Mirafiori plant. The 600’s popularity was not, however, confined to Italy alone, as a wide range of countries, from Russia to Argentina, built the car under licence. Power came from a water-cooled 4-cylinder motor which could propel the little Fiat to 59mph with the 633cc engine, or to 68mph with the later 767cc variant. In Spain the Fiat 600 became an icon of the Spanish Miracle.
Manufactured by Fiat at the end of 1997 as a replacement for the Fiat 500, the 600 retained the same engine, chassis and general dimensions, however gained a minor increase in length.
This charming example in white retains all its former glory and presents a bundle of fun. An opportunity not to be missed.
