Replacement for FIAT’s much-loved 500 ‘Topolino’, the Nuova 500 debuted in 1957. A radical departure from its predecessor’s essentially pre-war design, FIAT’s new baby featured unitary construction, an opening fabric roof and all-independent suspension while carrying its engine at the rear. Introduced in 1968 alongside the standard 500F, the deluxe 500L, while mechanically identical, came with exterior cosmetic enhancements and an improved interior featuring new instrument panel, seats and floor covering.
An immense success for FIAT, almost 3,000,000 of these adorable little cars had been sold when production ceased in 1975. The original FIAT 500 remains as popular today as it ever was, and recently was voted ‘Sexiest Car’ by the readers of Top Gear magazine.
Delivered new to Italy in 1970, this delightful little Fiat 500L has had just one family owner, before being brought to the UK by the current vendor, who drove all the way himself!
Described as being in excellent overall condition, and showing around 30,000 miles from new, this delightful little Fiat is offered with service records, an Italian registration certificate, also UK MoT and V5. Finished in the classic combination of dark blue with a red interior, this fantastic little Fiat cannot fail to put a smile on your face.
