Description

The Fiat 126 is a car produced by Fiat from 1972 to 2000. It was the last car with rear engine produced by Turin company. Stylistically derived from the concept car ‘City Taxi’, realised by Pio Manzu in 1968, the Fiat 126 was presented with the task of replacing the ‘500’ at the 1972 Turin Motor Show.

The most important advancement over the ‘500’ was a newly designed body shell to improve safety and comfort. The engine was the well-known air-cooled twin mounted rear overhang found in the ‘500’, however, the interior instrumentation and controls were new and improved. The 126 was available with either completely closed bodywork (change from the ‘500’) or with canvas sunroof (typical of its predecessor).

As reported in its registration paper, this Fiat 126 was modified in 1995 by the body shop Gavello which is near Turin. Only a few 126s were modified under this specification, it’s believed less than 100, and not all have survived to this day. It is offered with its Italian papers. A really fun car ready to be enjoyed!
