The iconic classic Fiat 500 needs no introduction as the instantly recognisable and cheeky Italian city car. This example is finished in beautiful and vivacious Ivory Pearlescent metallic boasts a bright and vibrant shine which catches the light almost psychedelically.

The underside is clean and free from excess applied underseal to allow easy inspection of the structural integrity. Delightful and super cute in every respect.

Design simplicity in its truest form and fashionably chic.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The two cylinder air cooled rear mounted engine thrums along beautifully having the recommended and desirable 126 transplant. Visually almost identical it offers better maximum torque and flexibility and livelier acceleration for real world town driving. Sought after upgrades include a Giannini aluminium sump. 23bhp with a top speed of 62mph is transferred through the upgraded 4-speed synchromesh gearbox, a common conversion that offers far easier usage than the original fitment.
WHEELS, TYRES, BRAKES
Genuine and desirable Mille Miglia polished rim alloy wheels are in pristine order with matching 125 R12 tyres, all showing virtually full tread. Recent works to the hydraulic brakes on all four wheels give adequate performance compared to modern standards.
This iconic 1970 Fiat 500L was sourced from Italy in 2015 by its only UK owner, Italian born Mr Saverio Fasulo, an avid classic Fiat fan wanting to relive his childhood days spent travelling in these iconic cars. Sourced from the warm and dry climate of Bovino in Italy, the car arrived in the UK whereby it has been enjoyed at classic car shows and undergone extensive maintenance including full engine servicing and brake overhaul. Now wanting for nothing and in superb working order, this little Fiat is ready to enjoy and its cheeky character is certainly disproportionate with its dinky size!
