Footnotes

  • 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. Carried at the rear, the half-litre engine was an air-cooled overhead-valve twin. The basic 500's austerity was not well received however, prompting the introduction of a revised and better equipped version endowed with refinements such as hubcaps, wind-down windows, upholstered rear seat and column-mounted switchgear stalks. This process of step-by-step improvement would continue throughout the 500's life. Introduced in 1968 alongside the standard 500F, the deluxe 500L, while mechanically identical, came with exterior cosmetic enhancements and an improved interior featuring a new instrument panel, seats and floor covering.

    This left-hand drive 500L was imported into the UK from Italy in 2003 and since its arrival has had only two former keepers, covering a couple of thousand kilometres in this country. 'SUF 970H' is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition, benefiting from a new full-length sunroof and new seat coverings. The car is offered with a file of bills and expired MoT certificates, current road fund licence, MoT to October 2013 and Swansea V5C document. A total of 35,600 kilometres is currently displayed on the odometer.
