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 of the chassis/body, 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 switch-gear 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 charming little FIAT was comprehensively restored in 2002 and is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition. Attractively finished in light blue with black interior, it sits on new Borrani chromed wire wheels and is ready for the skiing season, coming complete with a luggage rack and wooden skis. This all-time classic FIAT 500L is offered with a copy of the Italian libretto, ASI, and some photographic records of its restoration.
