Dévoilée au Salon de Paris en 1953, la TV (Turismo Veloce) était la version haute performance de la nouvelle Fiat 1100 berlina. La puissance du 4 cylindres de 1 098 cm3 a été portée de 36 à 50 ch, donnant une vitesse maximale de 135 km/h à la TV. Un phare unique au centre de la calandre était un des traits caractéristiques de la TV qui pouvait être commandée en deux tons.
Cette charmante 1100 TV n'a jamais été restaurée, trouvée seulement récemment dans un garage où on pense qu'elle a passé son temps inutilisée depuis 1982. Nettoyée et révisée avec soin, la voiture a été dotée d'un nouvel embrayage et d'un nouveau réservoir (facture dans le dossier) et est prête à repartir. Elle a parfaitement fonctionné lors d'un parcours d'essai. Aussi incroyable que cela puisse paraître la voiture n'a jamais été repeinte. La peinture originale est encore en bon état, tout comme l'intérieur, joliment patiné, tandis que le pare-brise d'origine porte encore les autocollants d'usine d'origine. Le compteur kilométrique affiche un total d'environ 92 000 km, qui pourrait bien être d'origine. Peinte en deux tons de bleu avec un intérieur de drap gris, la voiture est vendue avec un Estrato Cronologico italien qui ne montre qu'un propriétaire depuis que la voiture a été retrouvée au début des années 1980. Très important, la voiture est éligible aux Mille Miglia et de ce fait représente un moyen relativement bon marché de participer à ce prestigieux événement.

Mille Miglia eligible
1956 Fiat 1100 TV Berlina
Chassis no. 240521
Engine no. 250504

Premiered at the Paris Salon in 1953, the 'TV' (Turismo Veloce) was the higher-performance version of the newly introduced FIAT 1100 Berlina (saloon). Power of the 1,098cc four-cylinder engine was raised from 36 to 50bhp, giving the TV a top speed of 135km/h. A single spot lamp on the centre of the radiator grille was a distinguishing feature of the TV, which could be ordered with two-tone paintwork.
This charming 1100 TV has never been restored, having been found only recently in a garage where it is believed to have sat unused since 1982. Carefully cleaned and serviced, the car has also received a new clutch and fuel tank (invoice on file) and is ready to be used again. It performed keenly on a short inspection and test drive. Amazingly, this car has never been repainted. The original paintwork remains in good condition, as does the nicely patinated original interior, while the believed-original windscreen still has the factory stickers attached. The odometer displays a total of circa 92,000 kilometres, which may very well be genuine. Finished in two-tone blue with grey cloth interior, the car is offered with Italian Estratto Cronologico recording only one owner from new until the car was laid up in the early 1980s. Importantly, the 1100 TV is eligible for the Mille Miglia and thus represents a relatively inexpensive means of participation in this prestigious historic event.
