THE FIAT 600

In 1955 FIAT replaced its revolutionary Topolino small saloon, which had been around in one form or another since 1936, introducing the successor '600' model at that year's Geneva Salon. Historically significant as the first rear-engined FIAT, the 600 was a masterpiece of automotive packaging, cramming accommodation for four into the same 2,000mm wheelbase as the outgoing two-seater Topolino, which it undercut on price. The integral chassis/body featured independent suspension all round, while the 633cc water-cooled four-cylinder overhead-valve engine produced 22bhp, which was good enough for a top speed of 100km/h. The most significant upgrade to this outstandingly successful design occurred in 1960 with the introduction of the 600D, which featured a 767cc engine, altered gearing and greatly improved performance. Although conceived as basic transport for the masses, the 600 would prove to be extremely capable on the racetrack, where examples modified by Carlo Abarth regularly turned in giant-killing performances, dominating their class and humbling larger-engined rivals.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Known for their charming aesthetics and lively driving experience they remain incredibly popular collector cars. This particular example was formerly an original California 'Black Plate' car which underwent a rotisserie restoration some years ago. That work renewed its paintwork in the original color scheme we see the car today, and a completing grey hue was used for the interior. At some point in time, as for many of these cars it is believed that the engine was replaced with a contemporary FIAT unit.

Today, its older refurbishment has a little age to it and the car may best be described as a good driver quality car, but it remains in good usable order and is a handsome archetypal version of the model.
