THE FIAT JOLLY

The Jolly found favor as courtesy transport for patrons of luxury hotels and golf courses, such as Catalina Island off the coast of California, where a fleet of 32 Jollys provided taxi service or, as initially intended, for use ashore after one had docked one's yacht on the Italian or French Riviera. Lacking doors and equipped with waterproof wickerwork seats, the Jolly was only practical as leisure transport, thus confirming its owner's status as someone who could afford a car 'just for fun' (indeed, the Jolly was roughly twice the price of the base model it was derived from). Among the list of Jolly owners in the day are jet setters such as John Wayne, Grace Kelly, Henry Ford II, and even President Lyndon Johnson.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Acquired right here in Greenwich from the prestigious Italian Car Collection 7 years ago, this delightful Jolly is once again gracing our stage. Prior to entering the Italian Car Collection, the jolly had been in the previous ownership for approximately 10 years in Syracuse, New York and during that period had received an engine rebuild and a new canvas top. The 500 was noted to have originally been used at the 1964 World's Fair to transport elderly or disabled persons. Although credible, it is not a claim endorsed by any photographic evidence, but would clearly account for the American import format large headlights that it wears.

After enjoying the charismatic beach cruiser for a number of years, in 2015 the consignor decided to breathe new life into the little Fiat by installing a brand new, complete, Fiat 500 650cc Sport Engine and clutch assembly. Shortly after upgrading the powertrain, the brakes were overhauled to ensure the stopping power could handle the additional horsepower supplied by the new engine. On file are receipts for the parts ordered from Italian Auto Parts Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia, adding up to nearly $5,000. Most importantly however, the engine and parts that were removed from the car have all been kept and will accompany the sale.

Aesthetically, the combination of its deep blue-green metallic paint and dark wicker seats is an absolute winner. Beautifully presented inside and out, this charming Jolly would be a great choice for the ranch, beach, yacht club, or racing paddock, and will surely initiate smiles and conversations wherever it goes.
