Footnotes

  • As redolent of La Dolce Vita Italy as the immortal Vespa scooter, the 'beach car' is most famously embodied by Ghia's 'Jolly'. A novel and quintessentially Italian concept, the Jolly transformed humble saloons such as FIAT's 500 and 600 from basic transport into conspicuous indicators of wealth. The Jolly found favour as courtesy transport for patrons of luxury hotels and golf courses or for use ashore after one had docked one's yacht on the Italian or French Riviera. Lacking doors and equipped with wickerwork seats, it was only practical as leisure transport, thus confirming its owner's status as someone who could afford a car 'just for fun'.

    Finished in red with basketwork seats, this charming replica of Carrozzeria Ghia's ever-popular Jolly has been painstakingly recreated using a 1970 FIAT 500 as the donor car. The conversion was carried out by an Italian company specialising in this work, which also transforms the modern FIAT 500 into a beach car, as can be found elsewhere in this catalogue. The body structure was reinforced and the complete vehicle comprehensively restored so that it is ready for use as a beach car. Virtually indistinguishable from the original but offered at a fraction of the cost, it comes with European registration documents and is homologated as an open car.

    1970 FIAT 500 Jolly Ghia Spiaggina Replica
    Telaio nr. to be advised

    • Replica fedele della macchina da spiaggia Jolly degli anni '50 / '60
    • Costruita in Italia, da un'azienda specializzata
    • Immatricolata in Europa
    • Omologata come macchina aperta

    I simboli della Dolce Vita in Italia sono l'immortale scooter Vespa e la "macchina da spiaggia", di cui la più famosa incarnazione è la "Jolly" realizzata dalla Ghia. Un concetto nuovo e tipicamente italiano, la Jolly ha trasformato delle umili utilitarie come la 500 e la 600 della FIAT, da vetture nate per soddisfarei bisogni basilari di spostamento a vistosi indicatori di ricchezza. La Jolly veniva usata, soprattutto, come trasporto di cortesia per i clienti degli alberghi di lusso ed i campi da golf o come "tender" terrestre dopo aver attraccato lo yacht sulla Riviera italiana o francese. Priva di porte e dotata di sedili in vimini, era utilizzabile solo come vettura da tempo libero, confermando così lo status del proprietario, capace di potersi permettere un'automobile "da divertimento".

    Rifinita in rosso con sedili in vimini, questa affascinante replica della famosissima Jolly della Carrozzeria Ghia è stata accuratamente ricreata utilizzando la base di una FIAT 500 del 1970. La conversione è stata effettuata da un'azienda italiana specializzata in questo lavoro, che trasforma anche la moderna FIAT 500 in una macchina da spiaggia, come si può vedere in un'altra parte di questo catalogo. La struttura del telaio è stata rinforzata ed il veicolo completo è stato completamente restaurato in modo che sia pronto per l'uso come una macchina da spiaggia. Praticamente indistinguibile dall'originale, ma offerto ad una frazione del costo, viene fornito con documenti di immatricolazione europei ed è omologato come autovettura aperta.
