The Fiat 500 was a city car produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1957 and 1975. Launched as the Nuova 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 2.97 metres (9 feet 9 inches) long, and originally powered by an appropriately sized 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term small car and is considered one of the first city cars. The L or Lusso (1968–1972), was the penultimate model, the main change for the L is a much modernised interior, including a renewed dashboard which brought the Fiat 500 up to date. Greater comfort and style were provided in this new model for the new generation.
This is described by the vendor as being a car that has needed no restoration of any kind, really outstanding and in exceptional condition in every respect. It was sourced from southern Italy as a corrosion free example, and registered in the UK. The car has recently has a service and MOT, when it was fitted with a new set of tyres. It is said to drive exactly as it should, a car that can be purchased, admired and enjoyed with no hassle for the foreseeable future.
