The Fiat 500 was produced between 1957 and 1975 with limited
production of the Fiat 500K estate continuing until 1977. It was
designed by Dante Giacosa and, despite its diminutive size, the 500
proved to be an enormously practical and popular vehicle throughout
Europe; capturing the hearts and minds of the public. Launched as
the Nuova (new) 500, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town
car.  Measuring only three meters long and originally powered
by a tiny 479cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined
the term 'small car' and is considered one of the first city
cars.

This righthand drive, low mileage Fiat 500L was supplied new in
the UK in 1969 to Julie Yvonne Alexander an actress who appeared in
the early St. Trinian's film and has been in her family ownership
until very recently, this is verified by the registration document.
Finished in maroon with black interior, this Fiat 500L is supplied
with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate
which expires in October 2017 and a history file including MoT
certificates which confirm the mileage. Fiats 500 have enjoyed a
huge increase in popularity over recent years and are an ideal
introduction into classic car ownership, being cheap to run with
excellent availability of spare parts. They also take up very
little space!
