|“Two-cylinder in line engine, 499 cm3 displacement, 13 HP. What beautiful dreams are made of.” (Heritage, fiat.com)Its dimensions are 9 feet 9 inches long, 4.5 feet wide and 4.3 feet tall, the Fiat 500 has been argument ally the most iconic car in the world. In its early stages of production, it was the perfect after-war car, with very low fuel consumption due to its weight and size, and perfect to nip in and out of town with.Nowadays, times have changed, but the needs for a small car haven’t, and a classic Fiat 500 is just perfect as such. Low fuel consumptions and small sizes are perfect for both everyday use round villages/towns and Sunday drives with the roof down.
This example is a 1968 Fiat 500 “F”, well known for it’s round speedo, first registered in the UK on the 17th of January 1995. Since then, it had 4 formal keepers.
It looks absolutely stunning, in a trendy light blue finish paint. Red brand new vinyl interiors with white ‘half-moon’ seat covers which brings back the original interior from the ’60s.
The car starts first time, with a refurbished starter motor which will not give you any troubles for many winters. The front boot has also been under restoration, with a respray of the fuel tank, clean up and an original-looking vinyl carpet, just a touch of class to put your shopping!
Fuel filters and tubed have also been replaced, this makes sure any old residues of dust and dirt will not trouble the performance of the 2 cylinder engine.
Headlights, tail lights, indicators and windshield wipers are all in great working order.
The car has been parked for almost a year, it has been SORNed and it needs an MOT and service to be back on the road.
I believe a brand new master cylinder will need to be replaced to pass the MOT, which will be included with the car.
Floor pans and panels are in great conditions, you will have no problems.
