For sale is my beautiful Fiat 500R (Luigi) which was the last model of the 500 produced, but has the beautiful round speedo, rather than the nasty plastic dash!
The 500R has all the style of the early models (round dash) but with the benefits of years of refinements including the slightly(!) punchier 594cc engine.
It starts and runs exceptionally well, and has never let me down. It drives very well with no clonks or rattles just the hum of 20 ish (!) bhp behind you!
Last serviced in December 2017, with new leads, plugs, distributor cap, with the old parts kept as handy spares. (I also have some other bits too.)
It’s had many new parts over the years (backed up with loads of history and invoices), such as:
2017: New headlamp assemblies, alternator belt, front and rear seat covers and carpet
2014: Suspension arms, stub axles, track rod ends, wheel cylinders all round, front wheel bearings, electronic ignition, brake lights, regulator, NSF upper arm, battery
2012: Dynamo changed for an alternator
2011: Various seals, door panels, seat padding, electronic distributor, sun roof
I have many previous MOTs and lots of bills, many from 500 experts.
The speedo is in kilometres, at 42,130 currently which translates to 26k miles, or thereabouts. I do not know how many times it has gone round the clock, perhaps never!
Structurally it’s rock solid underneath with no signs of the floorplan being welded, and has definitely benefited from the majority of its life in Italy before being imported in 2005.
Externally the car isn't perfect, with the Near side rear corner (pictured) requiring some work. It is however presentable, drives exceptionally well and with a bit of love and time would be very respectable.
You can’t help but smile driving Luigi, and with free road tax, no MOT required (although it has one to 10/2018) and £60 fully comp insurance you’ll have the last laugh too.
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.....
