Fiat 500D 1962 Concours Restored ‘Nut & Bolt’ / Perfection! For Sale

Fiat 500D Classic 1962 / LHD Italy / Concours Restored ‘Nut & Bolt’ / Perfection @ £18,450

This splendid concours restored example is the highly desirable ‘D’ model (the most sort after & collectable model in the classic Nuova 500 range) it has the very rare ‘suicide doors’, ‘round speedo’ & original matching numbers 110D engine. It can be converted to a full length convertible sunshine roof - ‘trasformabile’ if required - In fact it has it all!

It’s an original LHD Italian example built in 1962 in Turin & has come directly from Pescara, a beautiful port city on the Adriatic Sea & the capital of Central Italy’s Abruzzo region. Indeed the car was originally registered from new to Pescara & still wears the ‘PE’ registration prefix, so it’s fair to say it’s never travelled far!

We have just purchased this splendid little chap directly from its long term custodian who purchased it on 4th August 2006 & completed its full ‘nut & bolt’ concours restoration in 2017 at his local Italian sports car specialist. It is absolutely fantastic, dare I say perfect! It’s a testament to the quality & attention to detail on what appears a no expense spared basis. On Completion the owner kept the little Fiat at his holiday home for runs down to the beach with his family in the summer months & has only covered 858 KM’s running it in.

We had seen this well restored example a few times as he uses it at local Club Fiat 500 events as a show car for the club.

We are told by the owner that he spent over 15,000 Euros on the concours restoration (not including the vehicle in the first place) completing in March 2017. We only got the call from him a months ago, as the rising prices of good 500D’s are now close to the sum he had spent on the car.

This is the best & most correctly restored 500D we have ever offered & better than my own example – without exception. We believe it to be the best available worldwide & the only way to get a better one, would be to undertake a concours restoration to your own criteria which would cost you vastly in access of the asking price of this vehicle. The owner was a 500 enthusiast & his knowledge & understanding of the correct parts & original detailing is exceptional. It took us a while to acquire this vehicle for the correct price, but it was well worth the wait!

We have just completed this stunning vehicles first UK MOT which it naturally passed with no advisories & a glowing report from the tester, along with giving it a full service, just to be sure.

We will UK register it in the new owners name so they can be the first UK registered keeper if required.
This beautiful example is eminently usable as it has its original matching numbers rebuilt Fiat 110D 499cc engine with original rebuilt gearbox, it drives like new & as good as it looks!

The owner entrusted this vehicle to his local specialist whom embarked on a full pain staking nut & bolt restoration to concours standard completing in 2017 under his watchful eye. Indeed there is a photograph album that accompanies the vehicle & tells the story – So no guess work here! Basically everything has been reconditioned or replaced correctly. So in brief: Complete strip to bare metal shell, the floors & cills were replaced with genuine panels & the works have been done to an exceptional standard. The car was fully & expertly rewired. The engine was fully rebuilt and the gear box also. The handbrake cable was changed, clutch replaced, steering box rebuilt, the petrol tank was fully refurbished and flushed. The interior was also fully and expertly retrimmed in tan / cream along with the complete door card set & all interior trim was renewed. All other items of interior trim were refurbished or replaced. All lights were overhauled & the correct aluminium surrounds were machine polished, all rubber items were replaced including the door seals, window & side window seals, new bushes fitted, new springs, shocks & mounts, complete brake system replacement, new starter motor and a new exhaust, in fact every mechanical item was either refurbished or correctly replaced with OEM parts.

The bumpers & brackets were replaced, the original steel wheels were fully shot blasted & refurbished with new period correct tyres fitted. The car was fully painted whilst stripped to bare shell (Inside, outside & underneath) at this time in the period shade of Fiat blue scuro that you see today. This includes the under side & wheel arches, so nothing is covered up & you can view for yourself the quality of the underside, which should last for another 57 years. In fact it looks as good underneath as it does on the top – Concours standard.

This truly impressive example is just showing 858 KM since the nut & bolt restoration!

Since being in our possession, we have been meticulous in our further preparation prior to offering this exceptional example to the market by undertaking the following works: Fitted a new Varta battery, chrome wing mirror, heat shield pad, adjusted the steering geometry, supplied a fresh MOT and conducted a multipoint check, replaced the fuel with £25 of new super unleaded, fitted a premium coil & given the cheeky little chap a full service (Oil, plugs, fuel filter, air filter etc) just to be sure! Fitted a 500 Key ring. ACI club sticker, it even has fitted a period luggage rack & period picnic hamper. The car is on the button & ready to go & show or just enjoy…

The vehicle comes with a history file & contains: Original Italian log book, Photographic album of restoration works conducted. Fresh current UK MOT, Specialist parts invoice from Ricambio International Ltd, Copious photos showing car in Pescara Italy…

The car looks as new & is no doubt better than when it left the factory in 1962. We believe it to be the best example worldwide for the price asked. It has been correctly restored by people who know the marquee. This is a collector’s opportunity and a superb investment & hence this cheeky chappy can now get UK registered, has a fresh MOT & is being offered for sale for the first time on our shores.

Fiat blue scuro period paintwork with a dark tan, piped cream interior, including matching door cards & full over matt set in tan. A new black sunshine roof finishes the package.

This exception vehicle has an original 1962 factory extra VOXSON radio fitted along with a chrome mast – Find another! It even has the beautiful chrome effect horn push fitted.

Fresh MOT with NO advisories. (No MOT required in UK)

Free historic road tax.

Keys on Italian leather 500 key ring, correct original 500D jack, brace. Spare wheel with tyre, all accompanied by the original tool kit.

Refurbished Fiat steel wheels, with the correct aluminium hub caps & all shod with new matching tyres & new white wall spats.

Period boot rack with wicker hamper basket for 4 persons.

We are able to convert this vehicle into a full Trasformabile example by arrangement at extra cost. Therefore you would have the full long sunshine roof in the colour of your choice. (Please note we do not undertake this work for third parties).

Please also note: The ROMA number plate shown is for illustrative purposes only & does not come with the vehicle – The original Italian number plate read ‘PE 261642’

These models are ever increasing in value & are a great investment. Our Fiats come recommended by a leading authority on Fiats & parts specialists – Ricambio International Ltd. I actually have a light blue 1965 500D that makes up part of my own private collection & every body loves it! It always puts a smile on my face, plus you don’t need to worry about the rising petrol prices – Just enjoy!

We also have other vehicles currently in stock & arriving from Europe every month.

As we are a Mercedes Pagoda and R107 specialist we are always happy to part exchange one of these type of cars or indeed any classic car of excellent quality, so please don’t miss this most fastidious example of the iconic Fiat 500D. This vehicle is exceptional value, try & find another as original & tax exempt – Please remember ‘you get what you pay for’. Our cars are hand picked by a marquee expert & we turn down 8 or 9 out of every 10 cars offered. The cars we sell, are we believe the best of their type & are here to be viewed & driven in the UK. This takes the gamble out of buying a car direct from Europe sight unseen. Our stock comes fully de-registered from the country of origin with the ACI fee paid, UK MOT’d, test driven, serviced & detailed. Don’t confuse them with other cars on the internet which have had dubious restorations & are offered with a low asking price. We have had 2 clients bring such cars to us recently bought direct from Italy & both were severe MOT failures with a list of faults ranging from no reverse gear to an undercarriage that requires total replacement. You have been warned! There is always a reason why a car is being sold cheaply! Again ‘you get what you pay for’…

This vehicle is we believe the best in Europe don’t settle and ensure you view this stunning example…

More photos available upon request, PX always considered.

Can be viewed at any reasonable time by prior appointment.
We will always buy back cars we have previously sold…

Delivery by road, or packed and shipped, or air freight all possible by arrangement at excellent rates, car is ready to drive away today or be delivered to your door…

We are always keen to purchase Mercedes Benz Pagoda’s (W113) or late 300SL (R107) models, so please give us a call for a friendly chat if you are considering selling, we would love to hear from you. We also hold many parts in stock for the above models & have our own restoration facilities, where we restore these glorious old Mercedes to Stuttgart factory standards.
