Fiat 600D Multipla 22 bhp, 633 cc overhead-valve inline four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission, A-arm front and radius arm rear suspension with coil springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 2,000 mm
Following the Second World War in Italy, there was a growing demand for practical yet affordable transport. The Fiat 600 was already a bestseller by 1956, when the Multipla was first launched, but the new model soon found a loyal following of its own.
Designed to fulfil the needs of larger families and commercial users, the Fiat 600 Multipla was conceived by Dante Giacosa. Giacosa’s design was truly a feat of engineering packaging. By advancing the passenger compartment over the front wheels and moving the engine to the rear, he created one of the first successful mono-space cars and was able to extract six seats from a car that was only 11 feet and 6.9 inches long!
Three versions of the Mulitpla were available, including a 4/5-seater with bench seats front and rear, which could be folded to make a bed. The 6-seater had a front bench and four individual seats that folded completely flat into the floor. Finally, a taxi version had a single seat and luggage platform in front, separate folding seats in the middle, and a bench seat in back, together with a division.
This car was found in a storage barn in Italy, brought back to the UK where it has been fully restored by Weenie Fiats (Fiat 500 specialist) in Swindon. It was taken right back to a shell and then rebuilt back to its former Glory. It has been finished off in a two-tone Pistachio and Terracotta with the interior being finished off in an off white and green piping.
What more can I say other than if you are looking a piece of classic Italian history then look no further. To really appreciate the quality of this car I highly recommend a viewing.
