Stunning Italian craftsmanship
Supplied with original Fiat 500 owners manual
Ready for immediate use
When Fiat’s chairman Gianni Agnelli needed a “land dinghy” to carry aboard his 82-foot yacht, the Agneta, he asked his design team at Fiat to create a small, light vehicle that could easily be lowered off the boat for local transportation. They came up with the 'Jolly.'
The first Jollys' were built on the two-cylinder Fiat 500 platform and then sent to Ghia, the famous Italian Coachbuilder to be modified. This involved removing the roof and doors and adding wicker seats and a fringed canvas top and strengthening the chassis frame. A version based on the larger 600 soon followed. It is believed that no more than 400 Jollys were built in total, between 1958 and 1969. They were briefly sold in the United States and are very rare in Europe.
Our beautiful little Fiat Jolly recreation is a Fiat 500 that has been fully restored to Jolly specifications having used an original Ghia 500 Jolly as a reference. The entire body of the Fiat 500 saloon was completely stripped to bare metal, restored, re-worked and repainted by craftsmen in Italy. Finished to an extremely high standard and painted beautifully in Peppermint Green with bright Chrome details and wicker seating. Complemented by Chrome wheel trims with White-wall tyres, this iconic little classic always attracts admiring envious onlookers. The drivability of the car is equally as pleasurable, gear changes are smooth, allowing for easy City driving.
Hand crafted wicker seats, rattan floor mats, a quality fringed surrey top, and the gorgeous windshields are fitted to finish the Jolly look, all are in concours condition. This is the perfect vehicle for the Summer months.
Here is the chance to own one of the finest small cars ever built.
