This Fiat 500 Impala was made around 1970 , The Fiat Impala was based on the mechanical components of a FIAT 500 or FIAT 146, manufactured in the early 1970s by Foulkes Developments Ltd in Devon. Foulkes described the car as follows:
“The Impala is not made by robots but is hand built in Britain from the highest quality materials. The glass fibre reinforced polyester body/chassis unit is very sturdily constructed with extra reinforcing at all stress points and incorporates box sections for greater stiffness. The design of the shell ensures that no trim is required internally as the whole of the interior is smooth self-coloured gel. The mechanical specification is quite outstanding for a small and low cost vehicle; i.e, independent suspension on all four wheels, semi-trailing arms and coil springs at the rear and wishbones and a transverse leaf spring at the front; self-adjusting brakes; air-cooled all-alloy engine/ gearbox unit with the weight where it should be – over the driven wheels.
The net result when these features are combined with the Impala kit is a rugged go-anywhere small car requiring little in the way of additional expenditure to run and maintain.
