Price: €39,895 and simply the very BEST available! Zustand 1
HISTORY FILE - Full restoration. Our barn find cabriolet is a complete nut and bolt, frame off restoration which has taken some 2 years to complete. True classic Fiat aficionados will spot just how rare our immaculate example is: The five speed gearbox combined with front disc brakes - servo assisted, along with the higher compression engine (115 c the details below), all contribute to the cars heritage and rarity.
Simply the best available.
EXTERIOR – Full restoration. Our iconic Pininfarina designed Fiat 1500 Cabriolet, is a rare sight but, when in view is a real head turner. This stunning Fiat is finished in classic black following a nut and bolt full body off restoration and now displays an incredible paint quality. The chrome bumpers, over-riders and side body trim are in pristine, restored order and compliment the striking black paintwork beautifully. The simple, yet functional mohair roof system is tight and offers a cosy environment when the roof is up. But why would you want to? A nice modern feature is the lockable fuel filler cap.
INTERIOR – Full restoration. Essentially a 4 seater - and perhaps way ahead of its time – this evocative interior is presented in high quality Natural leather. New contrasting beige carpeting finishes the ambience beautifully. An abundant chrome trim interior, easily takes you back to a styling period that will never be repeated (what a pity). The large 15” Fiat Emblem wooden steering wheel produces light steering and is the epitome of Italian flair and design preserved for those who know how to appreciate it.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION - Full restoration. The completely overhauled engine displaces 1481cc and an appropriate 75ps (55 kW) performance. The engine fires promptly at the turn of the key and delivers a lively sounding note that’s keen to perform. Once used to the longer style gate change, the original five speed, fully overhauled, all-synchro gearbox changes nicely, commensurate for the period.
Engine number: 115c 005 - 478559
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES - Full restoration. Five immaculate pressed steel wheels remain as factory fitted and are graced with the original chrome hubcaps showcasing beautiful Fiat detailing. All 5 Möller-Classic 15” whitewall tyres are of course new. Once used to the typical Fiat period floor sourced pedals, the braking system – servo assisted - offers adequate stopping power for its time, all completely overhauled (front disc / rear drum) in accordance with a full restoration.
