1951 Fiat topolino 500C. Brown with 'rather unusually' trimmed seats and Door cards.
(topolino translates as 'little mouse' and at the time of its production , the car was one
of the smallest in the world!)
This is another car that has come in from southern Italy.
Its in remarkable condition for its age.
Its clearly been restored and has been cared for by the original owner.
He advised he occasionally took the car out and tended to use it for classic car
meets or weddings.
We are certain he is responsible for trimming the car in such an unusual cloth.
We however feel it adds a real charm to the car. (we do love individuality!)
Steve assesses the car was probably restored in the late 1990's inview of the paint colour and content.
This topolino is known as a convertible saloon and features a little 4 cylinder engine (and manual
gearbox). An incredibly rare sight on a UK road aswell as at classic car club meets.
We are in the process of working through this car mechanically and are looking at the engine and brakes
intrusively. All work is backed up by photographic documentation.
The car is 'Nova'd' (HMRC import advised) and we are currently registering the car in the business name , so
it'll have UK plates soon.
We'll update the advert as we progress.
we'd like all to be aware we can ofcourse deliver our vehicles safely to our buyers.
Please E-mail or phone for more information.
Our usual engineering report and appraisal sheets will be available at request.
We have created a very large additional photographic portfolio , that can be e-mailed over at request.
But for a full report you are advised to speak to Steve or E-mail him.
He currently describes the car as a running , very light restoration project to improve to personal taste.
