After 3.6 million units produced over a 15 year career, the Fiat 500 was still not out of date in 1973, which confirmed the intelligence of its design, a real achievement for chief engineer Dante Giacosa. Today, the design has been caught by fashion again, having become the darling of urban enthusiasts. It is true that this is a car with its small vertical twin-cylinder air-cooled engine at the rear was light, not weighing more than 500 kg. Thus it was economical, which corresponded exactly to the needs of Italians at its launch in 1957. This best-selling Fiat underwent various changes, both aesthetically and mechanically, but the general shape, configuration and spirit remained unchanged. The 500 D version that concerns us here appeared in 1960 and succeeded the Sport, also called B. Its engine developed 17.5bhp and car just about managed 100 km/h.

The car we offer was sold new in France, and still has the Fiat France plate. It has been completely restored and is in a very beautiful state. The midnight blue body is very healthy, and the red interior goes perfectly well with the exterior shade. Tyres with whitewalls are very chic and the hood is in perfect condition and can effectively protect from the elements, whilst being able to enjoy the slightest ray of sunshine when open. The interior is immaculate, with the seats and door panels in red imitation leather and a dashboard in painted metal. The seats are in good condition, as well as the rubber mats. The odometer shows 56,863km, and the car is equipped with a jack and a test showed that it is in good overall functioning condition. This is an excellent example of a little fun car that is extremely convenient for city use, especially today.
