This small Fiat was sold new in Florence and only had two families as owners, the second one from Pistoia.
It still has vintage number plates and registration certificate with a beautiful original five-digit black number plate.
The old owner had restored this car very carefully, however he died in 2000 and the car has been left unused for over 20 years in a dry, indoor garage. Therefore, it is an old restoration, which still looks good with a beautiful original patina.
The paintwork is still shiny and solid, and the vinyl interior is in beautiful condition, as well as the original door panels and rubber mats.
The soft top has never seen rain, it opens and closes smoothly and the opening and closing mechanism is smooth.
The floor and underbody were professionally restored in the past and still look good (as shown in photos).
The engine starts with an external bottle and has good compression, however normal maintenance work is needed before use after being left idle for so long, as well as tank cleaning and brakes overhaul.
The technical inspection expired and this car is at auction without technical inspection.
It is a solid car that can be a vehicle ready for the summer with just a mechanical service, with documents in order.
Some videos of the car and engine are available: please contact Catawiki.
