The Fiat 1100 was first introduced in 1939 as an updated version of the 508; indeed, its real model name was 508C and it also and had a look similar to that of both the 1936 Fiat 500 Topolino and the middle of the range 1500 model, including the typical late ‘30s heart-shaped front grille.
In 1953 the 1100 was completely redesigned as a compact four door saloon with a modern monocoque chassis and bodywork incorporating integrated front lights. Soon the car became available as a sports version, the 1100TV, with a third front light, and also as an estate version with a fifth door on the square tail.
