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 had an appearance 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. In the 1950s it was the basis for many of the upcoming Etceterini in Italy.
