Description

For sale in our upcoming auction on September 16th at the Montreux Palace, exhibition on the Montreux Palace garden, from September 13 to 16. This Fiat 500 is a C version dating from 1949. It is thus about one of the first models of C. Proposed in a red livery, cream cloth inside, this "Topolino" presents a pronounced patina, with the most beautiful effect for a vehicle dating from this period. Of course, a resumption of tissues, in particular on the inside of doors, can be made to remove it.
Its painting and its mechanics present very well, but are in state of regular use. Totally in her configuration of origin and always maintained without restoration, this Italian car starts even under cold conditions without setting of resistance against the launch of her block of 500 cc and runs with the biggest ease.
The not-synchronized box crosses reports easily? ; downshifting is effortlessly made and without catcher. This little Fiat is still registred under its Italian car plates. For the past decade, it has been driven on The lake major roads in Italy for the greatest pleasure of its owner. The latter puts it on sale reluctantly. His age is not allowing him anymore to completely enjoy the conduct of the vehicle.
This 500 was build before the war, used by his owner, and kept away from car-shows. It offers a real history, the kind of one we felt when getting behind the wheel... More details of the car and registration for online or telephone bid here : www.galartis.ch / +41 21 695 25 25
