Description

VIN No. 193004
Engine Type: 500B

Registered in 1950, it has the number plates and logbook of the province of Cuneo from 1969. A very rare example of a Fiat 500 C transformed by the Ollearo Company of Turin, which produced this version of a three-axle truck, authorised by Fiat. It still has its payload of 10 hundredweight. A copy of the Ollearo price list is present showing the various commercial vehicles and their technical characteristics, a copy of the production authorisation issued by Fiat and photos of the vehicle before restoration, dating from the late 1980s.
Green with a wooden body, the vehicle was fully restored to competition standard in the 1990s and stored in a private museum; it is still in stunning condition. The body was originally metal, as can be seen in the original photos; the decision to rebuild it in wood was taken by the owner who undertook the restoration.
Mechanics complete, original and fully restored in the 1990s. For the last 20 years it has been kept in a private museum, the coolant was removed and the engine has been run periodically. However, it still needs a general check-up to be able to be restarted. No valid MOT.
An extremely rare and special model, an unmissable opportunity for every collector of special vehicles and for lovers of the legendary Topolino. The proposed example is unique in terms of characteristics and condition, and has deliberately not been registered as a historic vehicle in order to maintain its range.
The car must be collected from Alessandria.
