Description

Desirable version with suicide doors
French title

This copy is an Italian version among the most desirable. Restored three years ago and equipped with a nice Blu Aquarama with a red interior, it assumes its Italian origin to the end. This is a very popular Fiat 500 D from 1963 with the famous suicide doors. It is powered by the small air-cooled twin cylinder. A revision of the latter has just been made, including carburettor settings and ignition and emptying. The gearbox received new output seals, the steering heads and the left front suspension pivot were replaced. Finally, all exterior chrome was replaced as new as the interior interior trim.
This Cinquecento in a near-new condition is a great way to access the 500 myth.
