Description

This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .The engine and all the mechanics of this 1966 Fiat 500 F have recently been completely disassembled from the car, worn parts have been replaced (gaskets, tubes, shock absorbers), and the vehicle has been serviced and reassembled.

The body was healthy and had not suffered accidents: in fact, it was possible to do an overhaul from scratch, keeping all the original sheets.
The painting has been completely redone new. At this stage, sea teal colour 433 available on the 500 mod F of those years was chosen, replacing the old blue paint.

All gaskets were replaced. Instead, its original bumpers have been kept, complete with rostrum, as after careful polishing, the excellent state of conservation of the excellent chrome plating of the time has allowed its restoration. Even the bonnet handle (areal treat), made of aluminium and without a lock, is original like the aluminium lid of the license plate light and the headlights with their round frames.

Small details making a big difference compared to the spare parts of modern manufacture with which inevitably, given the extreme rarity of the original pieces available on the market, these small icons of Made in Italy motoring are restored most of the time.

The interior has been entirely redone new in "vipla", a more resistant and soft material than the cheapest imitation leather generally used. The colour chosen for the upholstery is aviation blue with cream-coloured crescent top also available at the time, which delivered an absolute chromatic harmony considering their combination with the external colour of the marine teal paint.

As additional equipment, this Cinquecento F features the luggage rack complete with suitcase and suitcase cover, all strictly of the time. The car is complete with original and well-preserved license plates and documents (vehicle registration document and certificate of ownership).

The car was sold new on January 13, 1966 in Messina (Sicily - Italy), a city the car has never left and where it can be viewed and withdrawn.

We can arrange national and international shipping upon agreement with the buyer. Costs for transfer of ownership (in Italy), or deregistration for export (in case of a non-Italian buyer), as well as shipping costs shall be borne by buyer.
