Description

This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .This Fiat 500 ‘Spiaggina’ was converted in the mid-1990s by a craftsman from Venice to be used on Venetian beaches, during the summer and the sunny season on the seafront, as well as for some weddings.

The bodywork was handcrafted by installing solid tubular reinforcements around the panels and building custom-made stepboards and other supports, in order to make the car solid and usable.

Only one owner from 1993 to December 2020, and many major maintenance works have been carried out in the last year, including:

1. A new complete paintwork in Fiat Celeste (sky blue) colour;
2. Complete overhaul and testing of the electrical system, with new battery and new headlights;
3. New tyres and restoration of original rims in the car colour;
4. Entirely new chrome, including the rare specific chrome windscreen frame;
5. New carpet kit and rubber details;
6. Overhaul of brakes with new lines, new joints of the axle shafts, transmission angle head, silencer.

A general tune-up has just been carried out and the car drives smoothly on the road.

The marine fabric seats are water resistant and sunproof, they can be washed, suitable for summer use.

Some videos of the car, engine and road driving are available, please contact Catawiki.

The technical inspection expired in June 2019 and it wasn’t used after that.
