Description

Italian title
Chassis n° 100D108117630

- Superb restoration
- A family collectible
- Desirable tipo 100 D with suicide doors

The Multipla was developed by Fiat, with the main objective of being able to transport six people. It took many elements from the Fiat 600 such as the running gear and mechanical components, as well as drawing on other models in the range. The engine layout and the removal of the front storage space gave this very small car an unexpectedly roomy interior. It was in fact the first monospace, or minispace (!) in history, and as often happens in Italy, the design of this simple vehicle hit the right note and became a cult car.
The car that we are offering is from 1963, and has the advantage of being a Tipo 100 D from the first series. Thus it has a more powerful and flexible 767cc engine, developing nearly 30 HP, whilst the doors are still the suicide types. This particular example is in an absolutely incredible state. It has been comprehensively restored for a well-known Milan-based collector by a specialist of the Multipla, without any time constraints, nor any cost limits. The two-tone blue and white interior in faux leatherette is absolutely new. The car drives nicely and the bodywork is in an impeccable condition. The odometer displays 169 km, which corresponds to the distance covered since its comprehensive restoration, making this car an exceptional example.
