Description

- Sold in Austria in 1961, imported into Italy several years ago, but never registered. All the necessary documents for registration are present.
- White colour, restored when it was imported into Italy and practically never used since then, it is in perfect condition in terms of bodywork and interior.
- Mechanically complete and restored together with the rest of the car, but has been stationary in a dry place for many years. It needs a general overall inspection before being restarted.
- The Austrian sister of the Fiat 500 more or less followed the same car development, sharing the various updates over the years. Aesthetic differences are limited to the friezes, the odometer working counter-clockwise and the bonnet with oversized air intakes. But from a mechanical point of view the Steyr was able to position itself at a higher level, thanks to the fully synchronised ZF gearbox and a boxer twin-cylinder engine with decidedly higher performance.
