FIAT 500


1964 Nuova 500 Convertible


£28,000 to £30,000

This exact car was £28,000.

       This “silly little car”, as described by her owner, was imported from Belgium 15 years ago in the back of a Transit Van! This is where the fun stopped though, as soon after an overheating and gearbox problem meant the car sat for 12 years, waiting to be bought back to life. As such a special example with original paint, priceless patina, suicide doors and a softtop – something had to be done. The family owned and loved car is now completely efficient, reliable and can keep up with modern traffic, thanks to it’s electric drivetrain. A real head-turner as it drives past silently!
