1970 FIAT 500L
Replacement for FIAT’s much-loved 500 ‘Topolino’, the Nuova 500 debuted in 1957. A radical departure from its predecessor’s essentially pre-war design, FIAT’s new baby featured unitary construction, an opening fabric roof and all-independent suspension while carrying its engine at the rear. Introduced in 1968 alongside the standard 500F, the deluxe 500L, while mechanically identical, came with exterior cosmetic enhancements and an improved interior featuring new instrument panel, seats and floor covering.
An immense success for FIAT, almost 3,000,000 of these adorable little cars had been sold when production ceased in 1975. The original FIAT 500 remains as popular today as it ever was and recently was voted ‘Sexiest Car’ by the readers of Top Gear magazine.
This left-hand drive example of the FIAT 500 in its ultimate form was bought at a charity auction in the UK in October 2014 having been restored prior to its previous vendor’s purchase. Presented in good running order, this charming and highly collectable little car is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.
