Some ideas are just moments of genius, shifting a concept around 180° and leaving other manufacturers playing catch-up. This was the case with Fiats new Multipla. Not only was it their first rear wheel drive car but they went one step further and moved the cockpit over the front wheels, allowing this interior to now seat six people in three rows in comfort, a concept still in production today. The engine in the 600D was 767cc unit, an eminently flexible motor with a top speed just under 70mph making these charming and practical little vehicles among the most sought after of all post-war Fiats.
This charming Multipla has spent most of its life in Italy, until four years ago when our vendor purchased from the previous long-term owner. Having undergone a full bare metal, no expense spared restoration and repaint with underbody renovation by Automotive in Martina Fraca, Southern Italy to showcase their paint products. More recently having been used to ferry friends and family around on the Isle of Wight where it presides, wherever it goes it creates quite a stir. A best in show winner on the two occasions it has been entered, we are informed by the vendor she starts, drives, and stops superbly, with all gears selecting correctly. Offered with V5C registration document, current MoT certificate and original import papers. Classic Multiplas in this superb condition are rare and this one, goes as well as it looks…and it looks gorgeous.
