Lot 255 - 1970 Fiat 500L
|Odometer reading||51,080 km|
|Result||Sold - £9,056|
Designed by Dante Giacosa, the Fiat 500 was produced between 1957 and 1975 with limited production of the Fiat 500K estate continuing until 1977. Measuring only three metres long and originally powered by a tiny 479cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term 'small car' and is considered one of the first city cars. Despite its diminutive size, the 500 proved to be an enormously practical and popular car throughout Europe, capturing the hearts and minds of the public. The 'L' or Lusso was manufactured between 1968 and 1972 and featured a much more up to date interior including a renewed dashboard that gave the 500 a more modern feel.
First registered in 1970 this wonderful example was imported to the UK on 1st December 2018. Prior to import the Fiat 500 was treated to a comprehensive restoration in Italy, as such the paintwork presents very well and the interior is in good order throughout. The vendor reports that the 500 is a joy to drive and is a real head turner! Included in the sale is the history file containing a copy of the Italian registration document, previous MoT records and the UK registration document. Offered without reserve this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a well restored example that can be enjoyed immediately.
