Introduced in July 1957, the 'Nuova 500' was the original city car, with a clever monocoque bodyshell, independent suspension and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Engineered by Dante Giacosa, the newcomer utilised a different mechanical layout to its 'Topolino' predecessor. Its rear-mounted, air-cooled, two-cylinder OHV 479cc engine was a first for Fiat. 

Inheriting its larger 499.5cc unit from the short-lived 'Sport' variant, the 500 D debuted in 1960. With its rear-hinged 'suicide' doors and generous sunroof, the diminutive four-seater weighed in at a little over 500kgs. As such, it was able to extract a 60mph plus top speed from just 17.5bhp. These suicide door and crash-box variants are now thin on the ground and one of the more collectable Fiat 500 models. Between 1965 and 1969 the F carried the same badging as the D, but the two models are distinguishable by the positioning of their door hinges. The D has "suicide doors", the F (produced from June 1965) at last featured front-hinged doors.

This 1965 500F has been in current ownership since the early 2000s, having been restored some years ago. Since being returned to the road the little Fiat has been seldom used in recent years, having been driven into its current garage and dry stored for some time. As such the car will now require recommissioning before use.

A restored example of the popular Fiat 500, and we are sure will prove to be a hugely enjoyable addition to the garage. The Fiat is offered with No Reserve.
