FIAT  500 - THE HISTORY

 

"The most iconic car of italian 50's and 60's booming era. Engineered thanks to the genius of mr Dante Giacosa is a masterpiece of design combined to compact dimensions and usable roominess. Small 499 cc two cylinder aircooled engine rear sitted guarantees smooth mobility while the 4 no-synchro gearbox requires you to drive smart as a race driver of 50's making use of "debrayage technique" or better "doppietta in italian" to get correct gear shifting. Mint condition for an italian one owner car, resulting from one respray in his correct white and careful servicing by Italian Fiat craftman."
