Yes, you’ve probably seen few Fiat 500s before, but not like this one. This little machine is Italy condensed into 4 wheels and an engine. First released in 1957, the Fiat Cinquecento was an instant hit in its native country where it was marketed as Italy’s alternative to the Volkswagen Beetle. Nearly 3.5 million were made in total.
As quaint as the original Fiat 500 was, the car was riddled with problems such as the stubborn gearbox and the fact that it took a cool 59 seconds to hit 50 mph. The solution? This 1968 Fiat 500 F. Gear box problems solved and a more powerful engine installed, this machine is not just collectible but usable.
The red leather interior, red carpets, clear indicators, red vinyl roof, Italian stripes across the car, and chrome trim top off this Italian treasure. It’s a fun four-wheeler with heaps of personality, we think it’s the perfect car for a summer drive around the city.
At £14,995, this 1968 Fiat 500 F is a real steal. Find out how it could be yours by taking a trip to the Fast Classics website.
