Fiat 500 (1957-1975)

The "nuova 500" was Fiat's successful attempt to establish a vehicle class below the former Fiat 500 Topolino. Introduced in 1957, the car initially led to dismay because of its low performance and meagre equipment. After these two birth defects had been corrected and the price had been considerably reduced, the 500 became Fiat's most successful model. Almost four million Fiat 500 have been built between 1957 and 1975. Technically, the car has never been a simple design. With independent suspension all around, hydraulic brakes and a four-speed gearbox, the Fiat 500 made many cars presented at the same time look unambitious. All Fiat 500 cars have a folding roof made of fabric, which lost half of its size from the D model onwards. The Fiat 500 has a large fan base throughout Europe. All serial parts are available from stock. More importantly, however, we stock a wide range of technical improvements.
