Description for Fiat 500 1970

Fresh restoration, reat driving!
1970 Fiat 500 Coupe
Chassis number: 1918988
A replacement for Fiat's much-loved 500 'Topolino', he Nuova 500 debuted in 1957. A radical departure from its predecessor's essentially pre-war design, IAT's new baby featured unitary construction, n opening fabric roof and all-independent suspension. Carried at the rear, he half-liter engine was an air-cooled overhead-valve twin. The basic 500's austerity was not well received, owever, rompting the introduction of a revised and better equipped version endowed with refinements such as hubcaps, ind-down windows, pholstered rear seat and column-mounted switchgear stalks. This process of step-by-step improvement would continue throughout the 500's life. . . .
The recently imported from Italy car offered here of 1970 vintage was subject to a comprehensive restoration. Starting with a rust-free original car, t was stripped for a re-paint in the hugely desirable baby blue colour it sported from new. The car shows no sign of ever having been in an accident and panel fit is consistent and excellent throughout. All Brightwork is as-new, he glass is perfect, nd the car rides on nicely restored cream-coloured wheels shod with good tires. The odometer reads 54,226 km (33,600 miles) and from looking at the tell-tale parts of the car, elieve that it could be original mileage. .
The fantastically stylish rosso interior with bianco accents was fully refurbished and remains in excellent condition throughout. Dash, arpets and panels are all excellent, nd the seats are unmarked, nd feel fresh, ew and comfortable. .
The car is simply a blast to drive! The rebuilt two-cylinder engine starts easily, dles perfectly and offers great, esponsive power from all of its 500cc! It accelerates well by even modern eco-box standards and will happily cruise at freeway speeds. The 4-speed shifts perfectly through an excellent clutch. It feels bright and eager to run. I would genuinely drive it anywhere without consideration and have great fun doing it! .
Brakes are great, s is the light and balanced steering, nd the suspension has no untoward creaks or squeaks. It handles as well as any Italian car should. .
All electrical systems work perfectly and a brand new battery was just installed. .
This is a great opportunity to buy a turn-key icon of Italian motoring and enduring symbol of "la dolce vita", hich seats four comfortably and garners attention, aves and cheers wherever it goes. Not to mention, hat it is a piece of cake to park and about as cheap to run as you can get!!
