Description for Fiat 500L 1970

The Fiat 500, known in Italy as the cinquecento, was a “people’s car” produced by Fiat company between 1957 and 1975. Launched in July 1957, designed by Dante Giacosa, the Nuova 500 was a successor to the Fiat 500 Topolino models A, B C – Topolino meaning “little mouse” and marketed as a low cost town car. Measuring just over 9 feet long and powered by a 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the Fiat 500 or “Bambina” is considered one...of the first city cars. The post-war market required economy cars and the rear-engined Fiat 500 following the concept of the Volkswagen Beetle met this demand. Despite its small size, the fiat five hundred proved to be an enormously popular car throughout Europe during the 1960’s and 1970’s.Fiat 500 L or Lusso – (1968 – 1972)While the F and L are mechanically very similar, the key differences were the bumpers. The L has an extra chrome nudge bar at the front and two at the rear, a more modernized interior (seats and pleated door panels), a new black steering wheel, an almost square instrument panel with plastic revised dashboard, speedometer up to 130 km/h, reclining seats and carpeting. The rear badge FIAT 500 L was in capital letters set on a silver mount.This beautiful Fiat 500L is a fresh rotisserie restoration completed by a renowned micro-car expert located just north of Modena, Italy.
