We are delighted to offer this very honest, original cult classic Fiat 500 R onto the market. Over recent years, the Fiat 500 has grown into a true icon and nice examples are becoming increasingly hard to find. The Fiat 500 was launched in 1957 and is considered as one of the first city cars. The 500 proved to be an enormously practical and popular vehicle throughout Europe and today have an incredibly strong following. The last of the Fiat 500 line was the R model. It had a larger 594cc engine designed by Abarth giving it a more useable power rating of 23bhp and it came with a full syncromesh gearbox. The Fiat 500R was a stop gap for Fiat prior to launching the Fiat 126 and when the 126 was launched, sales of the Fiat 500 plummeted. It was sold alongside the Fiat 126 for two years before Fiat retired the 500.This lovely, useable car has spent several years in San Biagio Di Callalta, Northern Italy before arriving in the UK for the first time in 2014. The Fiat was UK registered by us and prepared mechanically for one of our regular customers. The 500 was treated to new front brake shoes and wheel cylinders, new front seat belts, new ignition coil, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs and oil change. Since then the Fiat has performed perfectly and proven totally reliable. LAF 872L has nicely aged older paintwork, a really sharp body with clean wheel arches, lower wings and door bottoms. The chrome work is in very good order and the interior is remarkably original with a lovely patina. The seats, door cards and rubber mats are are in excellent condition and we are confident in saying this has never been a neglected car. This is delightful, on the button, useble Fiat 500 that offers great value.
