Description
 
There has been a Fiat 500 sized hole in our stock for a while (a small one admittedly), so this 500F in a rather fetching custard yellow is a welcome addition. Freshly arrived on these shores and in left-hand drive, it is a very tidy example that has been enhanced by the addition of the 650 engine and gearbox from a later Fiat 126. This is a very popular upgrade that not only gives a useful increase in power, but also provides a synchromesh box rather than the original's crash item. We don't have a great deal of history with the car but clearly, like just about every 500 still running, it has had some restoration work and a repaint at some time. Most of the inner panels appear original however and the repairs to the underside have been done properly. The car has just passed the MOT test with no problem and is being UK registered as I write. As a 1972 model it is of course tax exempt. As a 500F rather than the more 'luxurious' L model, the car has the much cuter white steering wheel and round speedo, rather than the L's rather dull instrumentation. It is just about as basic as motoring gets, with rubber mats rather than carpets and minimal equipment. You do get of course the famous folding sunroof that turns it into an open car in seconds. The seats are in excellent condition and the roof looks like a fairly recent replacement. The car drives really well, with its characteristic go-kart handling and quite peppy performance. We have had both right and left-hand drive 500s before and the car is so small that it makes very little difference where you sit. Past experience has also shown that left-hand drive is really useful in town because you get out on the pavement not into traffic! Equally the car would be the perfect thing to keep at a holiday home on the continent. It arrived with the luggage rack fitted on the engine lid and the picnic set we had in stock fits perfectly. Twist our arm and we will throw it in with the deal!
