Fiat 500 R Rinnovata 1974 (M) Red
Launched by Fiat as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car measuring only 2.97 metres (9'9") long and originally powered by an appropriately sized 479 cc two-cylinder air-cooled engine. The 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city cars which proved enormously practical and popular throughout Europe.
The last of the line was the 500R or Rinnovata model as you see here and it was produced between 1972 and 1975. It had a larger 594cc Engine designed by Abarth giving 23bhp and a 4 speed full synchromesh Gearbox and is distinguished by having a new horizontal Fiat badge on the front, a round speedometer in black, galvanised steel wheels without hubcaps and rectangular tail lights.
We are delighted to offer this beautiful LHD Fiat 110F Berlina 500R which has just been beautifully restored in Italy to an exceptionally high standard and imported to the UK by ourselves for sale.
It was manufactured in the Fiat Auto plant named “SicilFiat” near Termini Imerese, Palermo, Sicily in February 1974 and was delivered to dealer Filiale Fiat Roma and registered on 25th February 1974 in Rome.
It is finished in a lovely Rosso Red with new Black vinyl trim piped in Red, new Black rubber floor matting, new Black vinyl Soft top, new headlining, new chrome fittings including bumpers and its original steel wheels with new tyres.
The speedometer is showing 52,800 Kms (32,300 miles), but we do not know its original mileage from new, although it has covered less than 200kms since its restoration which also included a full mechanical checkover and some new components. The car has now been MOT'd and UK registered with the period number plate TDV 135M.
This car is very near Concours and is in simply exceptional and stunning condition throughout and drives beautifully, so if you do want one of the best examples currently available for sale, this has to be a serious contender.
Upon sale, it will come with our own customer care package including a 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be extended at additional cost if required.
