eBay watch: 1970s Fiat 500 car

Fiat500_1

Always a few up for auction, but we love this particular 1970s Fiat 500 car.


That's because, despite undergoing quite a lot of renovation, it still has an honest originality to it. The best of both worlds. It's a 1971 car with 38,705 miles on the clock. Oh yes, the car is called Luigi too, apparently.

It was registered in Modena (and comes with original period tax disc and Ferrari dealer badge) before the left-hand drive was shipped over, undergoing a 'full maintenance and improvement scheme', including, new brakes, new fuel tank and fuel lines, new steering bushes, filters, tyres, rear seat belt fitment, rewiring and a full overhaul of all key elements and parts, along with 'hours and hours of polishing'.

It also has an upgraded 650bhp engine and comes with additional Abarth bits and bobs including the steering wheel, gear stick, bonnet stays and badges, along with a full 'ragtop', rare optional hardtop, CD player and rare Fiat alloys.

If you want to give Luigi a good home, £3,200 is the current bid price.
