So what do you do when the new Fiat 500 has become just a little too common on the road and prices for vintage Fiat 500 models have gone through the roof? You invest in something like this 1970s Fiat 126 car, that's what.
Ok, it might not have the vintage charm of an original Fiat 500, but this later issue does have originality on its side, An early one off the production line (1974), it is in that oh-so-1970s turquoise shade, has had just two owners and has done only 32,000 miles from new.
According to the seller, it has the original engine and gearbox, it is in 'as new condition' both inside and out and has never been welded or restored. No doubt because it has a been in dry storage for 'many years'.
It really is something – and right now this Fiat 126 car is at £1,000 on eBay.
