1958 Fiat 500

Fiat 500 Nuova Heritage

The Fiat 500 Nuova was unveiled in 1957 as a replacement to the outgoing 500 “Topolino”. It was designed by Fiat’s lead engineer, Dante Giacosa, who was also responsible for the industry standard front-wheel drive layout that was first seen in Fiat’s 128 in 1969. The Fiat 500 became immensely popular to a point where almost 4 million examples were made until the end of production in 1975.

Changes to the updated 500 include the location of the 479cc two-cylinder engine which was relocated to the rear and featured twin-hinged “suicide” doors. Another feature of the 500N includes the fabric roof which opens all the way to the rear, providing a similar open-top experience to that of a cabriolet.

Despite its low displacement engine, the 500N weighed in at a kerb weight of 500 kilograms. This combination resulted in decent fuel economy which was also a selling point among the rest of its unique features.

This Example:

This example of the 500 is a 1958 model that has undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration in 2017 and 2018. It was painted in a Lambretta beige and has a red leather interior.

Additional safety features were added to this example, which include the following:

  • Front disk brakes
  • Engine rebuilt to 650cc
  • Front 2 point seat belts
  • New windscreen
  • Modern tyres

Other items that were completed and added to this example of the 500 include:

  • New black Mohair roof and frames (£800) as opposed to the standard vinyl top.
  • Correct Fiat rubber mat set.
  • Carello lamps and indicators all round.
  • A complete 500 toolkit, complete with wooden handled screwdriver
  • All new bright work.
  • New Nuova petrol tank – sprayed to resemble the Italian flag.

This example is on display at Crossley & Webb until 2pm on Saturday the 12th of September 2020
