1955 Fiat 500

The Fiat Topolino (the Italian name for Mickey Mouse, meaning “little mouse”) was the name given to the first Fiat 500 which was one of the smallest cars in the world at the time of its production. Launched in 1937, three models were produced until 1955, with later cars being referred to as the Cub. all with only minor mechanical and cosmetic changes. It was equipped with a 569 cc four-cylinder, side valve, water-cooled engine mounted in front of the front axle, and so was a full-scale car rather than a cyclecar. (The radiator was located behind the engine.)

Its top speed was an optomistic 85 km/h, and the car ran on the fumes of an oil rag! The Topolino sold for about 8,900 lire. Nearly 520,000 models of the Topolino were sold after working its way into the hearts of people everywhere. The little car on offer here has had a full restoration and starts on the first click!
