1963 Fiat 500 Sedan Vehicle Profile

1963 Fiat 500
Sedan
The Fiat 500 (In Italian, Cinquecento) was in production from 1957 through 1975. The design was courtesy of Dante Giacosa and introduced as the Nuova (meaning new) 500 in July of 1957. The vehicle was an inexpensive, practical, utilitarian vehicle that was perfect for families. There was seating for two adults and three children's. It measured just 10 feet long and powered by a 479cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine offering 13 horsepower. Later models switched to conventional front-hinged doors (while the earlier models had 'suicide doors'). The engine displacement size also increased to 499cc, and eventually to 549cc.

The 500 was also available as the 'Giardiniera' station wagon which had its standard engine laid on its side, with a wheelbase that was 10 cm longer. In this guise, there was a usable rear seat.

Sport models were produced by Abarth, as well as Giannini. An Austrian variant, produced by Steyr-Daimler-Puch, the Steyr-Puch 500, had a motorcycle-derived Puch boxer twin motor offering up to 41 horsepower.

After almost 4 million units produced, the Fiat 500 was replaced by the Fiat 126. In 2007, the 50th anniversary of the original 500's launch, Fiat launched a similar styled, longer and heavier front wheel drive car, also called the Fiat Nuovo 500.

This particular example began its life in New Zealand and was built under an exclusive arrangement with the New Zealand Government that required at least 51% of all parts to be locally sourced. The body was welded together in Italy and final assembly took place in Auckland, using New Zealand glass, NZ tires, NZ seatbelts, NZ rubber gaskets, etc. The car was imported to California in December of 2000. The car sat under a tree for several years before it was purchased and given a complete restoration. Before the work was completed, the car was listed for sale on craigslist as 'a project.' The current owner purchased the car and performed a spectacular restoration, bringing it back to its original glory.
