1959 Fiat Jolly 600 Sedan / 100.574826 Chassis Information

1959 Fiat Jolly 600
Sedan
Coachwork: Ghia
Chassis #: 100.574826
Sold for $99,000 at 2014 RM Auctions - Amelia Island.
The Fiat 500 Topolino gave way to a new 600 model in 1955. The new car, just like its predecessor, was named for its nominal displacement. Power was from a 633 cubic-centimeter overhead-valve, water-cooled inline four-cylinder engine which was a useful increase in power over the two-cylinder 500. The Fiat 600 had a unibody construction for lightweight rigidity and four-wheel independent suspension riding on the same 2,000 millimeter wheelbase as the 500.

Production of the Fiat 600 lasted for 15 years with more than 2.5 million built.

Fiat's chairman Gianni Agnelli, the father of the Jolly, desired a small car to carry aboard his 82-foot ketch, the Agneta, during port stops in the Mediterranean Sea. The first Jollys were built on the two-cylinder Fiat 500 platform and modified by the Italian coachbuilder Ghia. The roof and doors were removed and wicker seats were added. A fringed surrey top was installed providing adequate cover from the elements.

A new version of the Jolly soon found its way onto the larger 600. It is estimated that about 400 examples were built, of all types, between 1958 and 1969. They were briefly sold in the United States and still remain rare in modern times.

This example has been given a no-expense-spared restoration. It spent a period of time in California; the current owner has kept the car at his second residence in Hilton Head, South Carolina where it has been properly stored in a climate-controlled garage. The odometer shows fewer than 5,000 kilometers.
