In 1952, at the Mille Miglia, a Fiat 500C captured 1st place in the Turismo Nazionale 750 class. This particular example is a Fiat 500C Topolino Transformable that has been treated to a restoration since new. In 1952, the 569 cubic centimeter engine (which was mounted 'backwards,' with the radiator located behind the engine) was capable of producing 16 horsepower. A single Solex carburetor has been fitted to the engine and there is a 6.1 gallon gasoline tank. The top speed rose to 59 mph by 1952, which was aided by a 4.875:1 rear end.

The restoration work was completed in 2010. The exterior was finished in green over black which was original to this car when it was sold new in 1952. Inside, there are two large, round gauges - a tachometer located on the driver's side, along with the fuel, oil, and temperature indicators, which were inset into the face of the gauge. The speedometer is set in front of the single passenger.

This car has a black cloth 'transformable' top.
