This 1953 Fiat 500C Topolino Belvedere is a European treat that we rarely see in the USA. It's a beautiful Italian that will wow you with its style and character that radiates from such a diminutive classic.
These original 500 C were Topolinos built in Turin, Italy. If you've ever been there, the color theme seen here fits perfectly. It's a lush green part of the country with views of the snow-capped Alps. So the two-tone green feels like stone pines with a hint of wintery mix on top. Even the whitewall tires fit this theme. And speaking of the great outdoors, the full-length folding fabric roof is a terrific trait of these early Fiats. And while this one gives a unique first impression, don't forget to check out the details like the bright bumpers, correct fiat badging, sliding windows, and factory hubcaps on the cool solid wheels.
The Italians can make the simplest of interiors still look clean and stylish. The brown on the seats and door panels fit the car's natural feeling. The Belvedere was a new idea that allowed an economical vehicle to have more room for family trips or for farmers to go to market, and you see that influence in the large rear door that opens up to a flat floor. So it's easy to get all of your afternoon picnic supplies into this little mouse.
When you open the hood, there is one of the most interesting motor arrangements around. The diminutive 569cc four-cylinder takes up very little room, but it takes pride in being the motor that helped put Italy on wheels. And because of this history, you can tell a lot went into making it look this correct. So it looks quite authentic and well presented. Like any proper Italian, the four-cylinder is surprisingly rev-happy. And while it's not a speed demon, the four-speed manual transmission means it will get you to your favorite car events with a smile on your face.
Fiat 500C Belvedere is an exceptionally rare sight in the USA, and so that already makes this desirable. So to find such a complete example at a value price is irresistible. Call today!!!
