Always big on character and charm, Fiat's little cars played an important international roll in providing affordable and practical private transport for millions who had previously thought their dream impossible.
With particular emphasis on the now classic 600 and Nuova 500 cars, this book tells the full story of these 'baby' Fiats. Built, and exported to, many countries outside of the marque's native Italy, over 6.5 million Topolinos, 600s and Nuova 500s were sold, and an amazing number survive to this today. Also covered are the wonderful models built on these cars' tiny chassis by Italy's leading coachbuilders, and the motorsport success achieved by the Abarth versions of the little cars that everybody loves.
This book unfolds the development and design of the baby Fiats 500 and 600. During the production there have been many changes in details, which you can find in this book, where the special body styles of the Weinsberg and the Jolly variants of Ghia, the Abarths, the Necker-Fiats and Steyr-Puchs are not forgotten. Prints of the original sales brochures brighten up the whole. In the back specifications and overviews of clubs. - Klassiek & Techniek.
