Description:

Charming Little Fiat 500R
Rarer than the 'L' with slightly more power and synchromech gearbox.
Great investment opportunity, bang on trend at the moment. This is a very easy Classic to own. Parts are easy and cheap to get and the mechanics are very simple.
The last incarnation of the Fiat 500 was the R model. lt had the same 594 cc engine of the Fiat 126,
however, the power rating is the same as the L but at lower rpm (4000 instead of 4400) and with a
bit more torque. It was also more comfortable, but more simply trimmed and equipped than before,
the fuel gauge was omitted and only the low fuel indicator remained.

The 500 R was also a stop-gap for Fiat prior to the launch of the Fiat 126, and when the new 126 was launched,
sales of the old Fiat 500 R plummeted. It was sold alongside the Fiat 126 for another two years before Fiat retired the 500.

This one had emigrated from Italy in 2009 and first registered here 23/03/2009, when it was first restored. It was restored again in 2014 and was subject to full overhaul at R.Proietti in London with 3 pages of Parts and Labour bills. I have Bills going back to 2013 and lots of old MOT's. It has 103198km/64000 miles showing with MOT evidence back to 2009.
The car is very solid with no rust underneath. The paintwork is clean and shiny, but there are a few minor bubbles here and there will need some attention in the future. All the chrome is gleaming. The interior is in great condition, with the seats recently retrimmed.

The wheels and tyres are good as is the suspension and brakes. The engine seems fine and pulls well with no leaks. The car drives and stops as a classic Fiat 500 should. The boot has been modified to facilitate more cooling to the air-cooled engine, but this can put back to standard in little more than a few minutes.

The car is fitted with a nice Pioneer sound system with Bluetooth linking for your mobile. This has been done discretely so as not to detract from the originality.

There are hardly any "R" models for sale at the moment and considering they have the larger engine and the more manageable syncro gearbox. This particular car has apparently been displayed at many shows and proved very popular.
Viewing is welcome, and please feel free to ask any questions.

Thank you for looking
