Fiat 500 Jolly

As a result of the success derived from Ghia’s modification of a number of Fiat 600s into Jolly models, the firm doubled down by sending a number of 500s for the same type of conversion. This special run of 500s was produced in a limited quantity and cost nearly twice as much as the standard model.

Part of the RM Auctions event in Florida in March, 2012 and in Arizona in January, 2013.

16.5 bhp, 479 cc rear-mounted, air-cooled OHV two-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with transverse leaf spring, independent rear suspension with single wishbones and coil springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 72.4"
