Fiat 500 Mare
The Fiat Jolly was a special edition of the 500 and 600, designed and built by Ghia in the late ‘50s and ‘60s. With a light surrey top, wicker seats and cutaways replacing doors, it was robbed of most of its utilitarianism and as such, became the perfect beach car. Powerful enough to be driven on real roads yet light enough to be driven on a golf course or onto a yacht, resorts and wealthy vacationers bought them in droves.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2012 at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.
16.5 bhp, 479 cc air cooled two-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, leaf spring in front, coil springs in rear, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 1,840 mm (72.4")
