- 600cc engine, synchromesh gearbox, converted to righthand drive

Debuting in 1957, the Nuova 500 featured unitary construction and all-independent suspension. Introduced in 1960, the rare 500 D Trasformabile offered a full length folding roof and more performance from a detuned version of the Sport model's powerplant. Now a true motoring icon, the 500 is recognised as a landmark design in the history of motoring. This charming righthand drive conversion was sourced in Italy and professionally restored in 2012 by Signature Automobiles of Beckenham as a 40th birthday gift for the vendor's wife. Finished in Celeste Crociera with cream interior, an upgraded 600cc engine gives good performance although since completion of the works the car has been used sparingly and kept in a carcoon. A period looking suitcase complete with labels of 1960s icons adorns the boot. The history file includes a CD of images and photographs of the restoration together with copies of the original Italian title documents. Offered with MoT to September 2018 and Swansea V5C, this lovely little gem is ready to be enjoyed.
