This delightful little lefthand drive Fiat Nuova is essentially a three owner car. Its first keeper bought the little Fiat for his wife before selling it to his work colleague for 400,000 lire in 1973. It then remained unused for many years in dry storage until the decision was made to restore the Fiat which commenced last year. The original engine and gearbox were overhauled and the engine enlarged from 499cc to 595cc with the carburettor being replaced. Attention was also paid to the brakes, new shock absorbers fitted and shod with new tyres. The vendor inform us that the bodywork has been restored and repainted in its original colour and all other items were removed and sand blasted before being painting and new seals fitted. As a result the vendor presently grades the bodywork, Blue paintwork, Red interior trim, two-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'excellent' order.
