Fiat 500 Classic for sale - has to be one of the best. Has just been completed with nearly £24K spent on it (it's never turned a tyre on Tarmac).

HAPPY TO ASSIST WITH EXPORT (against cleared funds of course).

The car has a big provenance file, having been used right up to the point of being stripped for restore - Had the same lady owner from 1975 through 2014 when bought for restore - This car has it's Original floor and sills (most 500's have replacement sills and floor sections which compromise integrity)

PICTURES SHOW VARIOUS STAGES OF THE PROJECT

Highlights include:

Breathed Upon / Blue Printed Engine

A new 595cc engine - stripped, crank balanced (with piston rods balanced end to end and together, with pulley, flywheel & Cover plate), head ported & gas flow drilled, hardened valve seats (for unleaded fuel) milled steel warm camshaft (35 / 70, 70 / 35), electronic ignition distributor (123 ignition from Albertronics), stainless steel exhaust, Giannini aluminium sump & valve cover. Air-Cowling zinc & colour coated (powder-coating), Jetted 28mm Weber Carb, new Starter Motor & Alternator.

This set up allows for much more torque & power whilst being smoother than the original engine (Particularly the change in crank balance factor & porting / gas flow drilling of the head eliminate the vibration present with the original motor).

Achieved 35 BHP on similar set up on the rolling road (RGS MotorSport). I would not recommend rolling road tuning until after the engine is properly bedded-in.

New Gearbox

A new synchromesh gear box with 500 drive shafts.

New parts

Practically all new parts - those that came with black powder coating (such as petrol tank, suspension parts etc) were stripped, then zinc & colour powder coated for longevity.

Suspension

The suspension features rear progressive springs - 30mm lower (to soak up poor road surfaces), firmer sports shock absorbers (front and back) and a subtly lower (30mm) **Sports leaf spring. **This chassis tuning allows for a more civilised drive.

White leather interior with 500 L style quilting and leather door pockets.

Laminated front screen, H4 headlamp upgrade, Borrani Wheels with Borrani embossed caps & new tyres. A dual circuit brake system was fitted for safety.

The standard single circuit brake master cylinder was replaced by a **dual circuit master cylinder upgrade. The brake system is filled with DOT 5 Silicone brake fluid. **The benefits of this are that any future spill will not damage paintwork and it is not hygroscopic, so does not need to be drained down and replaced every couple of years

Original Tools / Spare tyre

The car comes with an original Jack and set of tools w/ toolbox. The Tools & Jack have been powder-coated to match other metalwork (RAL5012). The original spare tyre is also present.

Restore

Body was stripped of every nut, bolt and every fitting, bare metalled by hand, then media blasted and secured with 2k epoxy primer. All work was carried out on a rotisserie. The body was finished in a Fiat 2K White (Clear over base with a lacquer), then snagged after partial refit and painted again on the outside. The underside of this car is so good you could turn it upside down & each lunch on it! Better than standard soundproofing & carpet underlay.

Provenance / photographic record

Every stage of the restore was photographed as an evidenced record of the approach taken and what's under the paint - Pictures have been compiled into an eBook which adds to the vehicle's provenance (besides the eBook there are probably another 200 photographs which all pass onto the new owner).

The car also comes with a large provenance file going back to 1975 when the 2nd owner bought the car.

Email me for a link to the eBook with over 300 pictures showing every part of strip down & rebuild.

Happy to help with export enquiries. I have a tilt bed trailer, so can also assist with UK delivery.
