Fiat’s charming little 500 was a popular choice throughout Europe in the late 1950s and remains so today. Specifically built to provide practical low-cost transportation to the people, it has become an enduring icon of Italian culture and this well-loved Italian brand. Although it was purpose-built for economy on a budget, the little Fiat’s small stature and fully independent suspension made it a pleasure to drive, and the 500 would come to define the company across the world.
Released in 1960 and based on the original 500, the Giardiniera benefited from front quarter lights, winding windows in the front doors and sliding windows at the rear. Although later saloon cars were built with front-hinged doors, the Giardiniera retained its suicide doors throughout production, making them one of its common and stand out feature. In addition, the sunroof running nearly the entire length of the car provided all occupants the opportunity for both fresh air and sunlight to flood the cabin.
This particular Fiat 500 Giardiniera has recently been restored to a very high standard by a Paris-based specialist. Now, after over 50 years, it represents a fantastic example of the most practical of Fiat’s iconic 500 and a testament to the reliability and durability of the Fiat 500 platform.
