    This #Fiat-600 – actually they’re 767cc – is from near the end of the model’s Italian production and was recently imported from Modena, Italy where it had three owners. It is incredibly rot-free under older paint that wears a few chips and scratches, apart from the left rear corner that’s been refinished after removing a small dent. Even the floorpan is straight and corrosion-free and the jacking points are undamaged – they’re usually hit or squashed. The tyres are decently treaded Savas on the front and halfworn Goodyears on the rear, with something unspeakably ancient and threadbare on the spare that needs putting out of its misery. The chrome is okay apart from the left front hubcap, which is a bit ‘cauliflowered’.

    The motor is tidy, with a new fuel filter and condenser. We couldn’t see the coolant (the header tank neck is longer than a finger) but the oil is clean and to ‘Max’. Since arriving, it’s had a new clutch and suspension joints. Inside, the seat and doorcard vinyl is in good order and probably isn’t as old as the rest of the car, plus the piping on the front seats has just been renewed. There are some cracks in the white plastic steering wheel, but none of the other fixtures and fittings are damaged or broken.

    It starts instantly and performance is on a par with an 850 Mini, making it far more usable than a #Fiat-500 . With new balljoints, there are no clonks from the suspension, the steering is nicely fluid and the brakes pull up straight, although it’s easy to wrong-slot the gearchange until you get used to it. No synchro on first on these, remember. No oil or water gauges to worry about, either – just a temperature warning light that stayed off. The #Fiat has not been registered yet, simply because Arun’s proprietor Nicholas Overall wants to keep the number of on-paper owners down, although it soon can be. The MoT runs until December, plus there’s some Italian paperwork with ACI tax stamps up until #1982 .

    SUMMARY

    EXTERIOR
    Straight, mostly as per factory, although it has had some paint.

    INTERIOR
    Probably a retrim, but lovely. New piping on the front seats.

    MECHANICALS
    Just serviced, so spot-on.

    VALUE ★★★★★★✩✩✩✩

    For Rare, especially this solid
    Against Mildly shabby in places

    SHOULD I BUY IT?
    It’s more money than a Fiat 500, but it’s a much better drive, too. And the rust-free condition makes it well worth investigating.
