Classic Italian micro-mini car.
This car is a nice European Fiat 500 L. "L" stands for "Lusso" or luxury in Italian. The L has a few nicer features like the fuel guage and long instrument panel. This car runs and drives well! Brakes work well, air cooled engine starts right up and the 4 speed manual gear shifting is tight and clean. Lights and gauges work. The gas tank is approximately 5 gallons, and it gets about 50-60 miles to the gallon. The engine is located in the rear compartment, and the battery, fuse box, and gas tank are in the front.
This car was restored in Naples, Italy about 2 years ago. The car has a standard Utah title, but the original Italian title is still with the car. At that time the following items were installed new:
* New paint job with Giannini emblems
* New bumpers
* New floor vinyl
* New seat upholstery
* New carpet
* New door panels
* New convertible vinyl top
* New engine rebuild (original engine)
* New floor pans
* New wiring harness
* New Giannini oil pan
* New Giannini air filter cover and cone
* New Giannini valve cover
* New hubcaps
* New battery
* New tires
All of these items are still in excellent shape, although the paint job does show some minor blemishes and cracks. I just went through the car completely, changing the oil and tuning it up. The following items are brand new on the car:
* New CV boots
* New spark plugs
* New fuel filter
* New master brake cylinder
* New thermostat
As mentioned, this car has some custom Giannin sport upgrades. The tires, including the spare, are near new. The glass is in good shape, however there are some minor scratches and wiper scuffs on the windshield. Battery tests good. Keys and locks all work, however there is no key for the rear engine deck lid lock. Chrome is in good shape. The underbody of the car is undercoated with rust inhibitor. This car runs great. The car also has the original Fiat tool kit. Also included is a jack and roadside emergency reflectors. Overall, a super nice car for it's age.

From Wikipedia The Fiat 500 is a car produced by the Fiat company of Italy between 1957 and 1975, with limited production of the Fiat 500 K estate continuing until 1977. The car was designed by Dante Giacosa. Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 3 metres (~10 feet) long, and originally powered by an appropriately-sized 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city cars.
