1968 Fiat 500L - Fully Restored Iconic Italian City Car

This 1968 Fiat 500 is one of the cleanest examples you'll find of the iconic Italian city car. Featuring a professional nut and bolt restoration by famed Lancia Aurelia expert restorer Franco Di Piero, his build exemplifies top-notch craftsmanship and accurateness.

The Fiat was a one-owner vehicle belonging to a woman in the North-Easter Italian region of Friuli Venezia Guilia who used the vehicle for her daily commute to work as a school teacher. The vehicle was in original condition, aving never been involved in an accident, nd in great mechanical shape before being acquired by the restorer.

The decision to completely restore the vehicle was made so the vehicle could be presented as a surprise gift from the owner of the body shop to his daughter for her 18th birthday. The restoration process began in January of 2008 and was finished in June of 2009. When the vehicle was presented as a surprise birthday gift, he daughter didn't accept the vehicle as she wanted a Smart car instead. The 500 was sold to its current owner who brought the vehicle to the United States in July of 2010. The mileage on the vehicle upon completion of the restoration was 80,000 km. Since being brought to San Francisco, he current owner has only driven the Fiat 1,150 km with the current mileage at 81,150 kilometers. When not driven, he Fiat is garaged.
