Pics of again a one owner car from new with 32K on the clock, again never welded or painted (this is how we found it, not even been wiped down!). Stood in a collection of cars that were all originally part ex's at a main dealers, all of which were never sold on. We will be going back there again soon  Grin

Well thanks for all the positive comments folks  Grin This one has just been bought by us out there where the sun shines. Has been fully restored by a coachbuilder who has now retired with it still only 99% finished  Roll Eyes stupid things like brake pipes not fitted and the wiper motor, but can you spot what makes it so rare for an Italian Fiat 500?  Wink

Well spoted Heini, give yourself a pat on the back  Grin We had a RHD one just after christmas and never thought we would find another, but like busses , you wait for ages then two come along!!
Sev. Paul who does all the trips out there has been doing it for a very long time and has the contacts built up over years, but still he has been there for over a week now, looked at probably 40 odd cars and so far bought 4! Unfortunately as with everywhere, Italy has its fair share of badly described cars, so thousands of KMs are spent on wasted journeys  Roll Eyes G
