1948-1955 FIAT 500 Topolino specifications


The tiny two-seater Topolino was launched in 1936 but after the war it came back in restyled 500B and 500C form. This is the latter and the only post-war version that came to the UK, and even then imports didn’t begin until 1954. Earlier cars have found their way here since though. Nearly all of the post-war series were roll-back cabriolets, but there is the odd estate version around and even a woodie. Expect to pay a premium for both. The little four-cylinder engines are quite perky but still very economical.
