1972 Fiat 500 L
Chassis no. 3012832
The Fiat 500:
The Fiat 500 needs no introduction. Originally launched in 1957, over the years some considerable improvements (both aethetically and technically) saw the light of day. It was September 1968 when Fiat launched a more lavishly equipped iteration of the 500 F it had on sale at the time, deemed to be called the 500 Lusso or in-short 500 L.
The 500 L is technically identical to the 500 F, using the uprated 499 cc engine producing a whopping 18 hp. The differentiation with the regular model was solely based on trim. The Lusso variant benefitted from tubular bumper overriders, giving the car a more dainty appearance. Further brightwork was installed on the windscreens and the roof drip rails. The most notable changes were made to the interior as the painted metal dash made way for a new anti-glare plastic variant and a trapezoid instrument cluster was installed. The upholstery was finished in a new pleated leatherette style, and more storage space was created with inserts in the door cards and a central tray.
This Fiat 500 L:
The motorcar on offer here, chassis number 3012832, was originally consigned to Terni in central Italy on the 24th of May 1972. The original Libretto depicks a provenance of just 3 owners, with the first one keeping hold of it until 1986 and the second until 2011.
The motorcar is presented in what is widely considered to being the best colour for a 500; Aquamarine. The interior is finished in Nero upholstery and carpeting, exactly to the correct specification when new. The car is presented in superb restored condition, the subject of aethetical and technical recommissioning works undertaken by one of its previous owners in Italy. The car benefits from a black underbody coating to protect the flooring against corrosion, a notorious achilles heel of the 500's. The car is absolutely rust-free, with consistent bodywork and razorsharp shutlines. A nice touch are the white-wall tyres, which are the cherry on the cake that a classic 500 is.
The engine fires up without any hesitatoin, and the gearbox shifts correctly too. It goes without saying all electrics are fully functioning, so its next owner can rest assured with plenty of enjoyable miles to come!
This 500 needs absolutely nothing, and is ready for its next custodian to use it as intended. Undoubtedly the best 500 L available, especially at this price-point.
