A superb example of Fiat’s widely-loved Topolino. Recently out of long-term family ownership and subject to a full restoration in Italy. A welcome addition to virtually any collection.
This charming 1954 500C Belvedere estate is a wonderfully restored Topolino, coming to us from long-term single-family ownership. According to the previous owner, this car belonged to his mother’s family in Italy, and she fondly recalled riding around in it as a child. It benefits from a recent and extensive restoration done in Italy and presents in excellent condition, finished in a lovely two-tone Verde Chiaro combination over a brown interior. Light green inset panels provide a pleasing contrast to the primary body color, while the paint quality and detailing is to a standard rarely seen on a restored Topolino. The original brightwork and trim pieces are in good order, with some light pitting evident on the chrome bumpers on close inspection.
