This 500 My Car is a great example of the rarest model with a sunroof. On June 28 of this year, this car will turn 51 years old.
500 Francis Lombardi My Car is a rarer model than the Fiat 500 series produced by Fiat.
The front is original, so it indicates that the car has never suffered rear-end collisions.
The last owner owned it for 10 years. This 500 My Car has spent the last 10 years in the city of Lecce. It has always been parked in a garage and never been in the rain.
This 500 My Car boasts original details such as:
Front grille (cars on sale do not often have it or are equipped with replicas, since the grille is the most exposed spot to shocks and deformations on a vehicle)
Fiberglass dashboard with embossed finish.
Specific speedometer indicator with gray background.
Original seats with oversized and reclining backrest.
Original 3-spoke wooden steering wheel branded Ferrero.
Original chrome gear lever and handbrake frieze.
New upholstery and door panels.

Bodywork was repainted some years ago.
The last service was carried out on 28/06/2019 at 90,000 km. On this occasion, the internal drive shaft headset and engine oil were replaced.
