Description
Fiat - 850 - 1970
Can be picked up in: Italy - with Italian registration - 88748 km - 5 - In need of restoration (barn find)

An Italian classic.
More than 2 million units were built, but there are few left today.
This one in particular only had 4 owners in 49 years. With original registration document and number plates of the time.

While driving it, you will be brought to another world, where the gearbox lever must be moved gently and everything is mechanically controlled. To each action corresponds a reaction.
Brilliant, it’s very pleasant to drive. The engine has its own sound, everything works without electronics, in a genuine way.
This is not a highway car, but in any context it makes you forget you’re in 2019. If you drive it, this car really makes you travel back in time.
Safe drum brakes, driving with a little vivacity is really fun.

Mechanically ok, everything works as it should.
Brake pump, brake pistons, brake hoses, brake shoes, brake oil and engine oil were replaced last year. The engine has no leaks, it works as it should. If not possible, I can replace them at buyer's charge before the pick up.
The most critical point, the spare wheel compartment, is remarkably rust free.
It was surely fully repainted but it is in fair conditions now. The paint has become matte over the time and shows some minor bubbles. Bottom is healthy both inside and outside, as well as the doors interior. The car can be considered fully rust free.

Tyres are new, slightly smaller than those shown in photos.
It’s ready to go.

The vehicle can be viewed and tested in Luserna San Giovanni (TO) - Italy.
