The Fiat 500 of the years 1957 to 1975 was a small car from the car manufacturer Fiat. It was called the Nuova 500 to distinguish it from the Topolino; the Nuova and the Topolino had nothing in common technically. From 1957 to 1977, including the estate version “Giardiniera” and some special models, 3,702,078 Fiat 500s were built.
This little red Fiat is no ordinary one. It just underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration by our friend Edward Obara.
Edward Obara is the founder of OBARA Racing. OBARA Racing converted various vehicles for rally/racing use between 1976 and 1986. He won the Polish rally championship in Group 2 up to 700 cc with his team in 1980 in a Fiat 126p that had also been converted by him. Today, as a senior citizen, he still enthusiastically restores Fiat 500s and Fiat 126s. Edward Obara built this car with increase 750 ccm pushing incredible 35PS. Not only the engine was upgraded, also the Suspension and everything around to make a quirky little City racer. See the pictures of the restoration here.
Mr. Obara is building a hot 500 per year during his spare time while enjoying his pension. It is built with so much love, time and experience, which you cannot calculate on a price. We even go as far as to say, this is one of the best, driveable 500 there is.
Take your chance to be the next owner of this incredible Cityflitzer.
