The Fiat 600 was produced from 1955 to 1969 in Turin, Italy. This Particular 1959 Fiat 600 is a great example of a survivor car and shows what a rear engine, water-cooled city car was meant to be. The Fiat 600 is simple, less than 11 feet long, and will get you to your destination in true Italian style, fashionably late. The Large “suicide doors” Also making entering and exiting the small vehicle very easy. The vehicle does have a functional back seat as well.
This particular car is a great example and everything works, even the map light. The car recently had the gear box gone through and resealed, and replaced the starter cable. If you are not familiar, the Fiat 500 and Fiat 600 both use a mechanical cable to activate a switch located on the starter itself. The car fires up quickly and smoothly. The gear box shifts smooth and consistently while the engine purrs. The gear box has syncros on all the gears but first. The Choke and cold start work great. The steering and brakes work excellent for a vehicle of its age. Unlike the Fiat 500 and VW beetles, the water cooling system on the 600 provides adequate cabin heating and defrosting.
