FIAT 500 4-SEATER (1939-40)

4-seater cabriolet.

Announced April '39 as a UK-only special with just about room for four. Lower overall gearing a penalty; will have semi-elliptics at the back. Amazing economy and usual viceless handling, but 500s are brutes to work on as everything's so small and cramped. Body tends to rust away at the back and most survivor will have sill problems too.
