FIAT 508C (1100)

Saloon, convertible saloon, cabriolet.

Best of the late thirties touring Fiats with three-bearing, 32bhp engine and alloy head, plus X-braced frame, coil-spring ifs, and a well-spaced four-speed 'box. Looks rather like a 1500 with same recessed door handles and pillarless doors (caution), but headlamps out of doors. 70/75mph and 35mpg, but watch out for front-end trouble.
