FIAT 518 ARDITA

Tourer, saloon, 7-seater saloon, sports saloon.

Italian equivalent of the Model-B Ford using six-cylinder chassis components including those excellent dual-circuit hydraulic brakes. Short-stroke Balilla-type engine has lots of torque and will rev, too. Synchromesh but rather odd ratios. Two choices of engine, and two of wheelbase, but desirable combination is 54bhp 2-litre 118AS unit in short chassis with wire wheels. No UK imports after 1935.
