Lot 104: Fiat 850

Annual Yuletide Classic, Barons (18 December 2012)

Cars tend to start small and grow as they mature.  This was the case with the Fiat 850, which succeeded the 600.  With its 843 cc engine and 34 bhp, it was already much more car than its forerunner.  The Fiat 850 was launched in May 1964.  By the time it was taken off the market in 1971, almost 1,8000,000 had been sold without counting the 350,000 coupes and 124,000 convertibles. The pretty little 4 seater coupe was developed from the 850 saloon. Engine fitted at the rear comes in two sizes of 843cc and 903cc both giving respectable performance. Offered here is a very clean example of the 843cc, 850 Coupe, which, despite the 350,000 that were built, is said to be one of just 63 remaining registered on the UK's roads (from DVLA database). Finished in white with red interior and side flash, the car is thought to have covered a mere 39,000 miles, which is believed, by the vendor, to be genuine. The car is described as being in excellent condition and would make the perfect basis for an historic rally car. Ready to drive away with tax and MoT through to next February. Very rare, very collectable and a great investment.
