Fiat 1500 Cabriolet/Coupe
Cabriolet,2 doors,4 seats
Launched in 1960 the Fiat 1500 Cabriolet/Coupe had similar styling to the Fiat-Osca model, although minus the other cars bonnet bulge. With only a 1481cc engine the 1500 Cabriolet/Coupe was also slower than the Oscar model although its performance was far from disappointing.
Standard equipment for both the 1500 Cabriolet and Coupe included servo assisted front disc brakes and a generous level of interior trim. The body itself was styled by Pininfarina and was extremely elegant. Production of the 1500 sports range lasted until 1967.
