Fiat 500 Car Restoration Current Restorations

If you have a Fiat 500 that needs restoring, repairs or service we would be delighted to provide you free consultation and advice on your Fiat 500 Car Restoration or rebuild.

Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 2.97 metres (9 feet 9 inches) long, and originally powered by an appropriately sized 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term “small car” and is considered one of the first city cars.

We are currently restoring a 1968 Fiat 500F. The F spans two periods of 500 production, the D and the L. As such, it is the most frequently misidentified model. Between 1965 and 1969 the F carried the same badging as the D, but the two models are distinguishable by the positioning of their door hinges. The D has “suicide doors”, the F produced from June 1965, at last featured front-hinged doors.

We can ‘breathe new life’ into your classic Fiat 500 car restoration, or repair any aspect of the car.

We have been commissioned to Restore The Fiat 500, as you can see the body as it arrived to us was in extremely poor condition, alot of it due to previous poor workmanship with majority of areas ‘patched up’ with panels riveted on top of the rust.

Plenty of panels have been sourced which is great for the client as it would be less time consuming than fabricating all the panels required.

However one of the only major panels that couldn’t be sourced was the rear seat panel which the rear suspension mounts to, which we fabricated, along with both lower inner and outer firewall panels.

We are the experts when it comes to restoring classic cars like the Fiat 500.
