Available for auction is this 1971 Fiat 500 Jolly finished in Green over tan Rattan interior. Beginning in 1958, Fiats were shipped to the Italian design house Ghia where they underwent a conversion to an open-air doorless design with wicker seats and a removable fabric canopy roof. Known as the Jolly, these Fiats were intended for short-distance transportation in wealthy seaside yachting communities. This 1971 example was fully restored by Affari Sbullonati of Rome, Italy, and comes equipped with an air-cooled inline-twin engine, 12″ steel wheels, a USB radio, a fringe soft top, and more. This Fiat is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Italy.
This example is finished in Green (362) with a tan-striped fringed soft roof. Details include dual chrome side mirrors, chrome bumpers and trim, and a louvered engine lid. It rides on a set of 12” steel wheels finished in green with chrome hubcaps and whitewall tires.
The open cabin features Rattan front and rear seating as well as a body-colored upper dashboard and a brown lower dashboard and carpets. Accessories include a storage tray, a chrome grab handle, floor mats, a Veglia speedometer, and a modern USB radio. The seller confirms that all gauges, lights, and accessories remain fully functional.
Power comes from an air-cooled 500cc inline-twin engine that drives the rear wheels by way of a 4-speed synchronized manual transaxle. The Fiat 500 comes equipped with four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel drum brakes as standard. The seller notes the drivetrain has been restored and that there are no outstanding service items at this time.
This sale will include a clean title.
