Fiat’s long-running 500 Topolino gave way to a new 600 model in 1955. The new car, named for its nominal displacement, had a 633-cubic centimeter overhead-valve, water-cooled inline four cylinder engine which provided a useful increase in power over the two-cylinder 500. Due to its “just right” size and performance, the 600 was immediately popular and remained in production for 15 years, with more than 2.5 million built. During that time, there were several variants, with the most charismatic undoubtedly being the 600 Jolly.
The father of the Jolly was Fiat’s chairman Gianni Agnelli, who wanted a small car to carry aboard his 82-foot ketch, the Agneta, during port stops in the Mediterranean Sea. As it was small and light, it could easily be lowered over the side for local transportation.
Our Fiat Jolly is a 1962 Fiat 600 D which has been fully restored and converted to Jolly specificationsat the hands of an acknowledged Jolly expert. The entire body of the Fiat 600 was stripped to bare metal, restored, and repainted by craftsmen in Italy. Finished to an extremely high standard and painted beautifully in Giallo Chiaro (Light Yellow) with bright Chrome details. Complemented by matching Yellow and Chrome rims with White-walled tyres, this iconic Classic always attracts admiring onlookers. The drivability of the car is equally as pleasurable, gear changes are smooth, allowing for easy City driving.
Hand crafted wicker seats, rattan floor mats, a quality fringed surrey top, and the gorgeous windshields are fitted to finish the Jolly look, all are in superb condition. This is the perfect vehicle for the Summer months.
With fewer than 100 real Jolly’s estimated to still survive, here is the chance to own one of the finest small cars ever built.
