1969 Fiat 500 Jolly for sale in London
When Fiat’s chairman Gianni Agnelli needed a “land dinghy” to carry aboard his 82-foot yacht, the Agneta, he asked his design team at Fiat to create a small, light vehicle that could easily be lowered off the boat for local transportation. They came up with the Jolly.
The first Jollys were built on the two-cylinder Fiat 500 platform and then modified by the Italian coachbuilder Ghia. This involved removing the roof and doors and adding wicker seats and a fringed canvas top. A version based on the larger 600 soon followed. It is believed that no more than 400 Jollys were built, between 1958 and 1969. They were briefly sold in the United States and are very rare in Europe.
Our Fiat Jolly is a 1969 Fiat 500 110F and has been fully restored and converted to Jolly specifications. The entire body of the Fiat 500 was stripped to bare metal, restored, and repainted by craftsmen in Italy. Finished to an extremely high standard and painted beautifully in Powder Blue with bright Chrome details. Complemented by matching Powder Blue 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 concours condition. This is the perfect vehicle for the Summer months.
With fewer than 100 real Jollys estimated to still survive, here is the chance to own one of the finest small cars ever built.
