Lot #321 - The Fiat 850 is a small, longitudinal-rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive car with a technical design and evolution of the very successful Fiat 600. The original body was designed and built by Bertone, with some styling changes coming in later years of production, along with a stronger 903cc, 52hp engine with a 4-speed manual transmission. This original Spider has had long-term ownership and was garaged for a long period of time in San Diego, CA. The previous owner had restored the body and paint, reupholstered the seats and had rechromed some of the brightwork. Recently, Classic Showcase completed the cosmetic and mechanical restoration, which included a repaint to the engine and engine bay in the proper colors, a major tune-up, a carburetor rebuild and a full service to the engine. The hydraulic system, suspension, fuel system and electrical system were also gone through. The tires are new and the rims are newly powder-coated, with Fiat chrome hubcaps. A new exhaust system and battery were installed, the previously restored interior was freshened up, the convertible top bows were restored, a full service was performed and a lot of little details were attended to make this ready for a pleasurable drive.
