French title

It is one of the most beautiful versions of the Fiat 514 that we offer today, a desirable Spider. It was acquired by its current owner in 1965. As a wreck, the Fiat then rested in a garden when it was bought for a few Francs by the man who still keeps it today. However, it was only a few years ago that a restoration was undertaken. The bodywork was completely restored and received a very beautiful dark blue paint, while the passenger compartment, the convertible top, the fittings were refurbished. The upholstery and the hood were notably produced by Espace Sellerie 3000 for a total of € 7,400. This last month of January, the engine was overhauled, including a drain as well as a control and cleaning of the ignition and carburetion system. Today, this Fiat is in a very good state of presentation, the paint was applied with art, and the upholstery very well done. The set is going to delight it and above all, this Fiat is in a good working condition. We were able to drive it on the streets of Fontainebleau and we noticed good reactions from the car (like passers-by). The engine runs well and starts well, the gears shift easily and the braking is quite honorable. It is a car full of charm that this Fiat 514 Spider, which has become extremely rare today and what is more, which is accompanied by a great story.
