It's getting tougher and tougher to stand out at your local car show or cruise in. However, if you are looking for a ride that you are all but guaranteed to never see another one like it, then take a look at this very well done custom 1971 Fiat 500.

If you are familiar with Fiats, you will immediately see that this isn't your run of the mill 500. This gorgeous car was the beneficiary of a $55,000 restoration that was finished in about 2010. The restoration included a brand new 4-cylinder Subaru EA81 from Zcars Performance Engineering, a 5-speed conversion kit, black diamond clutch, coil-over shock kit with upper and lower control arms, front disc brake conversion, leather interior, 12" cast aluminum silver ray wheels, and a 70-hour paint job.

So trust us when we say, there aren't too many Fiats out there like this!

The body is ridiculously straight and was shot with only the highest quality PPG products to the tune of a 70-hour $6,000 paint job. The look is incredible and thanks to the updated suspension and stance of the car, this look will stand the test of time.

Inside you'll find a fully custom leather interior with small touches on the seat that pays tribute to the Italian manufacture. No corners were cut on the inside, all the gauges work as they should, as do the lights, blinkers, horn, radio etc.. Long story short, it's a great place to log miles from.

The engine and transmission have approximately 8,000 miles on them since the restoration in 2010. The Subaru powerplant fires up easy and because the car is so light, really will surprise you for how quick it is. If you aren't familiar with the Subaru E81, the engine was originally designed & developed as an Aircraft Engine and then later modified for Automotive use when Subaru pulled out of the aviation business. The EA81 compact design as well as the low weight/power ratio makes it a highly recommended power plant for a car like this and it is practically bulletproof. Unlike other imports, the engine is watercooled, so from the underside you can see the custom hoses running on the bottom of the car from the radiator to the engine. Thanks to the coil-over suspension, updated engine, 5-speed transmission and Falken tires, this car will easily do 100mph if you wanted. And you won't believe the looks you'll get when you are passing people on the highway in this car.

Don't miss your chance to own one of the most unique cars we've had the pleasure to see roll in our shop. Call today! We can help out with shipping and financing as well.
