1959 Fiat 1100 Station Wagon

What a funky little car this is. A station wagon with suicide doors.

The seller says this car is complete. The engine and transmission are out of the car, but included with the car. According to the seller, thare are a "ton of spare parts in the back".

This car appears have have a few small dents and dings but, by old Italian car standards, it's relatively rust free. (It looks like the most serious is on the lower right quarter panel, with some possibly starting on the left rocker panel.)

The seller includes just 5 pictures, but they are very clear. There are no pictures of the interior however, which is a little scary. In the pictures you'll see another Fiat 1100 parked behind this one. Buying a car like this from someone who knows and presumably likes the cars is always a good thing.

I'd love to see this car restored, painted Ferrari red and sporting a set of nice of aftermarket wheels. It would make a really cool show car.

I have this car I purchased it for
$200.00 and cost me around 400.00 to tow it back to Illinois. It is being restored. The interior was missing the rear fold-down seat,the engine that was out of the car was not the correct fiat 1100 engine, a rebuilt 1400cc dohc will be installed restored, body work has been completed I probably won't do Ferrari red but something closer the to original colors this car will live again, George
