Continuing the appealing boxy styling established by the 127, Fiat’s baby replacement for the 500 looked just the ticket to motorise a generation of trendy young Italians. The air-cooled two-cylinder engine stubbornly remained slung out to the rear, despite Fiat’s move to FWD elsewhere in the range, and performance was leisurely in the extreme. But it’s cheap as chips to run today, and thanks to a long production run in Italy and then Poland, there’s still a plentiful supply of cars and parts. The usual story of rust and unreliability keeps its image low-key.
