1968 Fiat 500 for 5 Grand

One of my favorite cars is the original Fiat 500. Produced from 1957 through 1975, the cinquecento was Italy's answer to the VW Beetle and was sold sparingly in the US for only a few years. The US cars are distinguishable by their oversized headlights. This is an original Euro-market 1968 Fiat 500 (F?) for sale on Craigslist in Southern Maryland for only $5,000.


Most Fiat 500s in the USA that are in halfway-decent condition have been selling for around $10-15k for the last few years, which makes this an interesting find. It doesn't appear to be a heap, and even if it needed some fixin' up it is still a great deal - parts are very easy to find on eBay and from Europe. The car has an aftermarket roof and tail lights (and is that a satellite radio antenna?), which imply that somebody has at least been looking after this car recently. The background hints that it may have even been garaged! And it may or may not be for sale by Superman.


Just finding one of these for sale in Maryland is interesting enough for me, but the price is great. I just wish I could afford to spend any money right now, because I have wanted one of these for years. When I lived in Amsterdam, I was even working with a shop in Holland and supplier in Italy to restore and export Fiat 500s to America (surprise: didn't work out). The last one I checked out was in DC two years ago and was $12k firm, and it wasn't perfect. Somebody snap this up, it's been on Craigslist for over a month! Contact Carlton at two four zero, four three one, ninety-four thirty-nine. If you still want something even cheaper, check out this $500 Fiat Nuova 500 in Texas!

  1. Nah, the 500 is barely a car with its two cylinder engine. Besides, if you want two cylinder Fiat, try this Fiat 126 in Philadelphia for half the price of your Fiat 500. The 126 was the replacement for the 500, so think of it as evolution. No affiliation with the seller.

  2. I saw that 126 ad, but that car just doesn't get me excited. The 500 is one of the cutest, quirkiest, most classic designs - even with it's wimpy 2-cyl engine (my car only has 3) I still want one. Who really needs to go 60 mph anyway??

  3. Fiat 500 car in general is really cute and unique. But the latest model of Fiat 500 car is much better and nice. The style, the color and the overall appearance was really great. It was the coolest car I’ve ever seen. I’m sure you will love this car as much as I do.

  5. I had a Fiat 500 back in 1980, and it was old then.

    I used it for a 100 mile round trip from Cardiff (Wales) to Reading and back.

    Little by little it fell apart during the trip because of the engine vibration and poor maintenance. First the Clutch packed up (the adjusting nut had vibrated down the thread) then it started to leak oil from the rocker cover which had been poorly repaired. Finally, on a strech of road in complete darkness, the exhaust detached and fell accross the ignition cable; Total loss of Power and lights! Car abandoned and a long walk home!

    metropolis than girls, this determine can be a
    little bit deceptive. There is a high number of homosexual males, in addition to immigrant employees, who skew the
    quantities. All of the areas on the list seem to be massive towns that
    most likely have comparable types of populations. If you're just seeking to get a excellent spot to party then it is wonderful. If you're seeking for a boyfriend or husband,
