1965 Fiat 500 F 8 Bulloni Giannini TV


  • Very collectible 'eight-bolt' version of the 500 F - produced from March to November 1965
  • Only one previous owner - with original registration papers
  • Retains its period Borrani rims and completely original sheet metalwork
  • Enhanced with upgraded carburettor, twin pipe exhaust and auxiliary instruments

The Appeal

With almost four million examples of the Fiat 500 produced over a period of eighteen years, collectors are always on the lookout for the rarest variants, and this 1965 Fiat 500 F Giannini TV 'eight-bolt' is a particularly sought-after model.

Built only between March and November 1965, the coveted 'eight-bolt' cars owe their name to the number of fastening bolts securing the front doors to the pillar. Furthermore, this example is a very special Giannini Turismo Veloce (TV) model that is highly sought after by enthusiasts. This rare car is in fantastic condition, with only one previous registered owner. We are assured that the sheet metal is completely original, with no signs of accidents or repairs, and apparently needs no work. The interior is equally well-preserved and we are informed that the mechanicals are in equally excellent condition.

For those looking for a classic Fiat 500 of a higher standard than the others, this is the ideal candidate.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
