  • Restored bodywork

  • Overhauled mechanics
  • New electrical system
  • Original plates


Presented in 1976 as a replacement for the successful 850T van, the Fiat 900T retained its floorpan and much of the bodywork, introducing a new front design, with an irresistibly attractive vintage appearance, and adopting the 903 cc, 35 cv engine from the Fiat 127. 

Just 3.8 meters long, the 900T is incredibly versatile and roomy for its small size and was sold in 11 different variants including the beloved Panorama, a seven-seater minibus with large glass surfaces and additional windows in the rear which continued the long and glorious tradition of the Turin company, which began with the 600 Multipla and continued with the 850 Familiare, of offering tiny and practical minibuses.

Adopted by the police and the army, used as an ambulance and in countless other ways, the 900T was for many years an important protagonist of Italian daily life and a familiar presence in large cities, where its compactness made it a precious work companion, and in historic towns, where it was capable of navigating through narrow streets with agility.

This 900T Panorama, with only three owners from new and a particularly low original mileage, has had only one owner for most of its life and has then passed into the hands of an enthusiast who overhauled the mechanics and started the restoration of the bodywork, which was recently completed by the seller.

  • The overhauled rear-engine, on which new piston rings have been mounted, is in very good condition, with correct compression.
  • The electrical system has been completely redone.
  • The brakes, clutch and steering system have been serviced and are in excellent condition.
  • The tyres are almost new, only used for a few test drives.
  • The bodywork has been completely restored and repainted in the original colours and does not present any  damage or defect.
  • The interior has been repainted in the original colour, and the metal structure of the seats has been restored and repainted.
  • All gaskets are new.

The seats have been reupholstered with period-correct materials.

Both outside and inside, this minibus is in remarkable condition and, thanks also to the original license plates, has retained an appearance of absolute authenticity.

Nice, practical and of great historical interest, the Fiat 900T, especially in the Panorama version, particularly enjoyable for the great brightness of the passenger compartment allowed by its large glass surfaces and for its extreme versatility, always proves to be extremely attractive and popular at gatherings.

Born to work, the Fiat 900Ts that have remained in good condition are rare and sought-after for their pleasantly vintage aesthetics, for the great ease of maintenance ensured by the robust and widespread Fiat mechanics and for their extreme practicality.


  • Just three owners from new
  • Original plates
  • Purchased by the seller in 2021
  • MOT valid until 2024

This 900T Panorama remained for most of its life with its first owner, who jealously preserved it and used it sparingly, covering most of the just 65,000 kilometers that this van has traveled in almost fifty years.

The second owner overhauled the mechanics and started the restoration of the bodywork, completed with care and passion by the seller, who bought it in 2021.

The car has always been kept in a good state of mechanical efficiency and was last MOTd in 2022.
Still equipped with its rare original plates, it will be delivered with its updated original registration documents.

Somehow similar in mechanical design and aesthetics to the venerated Volkswagen minibuses, the Fiat 900T offers a very similar driving experience and an even higher level of practicality.

The Panorama version, with a particularly pleasant  passenger compartment and extremely versatile, being able to transport up to seven passengers or bulky loads thanks to the folding seats, is a vintage car of great interest.

Starting from the solid base of a one-owner vehicle, always well maintained and with an extremely low mileage, this 900T Panorama has received loving care and a total restoration to an excellent standard and is presented in beautiful condition, with a pleasant two-tone bodywork, a welcoming interior and scrupulously overhauled mechanics.

The great availability of spare parts and accessories for its widespread mechanics make its management simple and economical and its unmistakable appearance will make it a sure protagonist at rallies and gatherings and much admired on the road, where it will certainly attract everyone's attention.

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.

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.
