1956 Fiat 1100 103E

***Vendor supplied images***

  • Highly sought after ASI Gold Plate

The Appeal

Introduced by Fiat during their 50s and 60s golden age, the 1100/103 really captures Italy’s post-war optimism period in style. A compact little unibody, with pontoon styling, the friendly-looking motor was released in Tipo A - a more spartan, perhaps ‘traditionally Fiat’ example, and Tipo B - which is exactly what you’re looking at right here. The blueprint for the Italian carmaker was here, and it was an instant winner.

This example is highly original, having been family owned for its entire life, and comes beautifully preserved with ASI gold-plate accreditation.

  • Front indicator lights show some clouding, but all other lenses are bright and clean

  • Whitewall tyres are in need of replacement, with very little tread remaining
  • Underneath, the car is in excellent condition with only surface-level wear
