Auction House
Chassis number 647374. Azzurro Aquamarina with a black vinyl top over beige vinyl and brown cloth. 499cc/22hp L-2, 4-speed, hub caps, whitewalls.

Evaluation: Good shiny paint, although there is some orange peel in it and there is surface rust poking through the door hinges. A few very small scuffs in the retractable top. Tidy underneath. The tires look older. Small niggles take almost nothing away from the cute factor. Everybody loves a 500.

Bottom Line: Everybody, including the folks at Barrett-Jackson who have garages full of trucks and muscle cars. Fiat 500s were always popular in Europe, with several million sold, but they’re rare enough on our shores that they get a lot of attention despite their economy car origins. This price is about right for one. What it lacks in speed per dollar it makes up in charm per dollar. And with gas prices at an average of $5.12 per gallon in Nevada, a fuel-sipping classic like this makes even more sense.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
