CUT-AWAY 1959 FIAT 600. - $5,950 (Tarzana CA)


Recommended Posts

Not cheap. Unlikely you could get $6000 for a regular 1959 Fiat, but it is interesting. . . . .

More photos in ad.

Is anybody bothered that this does not come with a title?

Awe c'mon! I wanted to drive that thing across the country!

 

Old motorcycle cutaway engines get a premium, then again they can be displayed in a moderately sized office. This is really cool. If I was a Fiat guy I would have to think hard about it. I saw something very similar to this on a tv show, it may have been in a Fiat museum? they said it was originally used as a training tool.

They were a popular project for High School auto shop classes back in the 1960's and early 1970's. When I did my teacher training back in the 1980's several school shops I was at had something similar gathering dust at the back of the shop. Usually based on something small like this Fiat. 

 They were a great way to introduce grade 10's and 11's to basic vehicle construction.

Usually some small car donated by a parent or former student. 

 Cars today are too complicated and young people don't generally seem to have the ability to stick with a laborious task to build things like this anymore.

Seems like a lot of money for something that is in reality a dust collector.
