Tiny from Torino: 1963 Fiat 600 Viotti Coupe

Why We Like It

There were reportedly less than 100 of these Fiat 600 coupes bodied by coachbuilder Carrozzeria Viotti from 1956 to 1964, and it’s believed that only 14 are left in existence. Viotti was based in Turin, Italy and built bodies for Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat, and other notable makes from 1921 to 1964 and although they’re lesser-known than some of the others, it was the first Italian coachbuilding company to have a legitimate production line.

This car is said to have been repainted in its current blue in 2018, and the interior was refurbished in 2020 with two-tone light blue and ivory upholstery. We love the twin beltline moldings as well as the louvers and rear facing scoop on the engine cover out back. The little 13” wheels have cool wannabe-knock-off Fiat hubcaps, and the tiny chrome bumpers are too cute.

The car is powered by a 747cc Tipo 100 inline-four that pushes out a whole 25 horses through a 4-speed transaxle. That’s just enough to cruise around town and have fun without venturing onto the freeway. If you live in a hilly town or city then you might have some trouble making it up any incline, just like the original Fiat 500’s.

The seller mentions that the car received a tune up in 2018 and that it starts and runs nicely. We noticed that this car bid to only $10,599 on BaT in June 2020, and while there are virtually no comps to determine the value of the car, we think that amount is too low. On the other hand, we think the seller’s asking price is a little too optimistic, so maybe a price in between the two might be a good starting point for negotiation.
