Adding a nice livery or racing stripes can make a car’s performance increase without any changes to the drivetrain. This is an optical illusion, but I stand by this concept with the simple idea that “It looks fast.” I’ve been debating adding racing stripes to my Mini Cooper, as it is a base model and not very quick, to give it the impression of performance and not just good gas mileage. Racing stripes are a solid choice to give the illusion that a small, slow call is fast, but what about a whole livery?
“The Fiat received a restoration about seven years ago,” the listing states. “The body is straight as an arrow. All doors, trunk and hood are aligned like they should from factory. It has always been garage- kept and well-cared. All the exterior chrome, trim, latches and bumperettes are like new. Underneath, the original floor pans are in great shape!”
The blue exterior extends to the door panels and dash, which complements the black vinyl seats and matching carpet. This is a very spartan car but has the iconic Fiat fabric vinyl top that can be rolled back.
Power is provided by a rear-mounted 500cc engine paired with a four-speed manual transmission. The listing states that the engine bay is well detailed and has a “really nice” exhaust note.
“This car drives exceptionally well, you can take it to the car shows & for weekend cruises,” the listing states. “Definitely gets a lot of attention and questions at the Cars and Coffee.”
