Found on Gumtree in July 2019, this 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla was owned and used daily by the original owner from ’59 to ’71 then sold to Robert B, a Leather Craftsman in handmade shoes ,used on a daily basis as a “Work Van” till 1979, where it was taken off the road due to a head gasket issue and sat in his shed till I purchased !
The licence papers show -Yes it is still Registered!
