Often when dealing with restoration we rely on “hearsay”, or on information not supported by adequate material, which almost always inevitably leads to mistakes. Here we have tried to enclose all the information to face a philologically and historically correct restoration. We talk about colors, combinations, suppliers and individual components. All the information is based on irrefutable paper documents, spare parts catalogs, workshop manuals and overall finishing of the Fiat itself, the result of a meticulous and long research, made for pure passion of the 500. In addition to an entire chapter dedicated to restoration with some advice on buying the car and how to deal with it.
