The Fiat 500L was on sale for just four years between September 1968 and 19872 before the new Fiat 126 was introduced. Experts at Classic Car Auctions said the car was “super rare”, making it an excellent opportunity for historic collectors to secure one.

The model is presented in a Gloss Balck with a new smart black interior.

The car is a left-hand drive model and is available from a private collection.

It is understood the car was subject to an older restoration but the model has continued to stand the test of time.

Classic Car Auctions confirms the car will be supplied with a fresh MOT which is valid until the end of January 2022.

They have estimated the model is valued between £8,000 and £10,000 making it an ideal price for a collector.

A thorough check on the model has revealed the car was in a good condition with its interior and exterior considered to be in a very good state.

Alongside the rare Fiat, Classic Car Auctions has also revealed a range of unique models will also be included in the auction.

An elegant 1978 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II is estimated to sell in the auction for between £8,000 and £10,000 despite its good condition.

The model has completed just over 94,000 miles despite being over 40 years old and six former owners.

The car will be sold with its fabulous history file which includes two service books with 18 stamps.

An aspirational 1967 Jaguar 3.4 S-Type will also be available in the historic auction.

The car is finished with a Silver Blue paintwork and a light grey leather interior although experts say some attention to this would take the car to the “next level”.

The previous owner held the model for 30 years with the model having been dry stored for the past seven years.

Classic Car Auctions said the model has been recently recommissioned and could sell for between £12,000 and 15,000.

Also offered in the collection is a unique 1955 Ford F100 Pickup truck finished in a stunning Turquoise Blue.

Experts say work on the model has only just been finished with a new bespoke interior also installed.

The car is topped off with a new set of American Mag wheels and new white-letter tyres which bring the car to life.

Valued at between £20,000 and £25,000, the car is one of the most expensive to hit next month’s auction.

Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager said: “We are delighted with the growing lot list that we have consigned for our first sale of 2021.

“Even though the sale is taking place online, our expert team are still able to hear, touch and see all the magnificent cars as they arrive at our storage facility, which creates a virtual showroom of choice for all our buyers.

“We hope to be able to offer pre-sale viewings by appointment prior to the auction day.”
