1958 Fiat 600 Multipla

The Fiat Multipla can appear to be a larger car in pictures than it is in real life. This small multi purpose vehicle is amazingly only 139 inches long and 57 inches wide, which is not much more than an original Mini. And in that small footprint, you had room for six passengers. How did Fiat do it, you ask? By using the rear engine platform from the 500 and positioning the driver and front passenger above the front axle, thus maximizing interior volume. About a quarter million Multiplas rolled off the assembly line from 1956 through 1969, often being employed as commercial vehicles or taxis. This example for sale in Switzerland appears to have lead a very easy, sheltered life.

1958 Fiat 600 Multipla

Splendid Multipla delivered brand new in Italy that only had two owners in 54 years. Extremely well cared for and in perfect driving order, original mileage, absolutely rust free, expertized as Veteran Vehicle. Commercial version of the Fiat 600, equipped with the 633c four cylinder engine and 29 horsepower. One of the first monospace of history, from 4 to 6 seats, spare wheels, manuals. Perfect car for historic events as well as a vintage assistance vehicle or as advertisering car.

It is rather amazing that after 54 years, this Multipla has seen only two owners. From its condition, it surely appears as such. With a top speed of under 60 mph and a 0-50 mph time of around 43 second, this is one of the slowest cars you can by, but there's no denying the Multipla's charm and uniquely Italian take on a small people carrier. While no price is listed, the very best Multipla would fetch anywhere from $25,000 to $35,000 at auction, so anything under $30,000 should be considered reasonably well bought.

    Very cute and amazing (space) efficient, but until you’ve seen one in person, you really don’t appreciate how incredibly tiny they are. Picture a 4-door Fiat 500 that seats 6…
