1946 Fiat 1100 508C
The Fiat 1100 was introduced in 1937 and produced until 1953. Initially launched as the Fiat 508 C or the Balilla 1100, it took over the Fiat 508 Balilla. The 508 C boasted a refined, modernized body compared to the original 508 Balilla, along with a larger overhead valve engine and an independent front suspension.
In 1939, the model underwent updates and a complete renaming, simply becoming the Fiat 1100. However, production of the last series concluded in 1953, leading to the replacement of the Fiat 508 C by the Fiat 1100/103.
This Fiat still retains its well-preserved original upholstery. Some components like lights and trim parts have been replaced over time.
