History :

The Fiat 600 is a car produced by the Italian car manufacturer FIAT, built from 1955 to 1969. [2] It is considered the icon of the Italian economic boom.


After World War II FIAT was led by Vittorio Valletta, who was entrusted with the task of motorizing the new republican Italy, as had already been attempted and partially achieved through the “Topolino” model. If in the thirties the “Mickey Mouse” project had been scarcely innovative, in the fifties it was certainly outdated.


Valletta commissioned Dante Giacosa to build the new car: an arduous task, given that the company had truly modest potential.


The small Fiat subcompact was presented on March 9, 1955 in Geneva, in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni.


Equipped with two doors (in the first versions produced up to May 1964 with rear hinged doors) and with a discreet roominess for four people, it was equipped with a newly designed engine, the “100”, located in the rear position, of 633 cm³, delivering 21.5 hp (equivalent to 15.8 kW) at 4 600 rpm, capable of propelling the car up to 95 km / h. The list price was 590,000 lire.


The “600”, born as a popular car, but not entirely super-utility car, will have an astonishing sales success and, after a few months, the waiting time for delivery will exceed one year. Strategic ingredients of the success were the competitive but not cheap price, good equipment and quality for the price, good habitability and good road behavior which, combined with the good gearbox, also gave driving satisfaction despite the small engine. The winning weapon was also the low cost of ownership: 14 km with a liter and, with a fiscal power of 9CV, a road tax of only 10,000 lire. [3]


It should be remembered that, on the occasion of the presentation of the Fiat 600, television, at a time when Rai did not advertise on television, broadcast a short film on the new car, prepared by Cinefiat and a typical example of editorial advertising.
