Fiat 500 Jolly originality

Hi guys,

I need your expertise on Fiat 500 Jolly.

I found a guy who is selling the attached car and he claims that it is original. From what I have read, this model is supposed to be very rare.

Do you know how to recognise its originality?

Thanks,

Manos

Re: Fiat 500 Jolly originality

It looks very different from the jollys I've seen online before.....this looks more "jolly roger" than Fiat jolly.....

The seats are classic. Looks like someone invested in a basket weaving course first.

Re: Fiat 500 Jolly originality

Its like a Jolly.
Only different!
Well its pink for starters.
We have some French chairs that have exactly the same seat base as that.
The main give away is they never made one using a F/L bodyshell.




Or at least that's what my expert in this field tells me

you can't say that!!!
all those owners with cars built after 1960 will think theirs are not original.. they may have paid huge sums for a "Replica"
