Cinquecento My 1994 Cinquecento SX 0.9


Welcome to the progress thread for my 1994 Fiat Cinquecento SX

Hello! - I have recently acquired a 94' Cinq SX, This will be my 5th Cinquecento & one I do not intend to split ways with.
I have gone back to what I started with 7 years ago when I bought my first car, a 1993 Cinquecento SX, Witch I kept till I bought a lovely red Sporting... witch I wrote off (n) and got a very cheap S witch I ran out of money to keep. :p

After a year or two on a scooter I bought a nice yellow Sporting witch I loved.. but unfortunately the massive amounts of rust was to much of a project for me, at the time given as it was my only car.

However I return, I bought this car only as a project/fun car and have another daily vehicle, along with a larger budget!

So enough of the blab, here is the beast.


Very clean, Silver SX with 39,000miles, No rust found :rolleyes: YET. only minor surface rust on suspension and brake components as you would expect with any car in the UK.
