Fiat History Video

Found this whilst doing the normal youtube trawl- some interesting stuff but goes a bit off at the end! Enjoy...

(appologies if this is a re-post.)

Re: Fiat History Video

yeh i noticed that. a lot of car missing aswell, inc the mk1 punto which i think was one of the most important cars for fiat in the last couple of decades.

LMFAO at the brava - the only pic out of the lot taken in a scrapyard

Re: Fiat History Video

fiat made lots of stuff during WWII, it's shoddy build quality and reliability helped the allies win. even in those days italian meant cheap and nasty.

fiat (iveco) still make a lot of military equipment. would you believe britain's army use the Fiat-Iveco Light Multirole Vehicle (aka LMV).

That's ok... That Punto at the end looked suspiciously like a Bravo, and where was the Sedici?

Notice they didn't know the name of some e.g. 4:00 the Seicento

Re: Fiat History Video

'Tis indeed a bravo.

Its a Video that as many have pointed out is absolutly littered with mistakes but I mainly thought the pre 1950 stuff was worth looking at. It's a whole time in fiats history which has been somewhat overshadowed by the big players of that era. Some of which are truly classy looking cars, but i wonder what the fiat repuatation was like back then?
