Working class: 1955 Fiat 500C Furgonetta

The post-World War II European economic and social reconstruction owes a tribute to vehicles like these, used by both large companies and small artisans.

In fact, large companies used these minivans mainly for customer assistance or small repairs on networks (in the case of utilities), while craftsmen such as blacksmiths, plumbers and mechanical workshops took on the investment of buying a vehicle like this to carry out their you work around the big cities or around country villages.

Being used until exhaustion, as already said other times, most of these vehicles were scrapped at the end of their productive life (since they could not be converted for “family” use) and therefore today only a few of them survive: this This model looks in very good condition (it has certainly been restored), has a correct look (with the exception of the taillights, probably installed after 1959) and still wears the original Turin number plate: it just needs to be bought and driven. Find it for sale at €15,000 (today $17,500) here in Torino, Italy.
