1950 FIAT 500C Giardiniera Station Wagon

This 1950 Fiat 500C Giardiniera Station Wagon is an extremely original find that's in need of complete restoration. Metallic green with brown interior and retractable soft-top. This rare and sought-after "woody" has been sitting in storage for several years and is not currently running. A fun and exciting project for any Fiat or micro-car collector. It's both complete and highly original but the wood is in a state of deterioration at this point in time. For 1949, the Topolino was given a dramatic facelift, as the 500C. A wider horizontal grille looked more up-to-date, and the tail of the coupe and cabriolet was lengthened. A new model was the Giardiniera, literally "gardener," a compact little station wagon. It was built by Fiat's in-house Carrozzerie Speciali operation, which, as the name implied, was a special coachwork division. Some of these (like this particular example) had real wood on the exterior, others had stamped metal panels that could be painted in contrasting colors or treated in the manner of faux timber. The 500C remained in production through 1954 and represents a true milestone for the industry as an early multipurpose 'people carrier'.
