The Fiat 508 C was first introduced in 1937.
It was powered by a 1,089 cc four-cylinder overhead-valve engine rather than the earlier Balilla’s 1-litre unit. Power was up by a third, to 32 PS (24 kW) at 4,000 rpm.
Drive was to the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox, and for the period, its comfort, handling, and performance were prodigious,making it “the only people’s car that was also a driver’s car”.
Unusual for a modestly priced car of the time was the independent front suspension, while the rear had a leaf sprung live axle.
According to the manufacturer top speed was 110 km/h (68 mph).
Here we have a Fiat 508 C Touring Superleggera with the 1100 cc in running condition but ready for for restoration.
It comes with Registro Fiat Italiano.
