Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1937 1500 6C Barchetta for sale. This stunning little Barchetta wears an all-aluminum body of extremely pretty proportions making it the quintessential Italian roadster. The 1500 6C Barchetta is freshly painted in a very pale cream and presents beautifully.
The FIAT 1500 was a new design that was first shown to the public at the Milan Motor Show in November 1935. Automotive engineers had begun to pay greater attention to aerodynamic considerations and the 1500 was an outstanding example of this newly acquired knowledge applied to passenger car design. Developed in a wind tunnel, the 1500's striking body featured a raked back radiator grille intended to reduce aerodynamic drag. Beneath the skin of this 1500 6C Barchetta there was a tubular backbone chassis boasting independent front suspension, the latter making its first appearance on a FIAT car. The 1500's engine is a 1,493cc overhead-valve six that shares its 65x75mm bore/stroke dimensions with the contemporary four-cylinder Tipo 508.
Under the bonnet is Fiats’ 1500cc overhead cam 6 cylinder motor equipped with triple Webber carburetors. The engine is free revving making delightful noises and when coupled with the feather light bodywork, gives it a serious turn of speed.
To the interior is sumptuous burgundy hide on all the seating surfaces complemented by matching carpets. The machine turned dash has a full set of the requisite instrumentation. Overall the 1500 6C Barchetta is in close to mint condition and presents beautifully. The driving experience is sublime, being a real driver’s car with excellent performance.
