Fiat 500 giardiniera, 1960-1975. Something for the weekend. In 1966 production transferred to Fiat subsidiary Autobianchi, later examples were badged as Autobianchis instead of Fiats. The Giardiniera featured rear hinged “suicide doors” and continued to use them into the 1970s after other 500s had switched to front hinged doors
As you might know I simply can’t walk by without taking a photo if I see a Fiat 500, in this case in the adorable Lusso-Version (1968–1972) with modernized interior, front-hinged doors and an extra chrome nudge bar. It seems to have become an architect’s dream: clean, black, perfectly restored, so Hamburg. It has cost me my lunchbreak today to shoot it without rain and passers-by.
