The Fiat 1500 convertible saw the light of day in the year 1963. The 1500 succeeded the Fiat 1200 convertible which was on the market since the year 1959. The bodywork of the fiat 1500 was the same as the 1200, only the front and the bonnet (deleted air intake) were altered. The lines of the fiat 1200/ 1500 convertible were drawn by Pininfarina. The roadholding capabilities of the 1500 were largely the same as the 1200. The bigger engine however gave the 1500 much more power and a higher top-speed. The 1500 engine delivered 25 extra horsepower and the top speed was increased by 20 kilometers per hour.
As the 1200 convertible the 1500 convertible was very suitable for comfortable touring.
The Fiat 1200 and 1500 convertibles feature a unitary bodywork structure and a four speed manual gearbox with floor shift. The 1500 was fitted with disk brakes at the front wheels.
These charming convertibles are hard to find nowadays.
