Classic Car Auctions says:

*** Regretfully Withdrawn *** When it was launched,the new Fiat 500 had a rear-mounted engine, on the pattern of the Volkswagen Beetle, just like its bigger brother the 1955 Fiat 600. Several car makers followed this now uncommon rear engine configuration at the time and were quite successful.
Despite its diminutive size, the 500 proved to be an enormously practical and popular vehicle throughout Europe. Replacing the original Nuova in 1960, the 'D' looks very similar to its predecessor, but there were two key differences. One is the engine size (the D features an uprated 499 cc engine producing 17 bhp as standard-this engine was used right through until the end of the L in 1973) and the other is the roof. The standard 'D' roof does not fold back as far as the roof on the Nuova, though it was also available as the "Transformable" with the earlier long soft roof. The 'D' also features "suicide doors".
This cheeky little 1963 model has just come over from Italy recently and is waiting for its first UK owner. It comes with all its import papers and will require and MOT. The car has travelled 54,000 miles from new which is believed genuine but not warranted and has been with its last owner for the last 14 years. When was the last time you saw one like this with those ever so quirky suicide doors and that amazing roof?
