Like Berlin, Prague was also a hotbed of endangered cars to take photographs. This is a very cool sporty number that was produced between the years 1964-1973, the Fiat 850. This car appears to be a 1968 model, and is in incredible looking condition. I am positive it has a very proud owner, more about that later. For now, lets take a look at a photo.
The front end of the Fiat 850 looks great with the round headlights and chrome trim.
What a beautiful pale blue eyes kind of a colour. It was glowing nicely in the morning, you couldn’t miss it.
Great looking chrome hub caps too, very much like we have seen on a few Mercedes-Benz.
The thing I love about these older cars is that all the materials look solid, even the plastic. As we see in the Saab 96 V4 the signal lights in the rear are made of some really thick looking plastic, and are also gorgeously dyed in deep orange colour.
Here is another look at the rear of this Fiat 850.
A look in the cockpit.
They probably called it red, but to me the steering wheel and interior border on a shade of burgundy. Interesting contrast with the cool mint blue.
Now in this photo, you can see why I believe we have a very proud owner from Praha (noting the triangular flag). This is interesting. Not only have they a club in place on the steering wheel, but for extra security you can see that they have a chain and padlock in place to keep the gear shift in a fixed position. Or, at least it is there to complicate shifting gears and making a clean getaway.
All in all a fun, cool looking car.
