Fiat has built millions of vehicles since 1899 but the company is perhaps best known for its ability to produce small, economical, characterful cars. Great Small Fiats traces this concept from the birth of the 500A "Topolino" in the 1930s up to the current Panda and a hint of the proposed Nuova 500. Each of the selected models are described in detail from their conception through to current ownership in the hands of collectors and enthusiasts. The chapters include practical information on buying and running a small Fiat and restoration advice for the older cars. Also included are Fiats built under license outside of Italy and the Fiat-derived "etceterini" coachbuilt and competition cars.
