1963 Fiat 500 Jolly.

When Fiat’s chairman Gianni Agnelli needed a “land dinghy” to carry aboard his 82-foot yacht, the Agneta, he asked his design team at Fiat to create a small, light vehicle that could easily be lowered off the boat for local transportation. They came up with the 'Jolly.'

The first Jollys' were built on the two-cylinder Fiat 500 platform and then sent to Ghia,

the famous Italian Coachbuilder to be modified.

This involved removing the roof and doors and adding wicker seats

and a fringed canvas top and strengthening the chassis frame.

A version based on the larger 600 soon followed.

It is believed that no more than 400 Jollys were built in total, between 1958 and 1969.

Fiat 500 Jolly. Classic Car Rare 1963

They were briefly sold in the United States and are very rare in Europe.

Our beautiful little Fiat Jolly recreation is a Fiat 500 that has been fully restored to Jolly specifications having used an original Ghia 500 Jolly as a reference. The entire body of the Fiat 500 saloon was completely stripped to bare metal, restored, re-worked and repainted by craftsmen in Italy. Finished to an extremely high standard and painted beautifully in Peppermint Green with bright Chrome details and wicker seating. Complemented by Chrome wheel trims with White-wall tyres, this iconic little classic always attracts admiring envious onlookers. The drivability of the car is equally as pleasurable, gear changes are smooth, allowing for easy City driving.

Hand crafted wicker seats, rattan floor mats, a quality fringed surrey top, and the gorgeous windshields are fitted to finish the Jolly look, all are in concours condition. This is the perfect vehicle for the Summer months.

Here is the chance to own one of the finest small cars ever built.

This stunning Fiat 500 Jolly 1963 is simply stunning.


Everyone has their own definition, their own set of criteria, their own ideas about what makes a car ‘classic’.

Some people have a very fluid rationale, using the word ‘classic’ to refer to a wider range of interesting cars that aren’t being built anymore.

Others are more comfortable with a specific meaning of the word, like the reader who wrote in yesterday saying that to qualify as classic the car must be “a post-WWII, pre-1980 model of technical or nostalgic merit”.

Neither approach is wrong.

But how old or new can a classic car be?

Who decides whether a car is noteworthy, or when it approaches ‘a certain age’?

Do we leave this down to consensus?

I’ve briefly explored some of the options.

Again, it depends who you ask. ‘Classic’ is a specific taxation class in several US states, while North American historic car clubs have their own set criteria and age restrictions.

In the UK, though, there are fewer hard-and-fast rules.

The closest thing we have to a cut-off date is currently the 1st of January 1977 – cars built before this particular day don’t incur vehicle excise duty. This is a rolling date (it’ll soon be 1978) but it offers Brits something approaching a government definition of ‘classic’.

What can be a ‘classic’ car?

Whether any of these qualify as classics is still the source of disagreement.

A Subaru fan might consider the P1 to be a seminal road car,

while a dyed-in-the-wool Porsche aficionado

would probably have to look closely at which particular 911 was being offered. before deciding whether it was a classic or not.

But it’s fair to say that these cars are currently closer to being ‘classics’

than Corsas of the same vintage.

Vintage Cars?

Take having “technical or nostalgic merit”

as a starting point for classic car candidacy.

It’s actually more difficult to think of a car that doesn’t fall into this category than to find cars that do

Nearly every car has a technological USP, and those that don’t still have fan clubs.

And by definition, more cars are becoming old enough to be noteworthy. Everyday vehicles from yesteryear.

become scarce, or are belatedly recognised for the technological achievements They represent.

Gradually, and fitfully, the ranks of the ‘classic’ fleet swell.

Remember that eventually, they’ll almost certainly become right.

If you’re deciding whether or not to invest in a classic car,

Fiat 500 Jolly then bear in mind that parts might not come cheap.

Let’s be honest, classic is just another word for old .

and old in the context of cars can mean it’s hard to fix and find parts for.

Before you buy, it’s worth checking the replacement parts rules of your insurance provider

to make sure you’ll be entitled to authentic replacement parts.

So, while you may have a hankering for something cool and vintage,

the demands on your wallet might not be so welcome.

Bank notes and coins
Bank Notes A Banknote is a legal negotiable note which one party can use to pay another party on demand without any interest and is considered as money. They are used for financial transactions happening all over the world. Although the physical goods were replaced by paper money over time and governments started issuing these as an exchange for objects. But the age determines the rarity of banknotes which has become the defining factor of its valuation. As a result, rare banknotes are very precious and sold at a very high price than their own on various market places for collection. Coins Coins are disc-shaped metal-made objects used as a form of money or as an alternative to banknotes for small purposes. Earlier the value was considered from the intrinsic value of the metal from which coins were made of. But at present, the value is decided by the state and use as flat money. As time passes, old coins have become very valuable for collection and as a result, they are s
