The body-side chrome spear split in two to encompass a contrasting colour band (matching the roof paint) extended from the front doors to the end of the rear quarter panels, where there was a brass-plated ornament. New interior features were a padded vinyl shelf added below the dashboard, and wind deflectors fixed to the front side windows. Thanks to a twin-choke carburator and a higher 7.85:1 compression ratio the Lusso's 1.1-litre engine developed 50 PS CUNA (37 kW) (55 PS SAE), rather than the 43 PS CUNA of the model 1958 1100. Top speed was 130 km/h (81 mph). Another change from the regular saloons was the two-piece propshaft, inherited from the TV saloons.
This Fiat 1100 Lusso 1959
You rarely see such a beautiful Fiat 1100 Lusso driving on our roads! This car lived itss life in a small town south of Naples. The Fiat was completely restored and has regained its beautiful former glory together with its two-color bodywork. The interior has also been overhauled and is simply beautiful!
The 50 HP strong engine runs like a clock and is very nervous.
In short, a fun and rare car to tour around on beautiful secondary roads with with a picnic basket in the trunk.
This Fiat 1100/103 H Lusso can be viewed by appointment at Art & Classics.
