In the history of the automobile, Fiat 1100 is probably one of the few cars that is so closely identified with a cubic capacity. For more than 30 years, if one considers its pre-war production, the “1100” was a symbol of the medium-size Italian family runabout, able to transport four people in complete comfort at extremely low cost. The robustness and reliability of its engine was proverbial, an absolute strong point of the 1100 which was able to withstand numerous motor sport-type conversions.
The book covers the history of this unforgettable car from 1953, the year of the debut of the Nuova 1100/103, to the end of the 60s when the 1100 R – as always, available as a saloon or estate car – closed the technical and industrial life of this glorious model. The car’s story is told by the expert Alessandro Sannia and is illustrated with 250 black and white and colour photographs. Technical specifications and the traditional brief guide to restoration complete this latest title in the series.
