Description

The car proposed here is an important FIAT 510 TORPEDO produced in 1923, and until 1929 used on several occasions by Vittorio Emanuele III of Savoy, King of Italy from 1900 to 1946.
Photographs of the time (provided by the Fiat Historical Register) testify to the King of Italy aboard this Fiat 510 Torpedo during his visit to the new FIAT Automobili workshops at the Lingotto (Turin), on 22 May 1923. On board the car in addition to his majesty Vittorio Emanuele III, there were General Diaz (Minister of War), and Commendatore Agnelli, President of FIAT.

Later in 1929 the car was sold and equipped with an "MI" (Milan) license plate. Between the years 30/40 it was resold, the plaque "PV" (Pavia) bearing the symbol of fascism changed. The plate still exists and is supplied with the car. Today the FIAT 510 is equipped with a white Italian plate, has all the documents in order and is ready for the transfer of ownership.

It was restored in the first half of 1990, by the father of the current owner, and the deep and total restoration required a good 6 years of work, especially for the research carried out in order to restore the car as it was originally. The rear trunk was added in succession to the 1923 purchase.

The total restoration of the bodywork and all the mechanical parts is documented by numerous photographs. There is also a spare engine, four wheels and various spare parts, not included in the sale price. The car is ASI Gold Plate (certificate of maximum quality of the restoration), and is registered in the FIAT Historical Register.
