Built by Alfredo Vignale, not registered till the late 1960’s, but based on the design concept embodied in the la fiat 500 series.  Designed to appear like it’s pre-war counterpart Balilla, but has come to be characterised fondly as ‘Barbie’s car’ or ‘Noddy’s car’ due to it’s toy like stature and appearance.
