The Topolino was one of the smallest cars in the world at the time of its production. Launched in 1937, three models were produced until 1955, all with only minor mechanical and cosmetic changes. It was equipped with a 569 cc four-cylinder, side-valve, water-cooled engine mounted in front of the front axle, (later an overhead valve motor) and so was a full-scale car rather than a cyclecar. The radiator was located behind the engine which made possible a lowered aerodynamic nose profile at a time when competitors had a flat, nearly vertical grill. The shape of the car’s front allowed exceptional forward visibility. Three models were produced: model A, B and C. A and B shared the same body, only the engine of model B had 16 hp, vs. 13 hp of Model A. This car is a VERY rare Model B cabriolet which was only produced one year from 1948 to 1949. As rare as a Topolino B is, this one is also in original condition. The paint, interior and engine on this car are all original – it is in FANTASTIC shape! The car is currently in on its way to our San Francisco warehouse from Italy and is being sold with a current and valid California registration and title.
