The Topolino was one of the smallest cars in the world during its time. Topolino means “Little Mouse” in Italian, but it is also the Italian name for Disney’s beloved Mickey Mouse. The Topolino was produced by Fiat from 1936 to 1955. There were three models produced, designated A, B, and C. Model C was introduced in 1949 and some of them had a sunroof offering a pleasant view of the surrounding area when driving in Italy. This particular Model C was purchased new in 1951 by Antonio Gusmaroli, who used it for family outings. The Consignor purchased the car from Mr. Gusmaroli in 1995 to become the second owner. The car has the original title and Italian license plates from 1951. It was partially restored in Italy in 2005 and in 2014, it was imported to the United States. It is equipped with a sunroof and the paint and wood are in good condition. The engine is original and works fine.
