Whether that makes sense or not is a different matter.But the fact is that present rules dont allow change of Fuel Type,the only exception you can fit an additional LPG or CNG kit in case of certain Vehicles

Great to see this car and thank you for a nice image . Whats the history of the car and does it run on its original engine. Not transplanted to a diesel engine I hope. Some images of the interior.

Cheers

Hi Foby, Can u please post some engine room pics, looking at the exhaust placement LHS, it seems its running on some other engine, not the original. Basically the Exhaust plumbing for the Original Motor is placed on the RHS.

The topolino has wrong tail lamps,I would presume. Actually,the tail lamps on the topolino are from an 1954-56 Millicento.
