The Fiat Jolly was built summer fun, or if you had real money, to putt around the deck of your yacht. It was simple, provided plenty of sun, and wasn’t going to get you anywhere fast. Malcolm Bricklin, a US based Subaru dealer, took a liking to the concept and decided to have a few of his own runabouts built. His were based on the tiny Subaru 360 and featured a stylish cutaway body. These little guys are very rare and ones in this condition are unheard of. Find it here on eBay in Sarasota, Florida with the reserve not met.
Sand spewing power is provided by this 356 cc two-stroke two-cylinder engine. The seller claims that this things can achieve speeds of 70 mph. We think they may be a little optimistic there, but we doubt we would ever find out because anything over 40 has to be terrifying. The mileage is pegged at 9,100 miles and the engine is claimed to run well.
There isn’t much to hold on to when cornering, so we are sure the seatbelts will be appreciated. With the open air feel and the four speed transmission this thing has to be blast to drive. Cruise around the beach or visit the local country club and you are bound to get plenty of looks.
This micro car has undergone a recent restoration and looks great. The only bad thing about that is that the seller knows exactly what they have and they are not going to let it go cheap. We know of a few of these cars that have sold for pennies because most people do not even know what they are. The seller is a dealer and their site lists an asking price of $19k so don’t expect the reserve to be much lower than that. Still, that is a lot less money than a comparable Jolly would cost you. So if you have always wanted a Jolly, but couldn’t justify the high prices, this may be one you.
