The Fiat 500 launched in 1957, two years after the 600, but for 7 years it sold less than its bigger sister, only taking the lead of Italian car sales in 1964. It would then stay on top for 8 years.
In 1965 the Fiat 500 is followed by the Fiat 850, Fiat 1300/1500, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Lancia Fulvia and Fiat 600. The Ford Taunus is the best-selling foreign model. If you have more detailed info about car sales in Italy during this period please make sure to get in touch…
