UPDATE: The reserve wasn’t met on January 18, 2011 at $14,300.

G.I. Joe never had it so good.  I can picture me now, spinning 360s then punching it up some insane hill while I toss water balloons at my friend in his woefully inadequate Max AIV.  

“This all terrain car is complete with all original parts but needs complete restoration. It is one of over 100 derivative of the Fiat 500. The engine is a 2 cylinder air-cooled system 499.5cc. which is the same as for the Fiat 500 sedan version. The car has a chain transmission over the rear 4 wheels. It has a special suspension design of 7 shocks to prevent any rolling backward. It has a double circuit brake over the 6 wheels…”
Find it here on eBay.
“…It can accomodate 4 people inside quite comfortably. It has been used in this vehicle some parts from the Fiat 600, Fiat 500 Giardiniera, and Fiat 1100. The dimensions of the car are length of 3 meter X width 1.30 meter X height 1.70 meter. The windshield  does not recline and the car can be driven completely open like a jeep by taking off the canvas covering.
This car has been made in a very limited number, a total of only 24 and as far as I know only 3 now are in existence. There is one in a car museum in US. This car has been in my collection for over 15 years. I used to drive it to car shows and for fun, then I put away in storage. When I was renovating my garage, I left the car outside for a certain period and unfortunately a raccoon used it as its shelter and,  as you can see in the picture, damaged the upholstery.
This is a 6 wheel vehicle ( 6 X 4) and has 4 gears plus the reverse and has slow gears for high climbing and rough terrain. It has a speed of minimum of 3 km/h and maximum speed of 80 km/h. It can climb up to 100 degree incline. I’m not sure about this  because I never tried it myself but I came by this information from an original magazine that was released when the vehicle first came out for sale. The car is designed to be able to turn 360 degrees in a limited space. This car has a sophisticated mechanical resolution (for that period) patented by the designer Ferrario. 
The car is located in Toronto Canada. It has Ontario ownership (title). I will help the buyer to find the most economical shipping method. You are welcome to come and see the car personally.  For shipping cost, please do your own research. I would like to keep the reserve price private to make it fair form everyone. Once the car is paid fully, I can keep it in storage for the buyer. Bidders with less than 10 feedback, please contact me first before bidding. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.”
