SEAT 600

When SEAT was granted the license rights to build the 600 model and later the 850 of Italian origin, FIAT set the condition that production would only be for the Spanish market, so you can rightly call the car a Spanish car.

By: Dirk de Jong

From 1958 to 1975, the SEAT 600 was built in Spain, just like its Italian 'sister' with 600 cc engine capacity. The content was later increased to 750 cc and the SEAT subsequently got a D after the figure 600. The photo shows the closing doors here, it is said that the SEAT 600 D has made Spain mobile.

A few things changed in 1969. The car now had normally closing doors and a modified interior, after which it was named SEAT 600 E.
In Italy, production had stopped and the production line was sold to Zastava, with the result that the Spanish variant of the 600 could now also be offered abroad. In our country a FIAT sticker came on, but then went through life as 'Spanish Fiatjes'. A nice fact is that the then government of Spain only allowed sheet metal from the northern Spanish steel industry to be used, and that it mostly concerned recycled demolition material ...

You can guess the result: rust quickly nibbled, certainly in our country it was hardly possible to escape. Our cold little country had to make it to the pleasant temperatures of Spain anyway. So often a premature end of the SEAT 600. But certainly not for this beautiful version with the registration number V-206783. Because it is owned by Ramon Bourguignon who wanted to share with us the history of his property.
