For a period of 5 years starting in 1978 the US government issued a massive recall of the Fiat 850 for rust issues. Presumably those examples that weren’t pulled from the road in the recall likely fell victim to the rust-proofing, because today these are few to be found. The rear-mounted 843cc engine produced a whopping 49 horsepower, pushing the car to speeds of nearly 90mph.
