Tito’s Fiat 500 Jolly valued at up to $129,000

Coys is selling a 1964 Fiat 500 Jolly that originally belonged to Josip Broz Tito, president of Yugoslavia between 1953 and 1980.

Fiat Jolly Tito

The Fiat 500 Jolly was popular with the super rich 

The car is a modified Fiat 500 produced by Italian coach maker Ghia and was designed chiefly as a runabout for the very well off.

Unlike many dictators, Tito was actually quite popular in his own country.

He is credited with shielding his people from the worst excess of Stalinism (although that’s not to say he didn’t run Yugoslavia as a repressive police state).

This car has been housed in the Automobile Museum in Belgrade since Tito’s death. It remains in excellent condition, with very low mileage.

It’s valued at £70,000-100,000 ($90,517-129,310).

Coys will also sell the original Ferrari 275 GTB/4 prototype
