THE MOTOR CAR OFFERED

As redolent of La Dolce Vita Italy as the immortal Vespa scooter, the 'beach car' is most famously embodied by Ghia's 'Jolly'. A novel and quintessentially Italian concept, the Jolly transformed humble saloons such as FIAT's 500 and 600 from basic transport into conspicuous indicators of wealth. The Jolly found favour as courtesy transport for patrons of luxury hotels and golf courses or for use ashore after one had docked one's yacht on the Italian or French Riviera. Lacking doors and equipped with wickerwork seats, it was only practical as leisure transport, thus confirming its owner's status as someone who could afford a car 'just for fun'.

Copy is often said to be the sincerest form of flattery and it stands to reason that with some iconic automobiles which were built in modest numbers, often with more numerate models as their basis that recreating those original formats would be a popular and successful idea.

This 'Jolly' is exactly that, using a stock 500 from the 1960s as its basis the car has been totally restored and converted to Jolly specifications, with their famed cut down open doorless sides, wicker seating and surrey top. The conversion was carried out by an Italian company specializing in this work. To add to the period guise, an extra wicker panier has been placed on the rear deck providing some (modest) storage for all the things you might need at the beach – wine, an ice bucket, sunscreen, you get the picture...

Finished in 'Baby Blue' paint, with rich dark brown varnished wicker and color coded top, this exquisite little jewel is ready for cruising this summer, be it here in Greenwich, the Hamptons, or wherever.
