Maluch: 1989 Polski Fiat 126p 18K Mile Time Capsule – $5,999

Jun 2020 | Classifinds, Free For All Friday

Riddle me this:  what Italian car actually had more models produced outside of Italy?  The answer is the Polski Fiat 126P and we came across this 18,000 mile example recently imported from Poland and featured here on Craigslist in Garwood, New Jersey with an asking price of $5,999.  We don’t have a good baseline to know what this 126P might be worth, however if you are serious about buying it, you can start the conversation by either calling or texting Eryk at (908) 400-4019 and when you do please remember to mention you saw his car featured here on

Fiat introduced the tiny rear-engined 126 city car in 1972 as a replacement for the 500. While production of the car for the European Union ended in 1993 with the launch of Fiat’s new front-wheel-drive Cinqueccento, Polski Fiats continued to be built and sold in Poland through 2000 with a total of 3.3MM produced.  In Poland the car became a cultural icon and earned the nickname Maluch, meaning “The Little One” or “Toddler”.

This low mileage car appears to be in like-new condition and we love the Polish flag paint scheme.  As an American of half Polish descent, I would personally love to drive this car in Buffalo’s Dyngus Day parade.  For the other 364 days out of the year, Potrzebny jak dziura w moście!   Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:
