SEAT will be prominently represented at 30th edition of #technoclassica in #essen, which will take place from March 21st to 25th. The Spanish car maker will not only be showing rare models from its brand history at this year's jubilee edition of the world's largest show for classic cars; it will also be dedicating its stand in Hall 7 to the restoration of cars.
As an example, the brand will provide authentic insights into the highly devoted work of the #seat Coches Históricos restoration team, who have set themselves the goal of returning their own historical #automotive icons to pristine condition in time-consuming manual work in Barcelona, the brand’s home city. Taking a #seat #600 in two very different states of aggregation, the factory restoration team will demonstrate what they can accomplish.
The ultimate proof of the craftsmanship and passion for detail shown daily by the #seat restoration team, in the Zona Franca industrial zone in the Spanish metropolis, is an early and fully restored specimen of the #seat #600, which is certain to be one of the #automotive stars on the #seat stand in #essen. Two other historical models will flank it, both based on this popular vehicle type, but in a very different condition.
This specimen in green of an early #seat #600 from 1957 demonstrates the great passion and dedication the car manufacturer from Martorell has for its long history and #automotive tradition. This model was restored in 2017 by the #seat Coches Históricos team in the Zona Franca industrial zone in Barcelona on the 60th anniversary of this small iconic car.
The elaborate all-round restoration of this model, which was popularly and affectionately known as the 'little ball' or ‘little SEAT’, and which made a decisive contribution to Spain's sweeping departure into the #automotive era that started in the late 1950s, took a whole year to complete. No expense or effort has been spared in restoring the car to its original condition so that it can be exhibited at the show in #essen.
It is probably the best-preserved specimen of a #seat #600 the Spanish car manufacturer has in its own vintage collection, together with a specimen from the second to last production series, a #600 L from 1973, still in mint condition.
