According to a credible tradition, at the end of the 1950s, none other than Giovanni Agnelli, son of a wealthy Italian industrial aristocracy and at that time already vice president at FIAT, came up with the idea of carrying a small beach car on his yacht, which made it easier for him to get from his mooring to a hotel or a bar. The Carrozzeria Ghia received the order to build it on the basis of the FIAT 500. Soon this car, christened "Jolly", became a popular must-have among the rich and beautiful along the world's fashionable coasts. The light and airy car was very popular in jet-set circles and was then produced by Ghia in a small series - which makes real "Jollys" an expensive rarity today. This vehicle is from first Italian ownership. After the death of the owner, the FIAT stood unused but garaged for a few years and is now in its unrestored original condition. The bodywork is in the best possible condition: all panels of the clearly arranged body are still original and solid and furthermore they have been painted with the first layer of paint! The canopy presents itself with the original fabric, but the covering of the seats has been renewed. The 31,124 km read on the speedometer correspond to the original mileage that the Jolly covered with the first engine. The small vehicle is therefore "matching numbers", which collectors particularly appreciate. The car needs some attention as a garage find: a technical inspection, replacement of the fuel and new tires are recommendable (or necessary), but with this model generally associated with only low costs. A conservation of the original condition is advisable, also because only a few jollys might still be unrestored and this authenticity is irretrievable!

Numerous replicas of the sympathetic beach car are available on the market - only rarely are original Ghia vehicles on offer. According to the FIAT archives, this one was delivered to Ghia for rebuilding - like all jollys - after having been manufactured by FIAT in the "Mirafiori" factory in Turinr.
