1959 Fiat 600 owned by Eric Seltzer of Sherman Oaks, California. The Fiat was Eric's second car, and it ran a 750cc Abarth engine, special differential gears, custom dark blue metallic paint with pinstriping by Von Dutch, and a complete custom interior with tuck & roll upholstery, new side panels, and carpeting. Eric bought the Fiat in October of 1960, and it had already been pinstriped by Von Dutch by then. After buying it, Eric had all the upholstery work done in Tijuana, Mexico. "We lived just a block from Tony Nancy's upholstery shop in Sherman Oaks and Von Dutch worked out of there at times," he told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2021. At the time, Eric was 78 years old, and he had owned 110 vehicles at last count.[1]
