Spaghetti con Chorizo Saturday: SEAT 600 Commercial

Illustration for article titled Spaghetti con Chorizo Saturday: SEAT 600 Commercial

I’ve already shown here one way of turning the humble SEAT 600 into a commercial vehicle - the Siata Formichetta.

But this one was done by SEAT itself - the cheap way. Unlike Siata, SEAT didn’t add anything to make the commercial version - instead, they deleted things. The side rear windows, and the rear seats. Bingo - your el-cheapo transport vehilce is ready.

But, being a two-door rear engined car, there was no hatch at the back, no rear doors - the only way the driver could reach the load area in the back was by reaching behind the front seats. Not ideal. As per all Spanish commercial vehicles, this one was limited to 80km per hour and had to announce it via a large sticker on the back. But - as it could barely reach 100 anyway, it wouldn’t have bothered anyone much.

“Servicio de Assistencia en Carretera” simply means Roadside Assistance - and I believe this livery is based on a real vehicle SEAT employed to help stranded motorists. But these were very simple cars, where not much could go wrong. Apart from the rampant rust.

This model is by Solido - and as you can see, the quality isn’t brilliant. But they are cheap and cheerful, even if the this and that bit of chrome is a bit wonky and the tampos look a bit haphazard. But that was the case with the real cars, too. So we shouldn’t judge it too harshly.
