Maly – The towncar
The iconic vehicles of Eastern Europe on your desk!
While in the West it was the Italian Fiat Nuova 500 manufactured from 1957 that stole the hearts of car fanatics, the Polish-made Polski Fiat entering production in 1973 based on the Fiat license was the go-to vehicle of petrolheads in the Eastern Bloc. Due to its small size, the Poles called the four-wheeled vehicle ‘Maluch’ (meaning toddler), which became popular in socialist Hungary under the name Kispolszki. Its compact size made the Polski Fiat a lovable family car, perhaps only the similarly equipped and priced Trabant can be regarded as its one true competitor.
