1990 FSM Niki 650

 

 

This 1990 FSM Niki 650 is a niche piece of automotive history, which presents in clean order and shows minimal mileage on its odometer. At the rear sits a naturally-aspirated 650cc two-cylinder engine which outputs 19kW (26hp) to the rear wheels. This example comes with a four-speed manual transmission. It currently displays 52,047km on its odometer.

 

 

The Polski Fiat 126P was built under licence in Poland from 1973 until 2000 and was eminently popular due to its low price. There are very few differences between this Polish-built version and the Fiat 126; namely a restyled rear grille, changed indicator lenses, and a taller chassis. The car achieved considerable success in Eastern Bloc countries towards the end of the Cold War, but interestingly the car also played a minor role in the Australian market. It was sold locally between 1989 and 1992 under the name FSM Niki. There was even a convertible version developed specifically for the Australian market. The FSM Niki was Australia’s most affordable car, and its simplistic mechanicals were easy to service at home.

 

 

This example specifies red paint for the exterior and is upholstered with grey fabric and black vinyl inside. As one of the late-run Nikis this car features upgraded brakes, and a minor facelift. There have been two subtle modifications made to this car: a new gear knob and an aftermarket Pioneer head unit. The car sits on a set of 12-inch steel wheels wrapped in Haida tyres.

 

 

Built new in Bielsko Biala, Poland, this vehicle was delivered new to Australia. The current owner purchased the car nine years ago and set to work bringing the car back to a presentable standard. This included removing all rust, replacing the brakes, interior trim, exterior bumpers, and new lights. In the time since, the vehicle has been serviced privately according to the owner.

 

 

The exterior shows in good order throughout, with clean, reflective paintwork and untarnished black details. There is no sign of denting or scratching to the bodywork.
There is no kerb rash or damage to the four wheels and the tyres show a good amount of tread remaining.

 

 

Inside the cabin this Niki shows in very clean condition for a vehicle of its age. The fabric seats with vinyl outers present without tears or stains, while the carpeting also displays without obvious wear. Door cards and dashboard both show in good order. No obvious wear and tear is seen on the car’s instruments or plastic trim.

 

 

This car will be sold with a spare set of spark plugs, contact points, and a spare key.
