Vintage PR Shot: Polski-Fiat 125p Six Door Convertible – Not What It Appears To Be At First Glance

When I first saw this, I assumed it was a parade car, a Polish take on a Lincoln stretch convertible for communist party big-wigs. It would have been more “communist” for four of them to ride in than just one or two. But no, that’s not what it was used for.

There were a few of these built, nicknamed “dachshunds”, used to ferry tourists around Warsaw. Presumably that must have been only on warm, sunny days, as there’s no top. But then who wanted to see Warsaw in the winter anyway?

This dates to somewhere in the mid 1970s.
