Seat 600 illustration, surf edition. The SEAT 600 is a city car made in Spain by SEAT from May 1957 to August 1973 under licence by Fiat. It helped to start the economic boom, the Spanish miracle (1959–1973), that came at the end of the slow recovery from the Spanish Civil War. It was a relatively inexpensive vehicle (then 60,000 Spanish pesetas) and was the first car that came within the modest but rapidly growing economic means of most Spanish families from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s. The vehicle has become an icon of the period.
