Without 500,only Bianchina Cabriolet Special(note black stripe with chrome rib on sides,that recalls it had a tuned Fiat 500 D engine--499,5cc.--and a more luxury trim),1960-1969


PS but how could be 1965 M.Y.,as says pilou,if movie was played in 1963?

As a former employee of a car company I think I have the answer regarding date. Some car manufacturers have featured prototypes and specially constructed vehicles for movies. This would have been a very expensive proposition and it not often used today because of budget constraints. So, a vehicle that was due for release in 1965 could have easily been included in a movie. Also, as is often the case in the U.S., cars for release are often designed and prototypes made two or three years before the vehicle goes into production. In America, many features on these vehicles are disguised in order to camouflage them from photographers that may try to steal the designs prematurely. I am not exactly sure how things were done in the 60's at car manufacturers but there was probably not much fear of designs being stolen from one manufacturer for another particularly in Europe before release of an auto. In fact, the industry is so small in Europe that many engineers that I have met, from England in particular, worked for all the car manuacturers from Lotus to Rolls Royce at one time or another. It was not a problem in Europe because each manufacturer had only a few designs exclusive to that particular maker. These are just educated assumptions and I am not offering this info as fact.
