The unnamed careful lady owner, now in her 90s and living in east Devon, is selling the car at an auction in Exeter, Devon, next week and the guide price is more than £5,000.
The lady drove a variety of vehicles while in the British Army in Germany in the 1940s, while in the British Consulate and seconded to the US Army.
The car's final outing was in 2006 - when the owner was fined for speeding - and since then it has been in her garage.
Auctioneer Carol Campbell of Queens Road Auctions said: "It's a complete one off. She wanted a Fiat car and she took them her design and said 'I want that'. That's why the car is designed for a small lady and it's also why it is a left hand drive.
"We've got it running but it will need an MOT."
