I am Frank Derksen, founder of FD Ricambi, the spare parts specialist for every Fiat classic car.
When I bought my first Fiat 500 in 1983 and started to renovate it, I discovered that it was difficult to find the right parts at the right price. I delved into the matter, got more and more contacts and soon knew where to buy the right Fiat 500 parts. This did not go unnoticed by other Fiat fans. With my acquired knowledge I also helped other Fiat enthusiasts to find the right materials, and after a few years, my hobby got out of hand.
In 2005 I took the plunge and decided to build a web shop: Fiat500ricambi.nl was a fact. My idea was to set up a good, reliable web shop, where people could not only go for Fiat 500 parts, but also for technical advice.
That this concept works is shown by the fact that in 2009 already, we moved to a location with 300 % more office and warehouse space. In the meantime, I already employed some staff members, and 3 years later we had grown out of our league, and we moved to a building with another 300% expansion of the spaces.
In that year, 2012, we also went for a huge expansion of our range by adding parts for the other Fiat vintage cars, such as the Fiat 126, Fiat 600 and Fiat 850. Also, we became a dealer of Borrani spoke rims, Guarnitauto engine gasket sets and CSC sports exhausts.
Due to the very complete range, the large stock and the short delivery times, we are found by customers all over the world. We not only ship dozens of parcels within Europe every day but also to South Africa, the United States, Japan and New Zealand, for example.
In recent years, the focus has been on further professionalization and optimization. The webshop has had several face-lifts and upgrades and we are constantly working on automating and speeding up the order process.
However, we have never forgotten where it all started: passion and knowledge.
So if you have any questions or are looking for a part, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help you restore and maintain your Fiat vintage car!
