Tom Hanks’ Tiny Car A Fiat 126 Is Up For Auction

Hanks is auctioning off his beloved Fiat 126 to raise money for the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and its Hidden Heroes Campaign. Hanks is a chair of the nonprofit that provides resources and support to military families caring for loved ones who were wounded in service.  Right now the bid sits at $57,000, which has likely already surpassed the highest price ever paid for a Fiat 126.

The Fiat was gifted to Hanks by a group of Polish individuals back in 2016.  The story begins with Hanks documenting a trip to Budapest on Twitter. Throughout several of his stops, Hanks posted to Twitter photos of himself grinning next to street-parked Fiat 126s. Hanks’ posts caught the attention of a woman by the name of Monika Jaskolska.  The Fiat 126 was built in her home town of Bielsko-Biala during communist rule, and so the car was a point of pride in the community and in its history.  Jaskolska decided to get a group of people to fund the purchase of a Fiat 126 to gift to Hanks.
