Fiat 500L offered by Mecum

The car announced here: https://www.mecum.com/lots/CA0819-380937/1972-fiat-500l/ as powered by a 1100 cc engine. The images show a 2 cylinder air-cooled engine. I have been involved with Fiat and Abarth for several decades and I own a genuine 595 SS with similar engine as shown. To my knowledge, it is impossible for this engine to be 1100 cc capacity. Fiat 1100 cc engines are 4 cylinder, water-cooled, totally different than this one. This is most probably 695 cc. Unless I can be corrected, I have respectfully asked Mecum to correct the listing before bidding starts. Bidder beware.
