Description
 
Launched in 1966 Turin Motor Show, the Fiat 124 Spider was such a huge success that it remained in production right up until 1985. The classically Italianate bodywork was styled and manufactured by Pininfarina, while the running gear and platform was based on the Fiat 124 Coupe but with a shorter wheelbase. Power initially came from Fiat’s lovely free-revving 1.5-litre twin cam with an aluminium cylinder head designed by ex-Ferrari chief engineer, Aurelio Lampredi, although by 1979 this had grown to 2-litres in capacity. Suspension was by coil springs all round (independent double-wishbone front / Panhard rod-located 'live' axle rear) with four-wheel disc brakes and worm-and-roller steering. With a very roomy cabin and features like an optional five-speed gearbox, intermittent wipers and a hood that could be raised in under twenty seconds, the Spider took many sales from the likes of MG and Triumph in America, where some 75% of all Spiders were sold – it was never officially available in the UK or in right-hand drive. This particular car has the 118bhp 1.8-litre engine that is good for 115mph and comes with a letter from Fiat stating that it was manufactured in January 1975. Supplied new to California, it was imported to the UK in 1996 and has had just four owners since, the last owner acquiring it in 2004. Capable of running on unleaded fuel, it has been well-maintained in the current ownership with a plethora of bills and invoices on file. Amongst many other items it has been fitted with a stainless steel exhaust which sounds superb combined with the twin-choke carburetors. With a recent new battery, service and MOT, this is car that is bound to turn heads and will without doubt be a joy to the new owner.
