Incredible Classic 1979 Fiat 124 Spider (Spider 2000) – runs perfectly.
An amazing 1979 Fiat 124 Spider which has been extensively restored. This father-son project has to come to an end, because my son is off to college and I need the space to restore the next car for the brother who wants a jeep.
While it has some minor cosmetic issues, the car has run great, and most of our projects have been to finish-out the looks and handling. Dad and son didn’t do it all ourselves though – foreign car specialists did all of the engine work. But here is what you get:
Fully rebuilt suspension (ball joints, center link, tie rods, shocks, springs)
New Carpet (with sound/heat padding)
POR of the floorboards to inhibit rust
TONS of cosmetic details (badges, lug-nuts, chrome pins, vents, vent knobs, leather boot, trunk springs….)
Few extra bits & bobs – install at your leisure. Some spare parts thrown-in.
Recent Smog Certificate and registration.
Two full manuals, including original owners manual.
Lots of receipts
But, you say – what is left for me to work on??? It is a Fiat, so if you have to ask that question, this may not be the right car! What would we do next if young-un wasn’t off to college? We’d love to enhance the electrical by terminating some new grounds. You can add the Bumperettes if you like that look. A leather upgrade would be nice to finish it all off, though everything is still in really good shape. The clock runs slow. Maybe some LED lights. You could strip off the CA smog gear and pick up a bunch of HP. How about a new dual-carb? Lots of fun stuff left to be done.
There are a few cracks in the paint, and a minor bubbling under the paint on front driver wheel-well (about the size of a quarter). PCV has a small leak. And the muffler has a small hole (frankly, it sounds BETTER this way, but each to his own).
This baby is ready to roll!
Ok, so you want to see it. I get it, everyone likes to come by, talk, etc. But save it for your own drive-way. No tire-kickers, just people who get it, want to cherish it, and have the cash to pay for it.
Come get it while the weather is good!
