Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer a Red 1980 Fiat
124 Spider. Fiat released their first Spider model in 1966. This
small, lightweight roadster was a direct competitor for cars like
the MG B or the Triumph TR6. The Fiat had quite a few items that
were technologically more advanced than the British sports cars of
the time. All Spiders had coil springs in all four corners, where
some competitors had leaf springs. They also had a twin overhead
cam four-cylinder which was a rev-happy and peppy little gem.
Displacement changed over the years and by '80 had grown to 2.0
Liters, hence the "2000 Spider" name. 5-speed transmissions, the
Fiat has a great flair. Sprinkle in liberal Italian flair, and this
is the obvious choice over its British counterparts. This
particular Spider is a well-maintained example with restoration
work. The car has received a completely new paint job just to
spruce it up back to its original glory. The body is solid and the
paint is not only eye-catching but also suitable for this little
Italian gem. The bumpers, brackets, and headlight rings all look
nice, and there is a new windshield. In addition to a fresh
exterior finish, the interior has also been treated well The result
is a beautiful Spider that runs and drives even better than it
looks. If you haven't driven a Fiat Spider, you truly are missing
out. They have plenty of power, handle like a go-kart, and with the
top down they have a fun factor that you just can't get with a
hardtop. These cars are a bit of a hidden gem of the classic
European car world. Snatch this one up before anyone else catches
on. You can see this 1980 Fiat 124 Spider in greater detail in our
Dallas showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact
