A peppy motor, five-speed stick, four-wheel disc brakes, nimble
handling, and open-top fun - this is exactly why the attraction of
this 1976 Fiat 124 Spider goes well-beyond its European styling and
its attractive price.
This is an icon because it's a gorgeous Italian. Pininfarina made
sure you'd love the details in the lines, right down to the twin
bulges in the hood. And the full-length golden pinstripe is
distinctive against the blue paint as it highlights the best curves
of the profile. Plus, the rear luggage rack is just ready for a
wicker picnic basket as you go for a drive in the country. As you
look over the whole car, you will find areas that could be
improved. The value price is designed to leave room in your budget
to make upgrades and personalize whenever you want. The heart of
the appeal is that from day one this is a solid car with
well-fitting panels. In fact, it's coming off of long-term
ownership where the consignor is believed to have owned this for
nearly 45 years. So it's an attractive and respected drop-top
that's coming out of the desirable Arizona climate.
The interior has a highly original presentation. It shows off fun
details, like how there is real wood in the trim. Plus, all the
best elements are there for this enthusiast-driven drop-top. That
means a shifter exactly where your right hand wants to be, a grippy
sports steering wheel, and a full set of crisp and clean Veglia
instruments with large speedo and tach. A black convertible top
looks good against the dark blue, or you may decide to upgrade it
to the color of your choice. That's the beauty of a car like this.
These Fiats were imported in larger quantities, and so it's often
quite easy to source new replacement components for an affordable
price. And no matter how you individualize this car, there is an
attraction to these later-style European convertibles. They are
fundamentally easier to live with thanks to proper roll-up windows
and an attitude that they can be more useful than just a playboy's
The engine is what makes this Italian so desirable. Fiat's twin cam
engine is a longstanding powerhouse that is known for being
exceptionally versatile. It produces a wonderful sound throughout
its rev range that is the reason many of us have a passion for
driving. Best of all, the five-speed manual transmission gives you
firm control over this symphony. But, it wasn't just the engine
that made these Fiat 124 Spiders great. These are tight handling
cars with well-balanced suspensions that love backroads. And the
four-wheel power disc brakes give you better stopping power than
most other 1970s machines.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and new emblems.
This is the Italian icon coming off of long-term care. So if you
see the potential that we do, you need to call today!
