1979 Fiat Pininfarina Spider with 75,141 original miles. It was in storage for over a decade before I obtained it many years ago. It has a new convertible top (1 1/2 year old). The engine is a 4-cylinder 1995cc/86hp 2bbl.
Original color was dark green. It needed to be repainted, so I did so in red. It also comes with the complete original Service Manual. Car is very fun to drive. My next project was to rewire the vehicle, to be followed by redoing the interior. The dash has cracks in the vinyl and needs to be recovered or replaced. It is classified by nadaguides.com as having "low retail value" - which in this case is $6,025.00. It is not a parts vehicle.

My 20 year old son wanted the car and we had planned on working on it together. He passed in June from a traumatic brain bleed and I no longer have the desire to work on the car. I realize that it is time that it move on. I would prefer not to be selling the car, but it is time that it go to someone who can finish what we have started.
