Timeless style meets luxury options and an interesting story of rarity in this 1984 Fiat Pininfarina Azzurra. So when you can find an affordable example that has been properly cared for and maintained all its life (and it has a meticulously kept history to prove it) then you know you're looking at something special.
It's easy to fall in love with a classic Italian bombshell like this one. The twin bulges in the hood and sleek bodylines from the famed Pininfarina design house gives it sporty sophistication. But those who know these cars also know this is an interesting example. While these are the same as the Fiat Spiders, they only carry the Pininfarina name. For the final few years these were imported independently, which ties them to the Fiat history, but also makes the Azzurra a rarity all on their own. This lineage is why this example has been so well respected over its three-owner lifetime. The original red paint has received a modern profession respray to keep this Italian glowing in the sunshine. Even when you want to be buttoned-up to the world, the taut tan roof looks quite distinctive.
Another thing that makes the Azzurra so special are the features. It was more expensive to import these cars without Fiat, and so they made sure to offset the added price by offering loaded interiors. This includes power windows, power locks, wood trim, and an AM/FM stereo. Plus, the air conditioning has been converted to modern R134a so you can enjoy top-down motoring long into the summer season. The original leather bucket seats had the surfaces lovingly restored by the consignor. This gives you a great space slip behind the sports steering wheel, gaze at the full Veglia instruments, and feel the gearstick in that ideal driver's position.
The motor is the only part of the car that officially wears the Fiat name. This 2.0-liter fuel-injected engine is a long-standing powerhouse from Fiat, and it's believed to be the car's factory original equipment. You can see from the tidy presentation that it has received the right respect and care over the years. The dual overhead camshaft makes it one of those wonderful motors on which the Italians have built their passionate reputation. It has a low-end power surge that just begs to be revved, and you're rewarded for your aggression by a sweet exhaust note of the newer ANSA system. But it wasn't just the engine that made these Fiat Spiders great. These are tight handling cars with well-balanced suspensions that love backroads. They even kept up with some of the most modern features by coming with a five-speed manual transmission (rebuilt) and four-wheel disc brakes. Plus, you'll love this is a true Italian, right down to the Cromodora wheels and Pirelli tires.
The sale come complete with the original window sticker, ownership history, owner's manual, and maintenance records. This is a unique classic with the kind of correct care we're all looking for. So you know this is a fleeting opportunity at a great affordable classic convertible. Call now!
