GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer another affordable classic, this 1978 Fiat 124 Spider. The 124 was designed by world renown Italian coach builder, Pininfarina. This sporty little convertible debuted in 1966 at the Turin Auto Show and was made available to the European and US market. The cars were small but very capable sports cars that were fun to drive. The interiors were roomy and well appointed compared to other cars in its class, and the Pininfarina body design would prove timeless.
The 1978 Fiat 124 spider offered here is a very tidy example that sports what appears to be an all original interior showing just 64635 miles on the odometer. It is powered by its spunky 1.8 liter dual over head cam engine, 5 speed manual transmission and rear wheel drive. The car has been repainted in its original factory color, Rosso Bougainville, over light tan interior. Highlights include wood steering wheel, original interior, newer paint, newer tires, rear mounted antenna and spare tire. The car starts right up and offers much fun when behind the wheel.
Fiat 124 Spiders are fun reliable cars that are quite easy to own. The offer a great driving experience and are accepted in any automotive arena. A lot of fun for not a lot of money.
