Footnotes

  • One of two large coupés styled by Pininfarina in the 1970s, the other being the Rolls-Royce Camargue, the FIAT 130 Coupé was arguably the more successful design. Based on the 130 saloon that had appeared two years previously, FIAT's flagship coupé was introduced in 1971 with UK deliveries commencing the following year. A two-door four-seater, the 130 Coupé used only the larger (3.2-litre) of the saloon's two overhead-cam V6 engine options while retaining the latter's all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Three-speed automatic or ZF five-speed manual were the transmission options. Top speed of this elegant and luxurious Gran Turismo was 118mph (manual) or 115mph (auto). Production of the 130 Coupé ended in 1977 after 4,491 had been built, only some 500-or-so of which were right-hand drive models.

    Supplied new in the UK, this automatic transmission example underwent body restoration and a re-spray in 1990/91. The car was purchased by the current vendor from Bonhams' sale at the RAF Museum, Hendon in April 2007 (Lot 781) at which time it was stated that the cam belts had been changed recently. Driven on numerous rallies and to various classic vehicle shows in recent times, 'PUU 387L' currently displays a total of 58,975 miles on the odometer and is described as in generally excellent condition, benefiting from newly replaced brake pipes. A rare opportunity to acquire a rarely seen Pininfarina classic, all the rarer in this condition.
