THE FIAT AND PININFARINA SPIDER

The introduction of the Fiat 124 was one of the most spectacular unveilings of all time. A 124 was dropped from a plane! In its first year it was awarded the European Car of the Year award and was praised for its disc brakes, lightweight body, spacious interior, and advanced coil spring rear suspension. The Spider version was introduced at the 1966 Turin Auto Show, and was produced until 1980; both designed and manufactured by Carrozzeria Pininfarina. The popular Spider was thereafter sold as the 2000 Spider, and finally Pininfarina marketed the car themselves from 1983 to the end of its production in 1985 as the Pininfarina Spider Azzura.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Beautifully presented throughout, this Pininfarina Spider Azzura is believed to have remained in the dry Colorado climate until recently, and has most recently been on display at Denver's fabulous LeMay Auto Museum. The Spider was reportedly purchased used in 1990 from the originating dealer, with just 9,500 miles from new. The cars second owner carefully maintained the car, using it sparingly, until the consignor purchased it in 2013.

The smart Pininfarina Spider Azzura remains in highly original and well cared for condition, and the cars odometer reading just shy of 15,000 at the time of cataloging is believed to be the actual mileage. The previous owner carefully kept great records for the car, and saved many of the service-parts that were replaced over the years. The car has been carefully preserved over the years, and many of the factory finished are indeed believed to still be original and unrestored. The car is offered with period Paraphernalia, original owners manuals, tools, tonneau cover, a comprehensive history file and old, original replacement parts taken off the car in the past.

Presented in the as-factory-delivered Rosso Vivo exterior color over a neatly contrasting Tan interior, this must be one of the best-kept Pininfarina Spider Azzura's available anywhere.

Saleroom notices

  • The Azzura is the only car to date to wear the Pininfarina badge exclusively. Priced at $17,000 when new, these cars cost as much as a Lincoln Town Car, and featured many design and engineering improvements over the FIAT 124 series.
