THE FIAT 124 SPORT SPIDER

First introduced in 1966 and based on a shortened 124 sedan floorpan and running gear, the 124 Sport Spider would prove an outstanding success for FIAT, and a worthy successor to FIAT's 1100, 1200 and 1500 Spiders built from 1957-1967. First seen at the Turin Auto Show that year, the elegant and sporting Spider made headlines and magazine covers right of the bat. The attractive design was penned by carrozzerria Pininfarina-employed legendary designer Tom Tjaarda, under Franco Martinengo's direction, and was manufactured at Pininfarina's Canavese-based workshops. Using design elements from other more up-market Pininfarina models, the charming little Spider looked most attractive and carried an affordable price that appealed to American buyers.

Launched with a 1,438cc, four-cylinder, twin-cam engine, the Spider gained 1.6-liter, 1.8-liter and, finally, 2-liter power units as the 1970s progressed. Its sophisticated twin-cam engine and five-speed transmission set it apart from the archetypal British MGs and Triumphs that were its nominal competition. The 124 Sport Spider was designed for sporting drives down the Cote d' Azur or the Pacific Coast Highway. The model remained in production for more than 15 years and became one of the most iconic and popular models of its generation.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This early chrome bumper Fiat 124 Spider has remained in the mild California climate for more than four decades, while in the hands of a devoted collector car enthusiast. The Pininfarina penned and built 124 Spider retains many original details, and could be enjoyed as is with some mechanical refurbishments, or taken to the next level with a light restoration. The FIAT is offered with a history file including an original owner's manual and remains one of the most iconic and celebrated Italian Spiders ever produced.
