Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this highly original and well-documented 1971 Fiat 124 1600 Sport Spider. This example is a case study in originality and correctness; single-family ownership from new until our acquisition in 2016 with 89,000 documented miles.
Impeccable records to new including the original sales documents when the first owner, an Air Force pilot, took delivery while stationed in Italy. After returning to the U.S. this Fiat lived in Texas, North Carolina and Georgia and is remarkably rust free and wearing its original paint.
Recent extensive mechanical freshening including complete engine tune up, timing belt, brake rebuild, carb rebuild, new tires on desirable Cromodora wheels, new convertible top, engine detail and more.
Interior is original and excellent with only minor patina on the wood veneer; a working period Blaupunkt is fitted. Paint and body are likewise in excellent original condition with the finish showing minor patina but in a condition far too nice to consider a repaint. Notably this 124 was delivered with the rare Pininfarina hardtop option which has a fantastic look and has been well kept.
Performance is sprightly thanks to the quick-revving twin cam with a higher compression ratio and less smog equipment than later cars; couple that with the much lighter and better-looking early bumpers and it makes for a nice package. The five-speed gearbox exhibits none of the typical synchro issues and is a joy to use.
Original tools, books, matching spare, records, sales docs and sales literature are included. For more information about this 1971 Fiat 124 Spider for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
