DESCRIPTION

1982 Fiat Spyder 2000 Convertible

For consignment, a 1982 Fiat Spyder with a title verified 65,285 actual miles. This is a rare vintage as only 3,456 units were produced in 1982 and it\'s unknown how many are left and roadworthy. This one was produced in San Giorgio Canavese after Pininfarina took over the manufacturing of the Fiats in late 1981 and reset the serial numbers. This car wears number 269.

Exterior
Black paint coats this little convertible contrasted by the chrome bumpers. The distinctive double hump hood is such an epic design cue that Fiat used it on the 2016-2019 resurgence of 124\'s. The finger pull door handles, another memorable feature, was mimicked by other makers and even showed up in first generation Miatas. Pininfarina emblems are found on the rear quarter panels before the back wheels and the key to the boot is embedded in the last zero of the 2000 model plate. Fantastico! 14-inch Fiat wheels look to be in good condition. The tan canvas soft top has a plastic window which is clear. We note a small tear on the top and it could benefit from some deep cleaning. The paint has various blemishes, most notably at the door gap, and other areas of invasive rust. Please view the photo set for images for severity and locations.

Interior
Tan leather might be the best contrasting color for black exteriors, and we\'re greeted with leather bound door panels in tan with a cap of black. The bucket seats and their stitched pattern are in good condition and also might benefit from a deep cleaning and conditioning. The rear bench is small and picks up on the stitched pattern of the front. The 3 spoke Fiat steering wheel appears to be in good condition and our eyes are drawn to the wood lined dashboard. It\'s here that black faced gauges take center stage and relay information critical to the sports car driving experience. The center panel contains some control knobs and idiot lights including one that reads \"Ex Gas Sensor\" which illuminates when an oxygen sensor notes abnormal conditions in the exhaust gas. An AM/FM/Cassette player is located just under this panel followed by a lighter, map light, and hazard light indicator. The wood door on the glove box is in beautiful condition and houses the exotic \"Pininfarina Spider 2000\" dash plaque. We note two cracks that go from front to back on the dash cover. The floor mounted shifter has a smooth wood knob and tan leather boot, also set in a wood panel. Vent controls flank a parking brake in a plastic base that could use some restoration. The saddle floor covering is fairly dirty as are the protective carpeted mats.

Drivetrain
Our car has a 2.0 liter DOHC inline 4 cylinder engine that was factory rated at 101 horsepower. It is fuel injected with the Bosch Jet L-tronic system and is tied to a 5-speed manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels and 3.90 gears. Power brakes are found on the vehicle, disc up front and drums in the rear. The engine bay is what we would qualify as driver condition with some metal parts showing surface rust.

Undercarriage
Driver quality here as well with areas of surface rust including the front control arm, brake backing plates, and cross member. The single exhaust flows into a stock style muffler then exits in the rear. Independent suspension with coil springs is up front while the rear suspension consists of trailing arms, coil springs, and a panhard bar. The undercarriage is relatively dry but we do note an open rust hole in the floorboard.

Drive-Ability
101 horsepower doesn\'t sound like much but is a small and nimble sports car it\'s all you really need. The car runs out well and although the top was up, we could imagine this is quite the open air ride. The suspension keeps the car planted in turns and the power brakes keep things under control.

Here\'s an Italian convertible with relatively low miles and in need of a bit of TLC, but having all the bones in place to make a great weekend toy. There\'s a wide network with whom you can interact in the Fiat Club of America and many of them get together once a year for their national meet, the Fiat Freakout. This year, in June in Greenville, North Carolina. Grab this rare \'82 and head on down!
