614 E. Auto Center Dr.
A peppy motor, five-speed stick, four-wheel disc brakes, nimble handling, and open-top fun - this is exactly why the attraction of this 1976 Fiat 124 Spider goes well-beyond its European styling and its attractive price.
This is an icon because it's a gorgeous Italian. Pininfarina made sure you'd love the details in the lines, right down to the twin bulges in the hood. And the full-length golden pinstripe is distinctive against the blue paint as it highlights the best curves of the profile. Plus, the rear luggage rack is just ready for a wicker picnic basket as you go for a drive in the country. As you look over the whole car, you will find areas that could be improved. The value price is designed to leave room in your budget to make upgrades and personalize whenever you want. The heart of the appeal is that from day one this is a solid car with well-fitting panels. In fact, it's coming off of long-term ownership where the consignor is believed to have owned this for nearly 45 years. So it's an attractive and respected drop-top that's coming out of the desirable Arizona climate.
The interior has a highly original presentation. It shows off fun details, like how there is real wood in the trim. Plus, all the best elements are there for this enthusiast-driven drop-top. That means a shifter exactly where your right hand wants to be, a grippy sports steering wheel, and a full set of crisp and clean Veglia instruments with large speedo and tach. A black convertible top looks good against the dark blue, or you may decide to upgrade it to the color of your choice. That's the beauty of a car like this. These Fiats were imported in larger quantities, and so it's often quite easy to source new replacement components for an affordable price. And no matter how you individualize this car, there is an attraction to these later-style European convertibles. They are fundamentally easier to live with thanks to proper roll-up windows and an attitude that they can be more useful than just a playboy's toy.
The engine is what makes this Italian so desirable. Fiat's twin cam engine is a longstanding powerhouse that is known for being exceptionally versatile. It produces a wonderful sound throughout its rev range that is the reason many of us have a passion for driving. Best of all, the five-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over this symphony. But, it wasn't just the engine that made these Fiat 124 Spiders great. These are tight handling cars with well-balanced suspensions that love backroads. And the four-wheel power disc brakes give you better stopping power than most other 1970s machines.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and new emblems. This is the Italian icon coming off of long-term care. So if you see the potential that we do, you need to call today!
