1980 Fiat 124
Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer a 1980 Fiat Spyder Pinin-farina. Along with many British automakers Fiat also had their own fun convertible called the 124 Sport Spider. First hitting the market in 1966 the 124 Sport Spider was a 2+2 convertible that was designed by Sergio Pininfarina himself. It went on sale in Europe before it arrived in the US. The delay as usual was due to Fiat needing the extra time to modify the car in order to comply with US regulations (meaning large plastic bumpers). Power came from a four-cylinder double overhead cam aluminum engine with just 89 horsepower. Fiat progressively upgraded this engine and US buyers could later get a 2.0-liter unit with 102 hp. For the 1980 model year a version with a catalytic converter and Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection was introduced and this Bosch fuel injection system replaced the older Weber carburetors. A supercharged and more expensive version also existed but was only available in Europe. When it arrived stateside the 124 was renamed the 2000 Spider and was equipped with four-wheel disc-brakes double overhead cams and a standard five-speed manual transmission which our Fiat has. Theres always been something about the classic convertible that makes every element of driving an even more enjoyable experience. Yes its great to have the wind blowing in your hair while cruising down your favorite winding roads but the combination of hearing the engine and the purity of the moment is something all driving enthusiasts understand. While its not uncommon to see some still on the road we were pleasantly surprised to find this one up for grabs in our FTL GCC showroom in relatively good condition. This 1980 124 Sport Spider 2000 has just under 50000 miles on the odometer and everything is still in proper running order. This Fiat Spyder for sale has a solid condition inside and out. Its been upgraded with a modern CD-changer and new carpets but it still comes with the original tonneau cover. For a Fiat thats more than 30 years old this 124 Sport Spider is in nice shape and its Pininfarina-designed body still looks fabulous today. Options included: Power Disc brakes vinyl seat CD/FM/AM radio Convertible manual top tonneau cover.
