1981 Fiat OtherI bought this car from the original owner in 2012. It has 39,000 original miles. It is in very good condition, nd can be restored or used as a fun daily driver. With two grandkids and too many projects, t is time for it to go to someone with more time than I have.
Here is what I have done. New rebuilt 5 speed transmission, ew convertible top, ew rear exhaust section and muffler, ew battery and terminals, new plug wires, lugs, tc. New front left caliper and pads.
Here is what it needs to be complete.. Interior center console around the gear shift lever should be replaced. It will need a new thermostatic fan sensor. Fan and radiator work fine, ut the fan runs full time. There are some very minor cracks in the seats, ut they are totally functional. The car could use paint. Although it is solid, here are some small nicks around the door, nd several minor dents. The only paint bubbling is a 6 inch section at the top of the right quarter panel. I have included pictures.
Tires are Dunlop GT Qualifiers 205/60 R 13 on Alloy Cromadora rims. Plenty of tread left.
Some quirks. This car has AC...not sure why. It runs fine, ut I had planned to remove it. It also has the high DOT bumpers, hich I was planning to remove. Or you could leave them, f you want the car to be original. Apparently the bumper height was still a bit too low, o a lot of that era of sports cars had longer springs installed to meet the DOT standards. Shorter springs are available. The key was either lost at one point or the ignition switch failed. The previous owner put in a replacement switch, ut I have all the keys, nd the original ignition is there..
I have taken tons of pics, o if there are any specific photos you would like to see, ust e-mail me. I have also posted a short video on YouTube. ( Davis' 1981 Fiat Spider)
