1979 Fiat Other

Up for sale is this beautiful and sexy little Italian sports car; the 1979 Fiat 2000 Spider.
The Fiat Spider was styled by the famous Italian design house Pininfarina. It has well proportioned lines that are at the same time soft and angular. The twin power domes on the hood are its most familiar characteristic. Unlike many of its competitors, his car looks great even with the top up! It is in every way as classic an Italian look as any Alfa or Lancia.
This car has had a steady stream of recent maintenance including new water pump and thermostat, lectric fuel pump, ew ignition system and a rebuilt Weber two barrel carburetor. The gas tank was cleaned and relined and the radiator re-cored. Overall the engine compartment is very tidy and stock. The front end has been completely overhauled including new upper and lower control are assemblies (with ball joints and bushings), ront shocks and wheel bearings.
This solid body car has a fresh high quality paint job in the original Azure Blue Metallic that looks fantastic. The original interior is in very good condition with only minimal signs of wear. The carpet and underlay is new and includes a pair of brand new FIAT embroidered floor mats. Two canvas tops are provided w/ the vehicle. The top installed fits perfect and will keep you dry if mother nature decides to rain on your parade. The top does have a few scuffs, icks and frays and the rear window has yellowed but is clear to see through. The other top is brand new and just waiting to be installed. The bright work and chrome is very presentable with only minor imperfections. The glass is flawless. The original Cloverleaf steel wheels have been refurbished and painted and are clad with fresh tires. Also comes with a Kenwood Stereo - FM/AM/CD/BLUETOOTH/MIC w/ installed premium speakers.
This car drives great! The 2.0 liter double overhead cam engine makes great sounds and with the smooth shifting 5-speed transmission cruises down the highway at 70 without a fuss. The car tracks straight down the road under heavy acceleration or hard braking.
Top down and wind in your hair, his car is a joy. Cruising casually through the countryside with a friend it is comfortable and compliant. Row through the gears and open the secondaries and it will sing you a sweet Italian song.
This car makes no excuses at any car show or meet. It can be a weekender or daily driver. It is as high a quality driver condition Fiat Spider as you will find. The stunning blue paint job makes it a stand out example. Contrary to what you may have heard these cars are actually quite reliable and parts are readily available. Value wise they slide in between their '70's competitor MGB's aand Triumph TR6's. Like most '70's classic collector cars they have seen steady appreciation over the last 5 years. The Fiat Spider is truly an affordable classic.
