“Seen On the Street” Danbury, CT: ’78 Fiat 124 Spider

Fiat 124











Fiat always sold attractive Spiders (Spiders with an “I”) in the U.S. The design studio Pininfarina usually got the nod to pen the body. They were generally a lower price and lower performance alternative to Alfa Romeo Spiders. The last series sold in the U.S. was to be the longest lived of these. First known as the 124 Spider, when introduced in 1966, the car sported a 1500 cc DOHC four-cylinder engine that over the years went up and down in displacement several times, with most of the cars sold in the U.S. being 1756 cc and 1995 cc, both variants equipped with a single Weber carburetor. Fiat 124 SpiderIf you find a nice, original car they can be quite enjoyable and inexpensive to maintain. Yesterday, our intrepid car spotter, Mark S., was fueling his Volvo C30 Coupe when this nice ’78 Spider pulled in for a refuel. We don’t know much else about the car other than it is in Connecticut and it will cost you $7,500 to become the new owner. Mark spoke to the owner and mentioned that it might be up on this great new website (TY, Mark). So give him a call and buy this one. It looks like loads of fun for coffee money. But have it checked out just in case. Read the For Sale sign for contact information.Fiat on the street sign

      I can see why you like these. They are pretty neat. We spotted this car back in May of this year. We were getting gas at the same station. So we have no relationship with the seller. You can read his phone number in one of the photos so I suggest you call and see if he still has it. On the other hand, you could find a really nice Alfa for the same money. Let me know if you want any help locating a car. Our fees are reasonable at this price point.

    A wonderful fun car that a close friend of mine, Andy, had owned for years. Reminds me of him! A great buy for someone.
