Nice But: ’69 Fiat 124
Readers, you can help a few of us out with this one. Look at this pretty nice Fiat 124. It has low miles for ’69, she says it is a 4-speed (but it is a 5-speed) and from the photos it looks like something one would consider. There are no exact production figures but some say the number of all Fiat 124 Coupes and Spiders produced exceed 150,000. The design by Pininfarina is very handsome and the Lampredi designed engine, at around 1500cc is pretty sweet. The seller is asking $12,500 for it and that might be high. You won’t know until you actually see it. But what we wonder about is why consider this when you can have an Alfa Romeo Spider 1750 or 2000 for the same or less money. Alfa doesn’t share production numbers but there will be fewer Alfas built than the Fiat. The Alfa seems like just more car for the money or potentially less money. And get this, you become a member of the Alfa Club with folks who own GTAs, Montreals and 8Cs. We like Fiats but the best you can move up to in a Fiat Club is a Dino. Nice people in both clubs, so the choice is yours. Click here to contact the seller.
