Not often: ’71 Fiat 124 Spider
Pininfarina designed some lovely Spiders for Fiat and the 124 is probably the nicest. The 124 Spider/Coupe was a lower price and lower performance alternative to Alfa Romeo. 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. Most of the cars sold in the U.S. were equipped with a single Weber carburetor. What a sweet little engine it is. But the big problem with these cars is the materials they used to keep the price competitive. And that is why so few have survived the ravages of time. It isn’t often we see one available so this one caught our eye. The seller says it is a rust-free car with one repaint in the original red color. The photos lead us to believe it is more orange than red but that could be a glitch in the digital world of photography. It has traveled just 65,000 miles in 43 years and never in bad weather. If true, the survival of this one is understandable. Trust but verify. Click here for the listing.
