Introduced at the November 1966 Turin Salon, the Fiat 124 Sport Spider boasted a handsome two-door monocoque bodyshell that was not only styled but built by Pininfarina (though, Fiat assumed responsibility for final assembly). Incorporating such thoughtful features as intermittent wipers and a hood that could be raised in under twenty seconds, the Sport Spider proved a great sales success. A staple part of Fiat's model range until 1982 just under 200,000 are thought to have been made (though, over eighty percent were shipped to North America). The sale car is finished in the contrasting combination of Black bodywork and hood and Beige leather interior. It’s believed to have been imported into the UK in 1998 from Florida, since when it has been converted from left to righthand drive by Europart of Matlock. It was also treated to a new mohair hood in 2015 and a complete engine overhaul in 2017 plus re-cored radiator. Offered with a collection of invoices and old MOT certificates the vendor now classes the 1.8-litre DOHC engine, bodywork, interior trim and five-speed manual transmission all as 'very good'. This handsome Fiat currently displays a credible but unwarranted 59,400 miles as has been in current ownership since 2013. Great fun for the remaining summer months.
