White with black and white check cloth.
The Fiat 124 Coupe.
Launched in 1967 as a coupe and spider with a 90hp 1.4 litre twin cam engine, disc brakes all round a 5 speed gearbox and double wishbone front suspension. The two cars received universal praise as a nimble fun to drive sports car, the only real criticism being that they were slightly under powered, the first revision, ‘B’ sought to answer this by the addition of a 110 bhp high compression twin carburetor 1.6 but ?Fiat in their wisdom ‘softened’ the suspension and changed the cars personality, this did not please everybody. In answer the third and final revision ‘C’ saw a return to the original and tighter suspension set up and further power now with 1800cc and 120bhp as well as the 1600 so the car finally had both the power and handling to match.
So this is the most desirable third series car, Full Gold plate ASI registered. Registered on 24/4/1973. It has had 3 owners the second keeping it until 2007 when it then went to Siracusa Sicily, so spending all its life in the warm and dry regions of Perugia and then to Sicily in Italy. All the body panels are factory original and it certainly doesn’t look to have been in an accident but what surprises the most is the complete lack of any rust, rare even in Italy. The immaculate and original interior is an unusual black and white check it has also been specified with optional Cromadora 68 magnesium alloy wheels.
The engine is in perfect condition it fires up instantly and sounds crisp with rapid throttle response, excellent oil pressure and not a whiff of blue smoke the cam belt and tensioner have been changed and the carbuerettor has been cleaned and re set. The gearbox is light and quick with no noise or synchromesh bulking. ?
In it’s Original White the body is factory original throughout, rust and accident free, although the paint has been refreshed at some point to a good standard with no overspray or poor masking evident, with just one or two stone chips it retains all its original features. The doors open and shut easily and fit perfectly, no slamming needed!
In its original black and white check cloth the seats are in excellent condition with no rips, the carpets are as new in fact there is no real wear anywhere at all and no cracks on the dashboard.
Everything but everything works even the clock.
Clean, tidy and undamaged with it’s original carpet a full tool kit, jack and alloy spare wheel with serviceable tyre!
These are greatly underrated cars that are fantastic to drive, very much like a more resolved Alfa 105 coupe at half the price. Light precise steering, sublime gear change crisp engine note, powerful brakes a car that can be steered with your right foot.
