FIAT 124 SPORT SPIDER
Designed by Tom Tjaarda for coachbuilder Pininfarina, the 124 Sport Spider was presented at the Turin Auto Show in 1966 – the same year another iconic Italian roadster was launched, the Alfa Romeo Spider “Duetto”. Although its mechanics were largely based on the Fiat 124 Berlina, the vehicle immediately stood out for its sporty features. The car showcased here was one of the first made, as can be deducted from the chassis number.
It was recently acquired by FCA Heritage within the Reloaded by Creators program, and has undergone several restoration operations.
The interiors (carpeting, door panels and leather upholstery) have been replaced in keeping with original features the top was cleaned and the vinylite window polished. A general mechanical check-up and complete bodywork polishing were also carried out. The tyres, rims and wheels have been replaced.
