What do Lada and Fiat have in common? None other that Fiat’s 124, a small family car manufactured between 1966 and 1974 and licensed to Lada. The Lada outsourcing makes the Fiat 124 platform the fifth selling automotive platform in the world. Three variants were released with the 124 Sport Spider, a two-seater convertible being the performance-oriented model. The Sport Spider was nothing like its family variant, it was sleeker, more aerodynamic and powerful. Up for grabs is a 1969 Fiat 124 Sport Spider with a total mileage of 68,000 miles and a rebuilt engine.
