Fiat's 124 model has special significance, as it was produced throughout the Sixties into the Eighties as a sedan, coupe, and convertible, also known as the Spider. Renowned for its fizzy Lampredi-designed engine, fine handling dynamics, and timeless Italian style, classic 124s are highly desirable by those who covet Italian automobiles. This 1981 Fiat 124 Spider 2000 comes with just 34,000 miles on the clock and is a superb way to experience open-top Italian sports car motoring. It's even got a tasty engine to boot! We can also see the Spider service manual included in the sale.
Styled by Pininfarina and Tom Tjaarda, the design of the 124 Spider was distinctive in comparison to sedan and coupe brethren, and the wheelbase is shorter as well. This 1981 Fiat 124 Sport Spider 2000 comes dressed in a beautiful white hue, with gold alloys and a reportedly new beige Auto Ricambi top. You can also note the North American-style extended black bumpers and twin tailpipes out back. Reminding you that this car sports a forced-induction engine are 'Turbo' emblem decals on the front, sides, and rear. Pininfarina emblems also reside on the rear flanks, and we see that the hood emblem is of the current Fiat logo script. The reportedly original interior is strictly for two and features an airy beige theme with a wood-trimmed dash. The driver grips a sporty Fiat steering wheel, changes gear via a wood-topped lever, and gazes at a bevy of black-faced analog gauges. A turbo boost gauge sits right in the center for added excitement. We also observe that a modern Alpine head unit with CD and USB compatibility sits in the center console.
The Fiat Spider was offered with a range of engines, from a 1.4L four-cylinder to a supercharged 2.0L four-cylinder. This 1981 Fiat 124 Sport Spider 2000 comes with something unique built for the North American market by Legend Industries. It's said that only 700 examples were produced of this 2.0L turbocharged powerplant by the company, which helped raise power to around 120hp, better than the 102hp that the North American market 2.0L was able to wheeze out thanks to emissions regulations. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a lovely manual transmission. The current owner reports a new catalytic converter, belts, rubbers, and suspension.
