Fiat 124 Sport Coupé, 1971
Fiat 124 Sport Coupé, year (January) 1971. Colour pale green combined with a beige leatherette/cloth interior with cognac colour carpet and rubber protective mats. This magnificent Fiat 124 Sport Coupé was imported from Italy to the Netherlands in 2019. This wonderful Fiat is in an excellent original condition, and the car drives perfectly! This Fiat Sport Coupé shows all the original details, and everything looks perfectly preserved, a true time capsule! Most classic car odometers count up to 99.999 and then to zero again, the odometer currently reads 31.694 kilometres, 131.694 is considered to be realistic considering the minimal signs of previous use. Recently, at 30.000 km the car has undergone extensive service. The brake system was overhauled by fitting new discs, brake pads and a new brake master cylinder. Furthermore, the carburettor was renewed, the timing belt was renewed, and the rubber engine mounts were renewed. Invoices of the work performed are available. You will be hard pressed to find a better, and more beautiful Fiat 124 Sport Coupé in this super original, and perfectly preserved, top condition!

The Fiat 124 saloon model was introduced in 1966 on the Geneva motor Show. The Fiat 124 range was extended with a station wagon and a 124 Sport Spider designed by Pininfarina later that year. On the Geneva show of 1967 the 124 Sport Coupé, designed by the Fiat Styling centre, was presented. Where the Fiat 124 saloon and station wagon were fitted with a common 1200 cc four-cylinder engine with overhead valves and pushrods, the 124 sport Spider and the 124 Sport Coupé featured an advanced 1438 cc unit with twin overhead camshafts (driven by a toothed belt) and a five-speed gearbox instead of a four-speed unit. In 1969 the Sport models were succeeded by the updated series 2 models with new styling details and a new 1608 cc 110 bhp engine option which was derived from the Fiat 125. The 124 Sport Coupe was updated again in 1973 and a 1756 cc engine became available. The Sport Coupé was built until 1975. Good and well-preserved original examples are rare and very desirable.
