Fiat 124 Spider BS1 -1971
In 1966 introduced Fiat the Pinininfarina-styled 124 Spider. Designed by Dutch designer Tom Tjaarda, who drew inspiration of his early designs for Pininfarina: the Chevrolet Corvette ‘Rondine’ and Ferrari 275 GTS. Developed in the early sixties to compete with the sporty Alfa Romeo’s. The Fiat 124 Spider with it’s by Ferrari engineer Lampredi designed 1608 cc double-overhead-cam engine and alumium crossflow head, generated 110 hp and proved to be a notorious opponent. With his low weight resulted in a atractive weight-to power-ratio of 9,5. Together with the 5 speed gearbox and 4 assisted power disc brakes, it proved to be technically advanced.
This Fiat 124 Spider is a sought after, early chrome bumper from the second series. Originally delivered in Southern California and later shipped to the Netherlands where it came into possession of the first Dutch owner, a real passionate. He rebuilt the car technically among the original 1608 cc engine, along with: the 5-speed-transmission, the complete fuel line and the complete brake system. Were needed original or new NOS parts were used. The interior received a complete new leather upholstery and a new black linen softtop was installed.
After our acquisition, we had the car repainted for cosmetical reasons (it appeared 70% in it’s first paint) in its original colorscheme “Rosso Vivio”. The alloy wheels got repainted silver after a sand blast treatment. The engine bay got a complete refreshment and all the chrome has been renewed. Needless to say that the vast majority of efforts has gone into bringing the car back in every detail, to its original condition.
The result: a sensationally beautifull Fiat 124 Sport Spider from the second series, delivered in the amazing color “Rosso Vivio”.
