  • California ‘blue-plate’ car
  • Subject of a cosmetic restoration
  • Nicely presented example of Pininfarina’s classic Fiat spider
  • The ideal first classic car for the budget-minded collector

Fiat’s 124 Sport Spider, designed by Tom Tjaarda at Pininfarina, was a classic the moment it was unveiled at the Torino Motor Show in 1966. It proved quite popular on the sales floor, too, being produced in various iterations through 1985.

This attractive example of Fiat’s classic roadster has a great look and has clearly been well cared for during its lifetime. It bears California blue plates, a testament to its long-term ownership in the Golden State. It has had just four owners from new and has appeared in several commercials and movies. In its former ownership, the 124 was treated to a comprehensive refurbishment including a professional repaint, freshened upholstery, as well as a premium black cloth top and boot cover.

It presents very nicely today and looks sharp on chromed factory steel wheels. Paintwork presents to a nice driver standard, while the interior is very tidy with the seats in good condition, no cracks in the dash, and finished with Pininfarina-logo floor mats. The engine bay is similarly very tidy.

It is hard to beat an Italian convertible cruising down the California coast, and this charming 124 offers exactly that opportunity.
