The enthusiast looking for some last-minute fun in the sun can hardly do better than this attractive Fiat 850 Spider. Not only is it a desirable, late-production model with the most powerful available engine, it is finished in the elegant color combination of Graphite over a red interior, with a black convertible top. It also boasts such popular options as chrome wire wheels, whitewall tires, a luggage rack, and front and rear bumper guards. Accompanying the car are an optional tonneau cover, original Fiat sales brochures, and a tool kit with jack and owner’s manual.

But wait, there’s more . . .

What makes this car particularly special is what did not come with it from the factory. Included is an undisclosed amount of cold, hard, American greenbacks in the trunk to sweeten the deal. How much cash is offered with the Fiat? Only the car’s winning bidder will know for certain.

RM Sotheby’s has been a proud supporter of the AACA for many, many years. As such, our longtime friends Joseph and Margie Cassini, along with RM Sotheby’s, have graciously donated this 1971 Fiat 850 Spider, while avid car enthusiasts Wayne Carini and Ralph Marano have donated the “Loot in the Boot” (for the winning bidder) in an effort to raise funds for the AACA Library & Research Center.

A 501 (c)(3) non-profit library, the AACA Library sets the standard in celebrating, collecting, preserving, and sharing our automotive legacy, and it is recognized as the world’s premier automotive reference library. The AACA Library is a free public library and available to enthusiasts worldwide; with over 1.2 million documents, it is a great resource for car nuts, historians, and restoration specialists alike.

All proceeds from the sale of this car will be donated to this amazing organization. We wish the AACA the best of luck and thank them for their continued efforts in the preservation and enjoyment of the collector car hobby.
