BaT Auction: 1982 Fiat 124 Spider 2000

This post was originally published on this site

This 1982 Fiat 124 Spider 2000 is from the final year the platform wore a Fiat badge before being taking the Pininfarina name starting the following year. This example has been owned by the seller since 2005, when it was repainted and fitted with a new cloth top. A 1,995cc twin-cam four powers the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission and the odometer registers 70k miles. An oil and filter change was recently performed and the car is offered with records from current ownership as well as a Colorado title in the seller’s name.

A repaint was commissioned just prior to the seller’s acquisition in 2005, and a new cloth top was also fitted. Photos show the top in both its lowered and raised positions. The plastic rear window shows signs of aging along with the color-matched top cover.

Cromodora wheels are fitted with 14″ tires of unknown age. Exterior flaws include separation around the grille area along with a paint chip at the left front corner. The carpeted trunk holds the battery and is shown in several photos below.

The carpeting was replaced as part of the 2005 update per the seller, while the seats and door panels are older items. A large crack is visible near the center of the dash. A new fuel gauge was installed in 2016, and an Alpine CD player resides in place of the factory radio. Just under 70k miles are indicated on the 6-digit odometer.
