Pininfarina an Italian car body design firm, put pencil to paper and created the original Spider design in 1966. As the car and design evolved, a 2.0 Liter engine made its way into the 1980 Model year and was then marketed as the Spider 2000 (This car in particular is a very early Spider 2000). 


Exterior paint, which was redone once by previous owner, is in excellent condition

Engine runs smoothly 

Transmission shifts flawlessly

Car is in spectacular shape for its age retaining collector car mileage 

All exterior chrome and lighting are in excellent condition, as well as the tan convertible top, which is very simple to put up and down. The Spider's convertible top was known for its simplicity of use — allowing a seated driver to quickly raise or lower the top from inside the vehicle.

A chrome luggage rack covers the trunk area and is also in great condition! 

The Interior features tan leather bucket seats, tan pile carpeting, matching original floor mats, a black vinyl dash framing a walnut veneer dashboard. Aluminum rings surround all instruments, and a matching tan center console houses various climate controls, as well as a handbrake.

Air conditioning was converted to the current R134A Freon, vents in the dash and instruments all work and it blows cold!!!. 

Heat works nicely

The Fiat 124 Sport Spider is a 2+2 convertible sports car marketed by Fiat for model years 1966-1980. Designed and manufactured by world renown Italian coach builder Carrozzeria Pininfarina, the monocoque, front-engine, rear drive Sport Spider debuted at the November 1966 Turin Auto Show with styling by Tom Tjaarda.

Fiat later marketed the car as the Spider 2000 (1979-1982), and Pininfarina marketed the car at the end of its production as the Pininfarina Spider Azzura (1983-1985).

The cars were small but very capable sports cars that were fun to drive. The interiors were roomy and well-appointed compared to other cars in its class, and the Pininfarina body design would prove timeless.

The four-cylinder engine used in the spider and coupé is a double overhead cam, aluminum crossflow head version of the sedan's pushrod unit. It started in 1966 with a capacity of 1438 cc progressively increasing to 1608 cc in 1970 (although this was reduced to 1,592 cc in 1973), 1,756 cc in 1974 and finally 1,995 cc in 1979. The Fiat twin cam engine was designed by ex-Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi.[7] Bosch fuel injection replaced the previously used Weber carburetors midway through 1980. In 1981 and 1982, Fiat USA, Inc. partnered with Legend Industries to create approximately 700 turbo models for US markets. There was also a supercharged model called "Volumex" offered toward the end of production, which was sold only in Europe, where it cost 35% more than a regular, fuel-injected Spider Europa. This family of engines remained in production into the 1990s giving it one of the longest production runs in automotive history. The double overhead cam (DOHC) version was the first mass manufactured DOHC to utilize reinforced rubber timing belts, an innovation that would come into nearly universal use in the decades after its introduction. Its family powered race cars such as the FIAT 131 Mirafiori, 124 Special T, Lancia Beta Montecarlo, Delta Integrale and many others.
