Classic Car Overview

PENDING SALE!! This 1981 Fiat 2000 Spider is a rust-free California car that has benefitted from a full restoration that was just completed in the Spring of 2022. The Fiat 2000 Spider was one of the last evolutions of this sportscar with its body designed and built by Pininfarina. It also benefits from the larger 2-liter DOHC engine with the efficiency of the Bosch fuel injection. This is a terrific car for affordable fun. This Fiat 2000 was purchased new at Massagli Motors in Daly City, CA by John Ray Leland of San Mateo, CA on April 30, 1982. It remained in Northern California until being acquired by its present owner, Michael OConnell in Washington. Mr. OConnell set out to surprise his wife with the gift of this Fiat after having purchased and restored several cars for himself over the years. Basically, he felt a little guilty and wanted to give her something in return! Mr. OConnell set out on a complete restoration of the Fiat, taking the car down to its bare unibody. Between his investment and the investment of its prior, 20-year California owner, this Fiat is now fully restored and in very nice condition throughout. The livery is now finished in its Rosso Cherry (Paint Code 136F) with the upgraded Robbins tan canvas convertible top. The paint is likely better than originally supplied by Fiat, although there are a few very small imperfections upon close examination. The Paint has wonderful shine and luster. We love the correct 13 Speedline wheels alloy wheels that give it a much more modern look. Overall, this Spider is in very nice to excellent condition and would be welcomed at any local or regional show. The interior was completely removed during the restoration. The floorpans were all checked for rust, but this example being from California had no rust nor any prior accidents. Everything was stripped and coated and Dynamat installed for insulation from heat and noise. The interior is two-toned in Saddle Tan and Medium Beige vinyl. The look is very elegant and works well with the ample wood trim on the dashboard and the Ferrero steering wheel. The Veglia Borletti instrumentation works well, and the interior overall also looks very good to excellent throughout. The engine compartment is in show condition due to the thoroughness of the restoration. The 2-liter engine and 5-speed transmission were rebuilt by the prior owner and the differential and suspension were rebuilt during the restoration. It is surprisingly tight and free of rattles. A complete list of items restored is included in the photo gallery. The Fiat is a delight to drive with its 102 hp and we encourage you to view the test-drive video for this Spider. The undercarriage is well presented and in excellent condition. This is one of only 4,747 Fiat 2000 Spiders produced for the global market in 1981. The NADA Retail value is $36,600 and the Hagerty No. 1 and No. 2 Values are $43,000 and $24,800, respectively. Included in the sale are restoration photos, documentation, car cover
