The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Debuting in 1966, the Fiat 124 Spider was an affordable way to get stunning Pininfarina coachwork at a very affordable price. Based on rugged Fiat mechanicals, the diminutive 2+2 endured for nearly two decades virtually unchanged. Towards the end, cars like this 1982 Spider were a last-ditch effort to keep the brand viable in the US, and with the new model Fiats growing in popularity, these little classics are suddenly becoming highly collectable pieces of Italian carrozzeria. Wearing a repainted coat of bright red paint, this little Italian still draws stares and compliments, and the old stigma of the Fiat brand is long gone, especially with the cute 500 now on sale in US showrooms. Today, most folks see a wonderful vintage roadster in the purest Italian style, and the Pininfarina design looks far more expensive than it actually is. Most importantly, this car has never been rusty, which is the death knell for many hand-built roadsters of the era, and it appears that this one has always been a treasured collectable based on the low miles alone. As a result, it fits together as well as it did years ago, the doors close with a precise-sounding thunk, and it has an all-of-a-piece feeling thats present only in nicely preserved original cars. With the 2000 Spider, you also get the exclusive Pininfarina badges on the lower quarter panels, and while the bumpers were redesigned in the 70s to comply with US crash standards, the result is far more successful than, say, the MGBs rubber schnoz. Slide behind the wheel and youre back in the 60s someplace in Europe thats warm and has an oceanfront beach. The interior is original and in remarkably good order, tan seat covers included, again suggesting that this car has always been special to someone. That dash is real wood, not some fake veneer, and Veglia instruments show crisp markings and an elegant simplicity that was a hallmark of the Italians. The original radio has been replaced by a newer Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo head unit mounted low in the factory dash slot. Two occasional seats in back provide room for packages or maybe one or two passengers for very short trips, and theres a matching tan convertible top thats stows in seconds. Theres even a usable trunk that belies the cars size and suggests that the Italians knew how to travel. The 2.0-liter fuel-injected motor is this cars factory original equipment. The dual overhead camshaft makes it one of those wonderful motors on which the Italians have built their passionate reputation. It has a low-end power surge that just begs to be revved, and youre rewarded for your aggression by a sweet exhaust note. Of course, the best part is the motor that has a relatively low 86,215 miles on the odometer. But, it wasnt just the engine that made these Fiat Spiders great. These are tight handling cars with well-balanced suspensions that love windy roads. They even kept up with some of the most modern features by coming with a five-speed manual transmission and four-wheel disc brakes. Theres nothing exotic underneath, and it is quite solid, which is always nice to see in an Italian convertible. And to finish the look, handsome alloy wheels are wrapped in 185/60/14 low-profile radials. A fun alternative to a British roadster, documented with its original window sticker and owners manual, this 1982 Fiat Spider 2000 is a sure-fire future collectable. Call today!
