One of my all time favorites, best in white.

Very neatly proportioned. Is this a Giugiaro design?

That's a very sharp Fiat...I've never seen this particular model. I've got to wonder where people source parts for all of these rare Italian cars!

Quite likely my new favorite Fiat. I would love to sit in the back of this thing and enjoy those windows! The rear profile and that wide back end are insanely cool. Best Fiat ever, I bet it's a blast.

Nice find! The spyders are a dime a dozen but I rarely see the sedans. Wow, this one is pristine.

There's a good parts scene - most of us get our stuff from International Auto or Auto Ricambi but there's also used shops like Matthews. Never had a problem getting what I needed, which is one thing that makes these cars a realistic classic.

correction - "coupe" not "sedan"

~ had a friend back in Iowa whose mother drove one of these. i think they got the shape just right.

Nice-124s are cool machines. Those wheels are terrible, however. Slotmags would look awesome on it.

i dig the wheels, - superlites. I think they augment the thin line of the rear triangle. And they make the canvas roof pop out too. Wooden steering wheel, one mirror...agh, it's too perfect.

Calvin - the Coup├ęs were designed in-house by Mario Boano. They share most of their mechanicals with the 124 Spider. Jakob - the wheels are probably 15" Rotas, which are another Superlite/Minilite/Panasport style wheel - and one of the few new wheels currently available in Fiat's oddball 4x98 bolt pattern. I personally think 14" wheels look better on the car (like Panasports), and that 13's are the most period correct. 15's look too modern to me.
