1978 Fiat 124 Sport Spider


I decided spring of 2019 was time to get the 82 Spider back on the road, and of course any ambition of this sort requires a parts car. This one turned up on Craigslist in Dallas, and we drove up and got it along with some boxes of parts. Unfortunately, it really seems too nice to be a parts car, and so now I have two Spiders to get back on the road.

It has wheels from a Maserati Biturbo, and was repainted at some point. It has a few rust holes in the floor, but nothing we haven't seen before. The engine is disassembled, but appears so far to be the 1756cc correct for the year. There are an abnormal number of pistons included with the car but no windshield.
