1969 Fiat 124 Description

I’m listing this car for a friend that had a huge Fiat collection and this is one of his last. He used one car each week to commute to work (12 miles/week) over the last 15 years.

Very few of this cars in existence!!!! This is one of the best examples as I know .

The four cylinder, 1438cc, aluminum, twin overhead cam engine was designed by ex-Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi.

Car was designed by Mario Boano at Fiat Style Center.
