Hey guys, I'm selling my brother's 1975 Fiat 124 Spider for him. The title is clean, and since it's a 1975, it is smog-exempt in the state of California. I picked this 124 out for him since he wanted one after a failed project a few years back. It's a solid driver, but shortly after we purchased it, he moved out to the city. We then stored it in my garage on jack stands for six months. I start it once a month to let the fluids cycle, but we both recently got into motorcycles, so this one's going up for sale.
Anyways, it has a ton of work done to it, as it was previously owned by another Fiat forum member. The engine and transmission were rebuilt at some point and work flawlessly. It has a newer paint job, though it's not show quality - there are some blemishes to it. It also seems to have newer glass all the way around. It has headers and stainless steel exhaust.
The interior is good to very good condition for its age, though there is some wear. Upon receiving it, we found that the heater core was leaking so we just bypassed it and flushed the coolant. We installed some goodies on it, namely:
-Thicker front sway bar w/ polyurethane bushings
-High amp alternator
-headlight housings w/ LED headlights
-new air cleaner
It also comes with a bunch of new parts (some are pictured, some are not):
-Classic Instruments Quad Gauge Set w/ sending units (new, never ran)
-Spark plug wire set
-front & rear rotors and EBC brake pads
-front and rear brake caliper rebuild kit
-complete set of stainless steel braided lines
-emergency brake cable
-aftermarket battery tray
-silicone hose set
-Hard Top (soft top works just fine as well)
-hard top locking hardware
-Koni shocks set of 4
-extra set of gauges
-extra steering wheel
-rear differential seal kit
When we last drove it, we noticed very stiff braking. Hence, we purchased all new brake parts for it. I just got done rebuilding the rear brake calipers. The right side caliper had a leak, but the rest of the calipers worked excellent, which leads me to believe that the new brake booster does not need to be installed as of the moment. The only thing left to do would be to install the new brake cable, connect the lines, and bleed the brakes, which, depending on the sale, I may or may not get to. Not willing to part out.
All in all, this is a good daily driver. Roll bar is removable and the original rear seat bottom and seat back can be reinstalled. There may be a thing or two that you'd want to improve or work on, but it is by no means a project car. Obviously the occasional carburetor tune (again, we do start it up once a month), maybe install the shiny new parts that go with the car. My brother drove it from the Bay area to Central California and back a few times, so we know for a fact that it's a good running car.
