Fiat 124 Sport Spider 1400 - 1974
Fiat 124 Sport Spider 1400
Let PAC introduce you to the Italian spider by Fiat from the 70s, the Fiat 124 Sport Spider, it is a convertible sports car marketed by Fiat for model years 1966-1985. Designed by and manufactured at the Italian carrozzeria Pininfarina factory, the monocoque, front-engine, rear drive Sport Spider debuted at the November 1966 Turin Auto Show with styling by Tom Tjaarda.
After being retired by FIAT, Pininfarina continued the production of the model under his own brand as Pininfarina Spider Azzura for the North American market and Pininfarina Spidereuropa for the European market for three more years, from 1983 until 1985. The Fiat 124 Sport Spider was designed by Pininfarina and styled in-house by Tom Tjaarda. The 124 Sport Spider, 124 Sport Coupé and 124 sedan share much of their running gear – and, in the case of the coupé, platforms. The Sports Spider uses a shorter platform along with a shorter wheelbase, and in contrast to the Pinifarina styled and manufactured spider, Fiat designed and manufactured the coupé in-house.

The car was manufactured by Fiat (with a Pininfarina body) in Turin until October 1981, when Pininfarina took over manufacture in their San Giorgio Canavese plant.
It’s a fascinating roadster, comfortable, characterized by its iconic lines that capture every angle of its creative features. Accessibility is good and even driving with the hood down there is low noise and moderate air turbulence. Steering is not servo-assisted and requires a bit ‘of practice for successful maneuvering, especially when the vehicle is standing. The clutch pedal is operated with minimal pressure, the gear box is simple to use and requires just a little practice to understand
its functional features. The car is equipped with front and rear disc brakes, with the additional feature of servo assisted braking system.
This car has a good load capacity within the rear trunk area. Above the spare wheel and safety/emergency equipment, there is
enough space for two cabin trolley bags or even a hold luggage.
