Fiat 130 Coupé 1973 LHD The way I see it is that classic cars can score strongly in 3 different disciplines: - A) Exceptionnal technological developments for the time they were built. - B) Innovative styling. - C) Obtaining remarkable competition results. I must admit that point B is my favourite! This was also the reason why I bought this 1973 Fiat 130 Coupé. I was always impressed by the cars very pure design by Maestro Pininfarina. I remember from my childhood that my mother, who off course knew I had something with cars, showed me in a magazine the car of our national cycling hero Eddy Merckx: a metallic grey Fiat 130 Coupé! And the good thing is that exceptionnal styling doesnt have to be expensive! (jump immediately to the last line of this description ). Other elements which made me decide for this particular model: - typical fifties orange velours interior. - the marvellous 5 speed ZF gearbox (most were automatic). Between 1971 and 1977, Fiat built 4.492 examples of the 130 Coupé of which only 900 were made with the manual option. The spectacular pure design of the body was by the famous Pininfarina design studio which immediately won an award with it. The engine is a beautiful twin overhead cam 3.2 Ltr V6 producing 165bhp. Coupled to the 5-speed ZF box truly an Italian thoroughbred which allows to be driven with panache! Initially registered in the North of Italy with only 2 owners from new until last year. Very well cared for. Close inspection reveals a supersound and nicely detailed underneath with no signs of accident damage. The 119.000 Km on the clock seem to be correct. Very recently the Magnesium Cromodora wheels were fully refurbished silver powder coated and shod with 5 new 205/70/14 tyres. Just for safety of use new brake hoses, a new master cylinder and a new fuel pump were fitted. Discs, pads and exhaust system are almost new. This in depth service was organised because I was immediately tempted to use from now and then this Fiat 130 Coupé as modern classic for everyday use. Comfortable seated in the orange driver's seat, friends of me pointed out they saw me drive by with a big smile on my face! This Fiat comes with a new British MOT with no remarks, ancient Italian documents as well as the actual British Log Book + a set spare keys. Price: 28.500 Euro
