1985 Fiat Other for sale
Current customer rating: (13 votes) based on
If you are looking at this listing. I am assuming you know all about them already. It is estimated that less than 50 of these cars are in existence. I would place this as a #3 car average in need of some attention based on level of finish desired but not in need of a full restoration. The recent services performed by Luciano's in Sarasota includes. timing belts. radiator (have original) thermostat belts etc. The car starts and runs and drives very well. the air conditioning is cold and it currently needs nothing to be enjoyed. It is stored in a temperature controlled warehouse with my other collector and race cars. There is some bubbling on the drivers side rear quarter panel but otherwise the car is in great shape. I have sold lots of cars on Ebay and have maintained my positive rating by listing accurately and honestly. Condition is perception. which varies from person to person. if it is feasible you should come see the car in person. This will ensure that my perception and yours are aligned. If you would like any additional photos or to have the car inspected etc. you are welcome to do so during the auction. Please note that if you bid on the car you are committed to buying it so the time to do your due diligence is before not after. I am often asked the question why am I selling it. here is my proactive reply: Cars like this are not owned. I have been it's care taker. it does not get enough use or attention so it is time for someone else to enjoy it. This is not a distress sale. I am not interested in trades or crazy offers. The value of these cars. while hard to determine. range from a #4 which is a neglected car that needs complete restoration at $12-20k. #3 Average car $30-40k (based on 2016 sale) #2 clean restored car $60-75k and there has not been a concourse car sold that I know of.
For those of you that are not familiar with the car here is a brief write up and history:
Introduced in 1966 the Fiat 124 Spider was one of the most popular cars in Fiat's history. In 1982 Fiat felt the car had run its course and planned to end production. Pininfarina. the company that designed and built the car under license from Fiat. thought the car had a future. They took over the car as their own brand. the first and only time in the companies 100 year history. The 1983 and 1984 models were basically identical cars to the 124 with a simple badge and name change. In 1985 they released a half year model 1985. 5 an all new redesigned car with over one hundred changes this was no longer a renamed Fiat 124 Spider but an all new car. The company produced 1200 cars for the 1985. 5 run with only 186 designated to the USA. Shortly after the release. Pininfarina was awarded the contract from Cadillac to make the Avanti. It is estimated that less than 50 of the USA cars remain. This is a mostly original well cared for example. it can be driven used and enjoyed or stored and showed at events. While it will need some attention as would any car of its age. it is not a car that requires a complete restoration.
This is a great opportunity to own a very rare highly collectible car without having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars. This car sold new for $20k which is approximately $45. 00 in today's dollars.
To all of the passionate owners that have sent me hundreds of messages. The information above is based on my research and knowledge. I do not claim to be an expert on the subject. I appreciate your willingness to share information and will validate and update the listing accordingly.
Thank you for your interest
