1980 Fiat 124 Spider Description:

A rust-free southern California 1980 Fiat Spider 2000 Pininfarina Convertible with automatic transmission, nice condition original red factory color paint with original tan interior with matching tan soft top and matching tan tonneau cover. Purchased in 2006 from original southern California owner who had garaged the car, shipped to Illinois then, was never driven since, and has always been stored indoors and inside a “Classic Car Cocoon” impregnated with Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors. I had intended to upgrade with various parts but won't be doing that so the car can go. Buyer can have the cocoon.

Floor boards and all typical rust-prone areas are solid and rust-free. Car has had no accidents of any kind. Original dashboard and wood veneer. When purchased, the 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine was strong and the transmission shifted smoothly through all the gears. It has not been started since 2006 so will not likely run right off the bat. Original luggage rack on the trunk. Mechanical work represented at the time of purchase (I believe these records are stored in the car but I have not visited it since 2006):

52,800 miles - strip down suspension and replaced all bushings and tie rods, replaced brake lines and rear brake control valve, flushed system, replaced shocks, 4 wheel alignment;

54,109 miles - replaced water pump;

55,489 miles; removed and replaced fuel injection hoses, repaired ignition switch, replaced thermo fan switch, replaced misc hoses;

55,556 miles - timing belt replaced, camshaft seals replaced, transmission service, ignition lock replaced;

56,438 miles - replaced transmission mount, installed cut-off switch;

July and August 2005 - removed and replaced right side brake caliper, remove and replace throttle cable, remove and replace fuel pump, remove and replace fuel filter, flush brake fluid, flush coolant; remove and replace front brake pads and rotors; bleed and top off cooling system, adjust fuel injection mixture to proper valves, fix antenna, adjust timing, adjust idle; remove and replace fuel sending unit.

The photos are from the original listing. The car is currently in storage in Decatur, Illinois. Clean title in possession. Will meet in Decatur to transfer car and title (I reside in Ohio but could meet at the car's storage location for an inspection).
