1975 Fiat 124 Spider Description:

Extensive restoration, many new parts. Rust-free (minor surface rust on bottom of frame rails).
New - battery, gear-reduction motor, ignition coil, hoses, thermostat, belts, plugs, rebuilt head, shocks, upper and lower control arms, coil springs repainted and functional (you can have the spring compressor with the car), brake calipers and pads all around (disc brakes all 4 wheels), fuel pump, radiator flushed and repaired, cooling fan works (temp doesn't rise above 90), repainted steel wheels, oil pan gasket, parking brake cable, probably more just can't think of the rest (have most receipts).
Convertible top is newer (replaced by p.o.), plastic rear window has a break in it (my bad, pushed on it when it was cold last winter).
Transmission and clutch function smoothly. All gauges with the exception of oil pressure work normally (oil pressure is good, checked with oil pressure tester, you can have the tester with the car).
Interior is in very good condition, seat covers are new from p.o., new carpet, upgraded stereo (I have the original radio as well). Door panels will need to be recovered/replaced, all hardware is functional. Dash panel is solid with no cracks. Shop manual (reproduction) and Haines manual.
Car no longer has catalytic converter, smog equipment removed long ago, egr light remains on because of this.
Tires look good but cannot tell you the age, at least 5 years that I've had the car, don't know when the p.o. replaced them.
Many extra parts, including a hardtop and extra transmission if interested.
Starts with ease, still haven't got it dialed-in for max performance, certainly good enough however.
One issue is tendency of the motor to die when gear is first engaged. If I continue to press the accelerator, the engine will continue to run but is rough as if it's not firing on all cylinders. If you're concerned that it is a clutch or transmission issue, I can't say (I suspect an electrical issue), but I do have the extra transmission (from a 1980 Fiat 2000, swap in swap out) and I have no desire to trouble-shoot.
Will need to be trailered.
