1963 Fiat 1200 Convertible

If you were to draw a picture of the quintessential Italian roadster, the Fiat 1200 might be close to the finish product after the pen hits the paper. These were the father of the Fiat 124 Spider, which lived on into the 1980s. With a 1.2 liter four cylinder engine, the 1200 wasn't the fastest open roofed Italian cars of the era, but they offered a lot of style and fun from a small package. This example for sale in Pennsylvania has been freshened up and the hardtop is a nice addition that you don't see every day.

This is a very nice 1963 Fiat 1200 Spyder. The paint is in very good condition. It runs and drives extremely well. The seat covers are about a year old. We just redid the door panels, full rubber kit and floor mats/carpet. Mechanically, it is very sound as well, just refreshed. It is very clean. We have the removable hard top only. It needs very little to be a gem. We have the original owner's manuals as well.

The best Fiat 1200 Convertible out there may bring $20,000 to $25,000, so a clean example falling short of perfection, such as this car, should be a little bit under that range. I'd say a fair price is being asked here, especially considering that if you just give it a mere passing glance, you might think you spotted the more expensive Lancia Aurelia B24 Convertible of the era.
