This fantastic little coupe has only covered 43,400 miles and looks the part. The yellow is a nice shade that highlights the beautiful Pininfarina body lines. I'm not crazy about the late model aftermarket steering wheel or the alloys, but the latter is probably acceptable for the period. Overall it looks like a fantastic opportunity to get a great low mileage example at a decent price in a down economy.

quote from seller's listing:
California car shipped to Connecticut several years ago, purchased and driven by me, (I love it)! Minor repairs done in my term with her include replacing metal (small weak spot) in passenger side floor and reinforcing rear shock mounts, single weber installed and tuned on an 1800cc BC Fiat motor (California owner had transplant done from original 1600cc motor), suspension is good, five speed manual (close ratio short throw) is good and the clutch is good.
Having tuned the Weber carburator, added new plugs and coil, I beleive she could use a valve adjustment... I have not had the time to address that issue. With the exception of the clock, all gauges work, manual windows and all glass is in good shape and the seals are ok.
THE BODY & CHASSIS IS TRULY GREAT, EXTREMELY SOLID with but a few small spots of surface rust, an incredible example when you consider 99.9% of Fiat 124 Coupes (in the world) have gone the ashes to ashes, rust to dust route (in their first ten years or less) and don't even exist in any condition anywhere!
The interior is an integrated mix-match of what appears to be '72 era and '74 era pieces... Having owned (new back in the day) a '71 Coupe followed by a new '74 coupe I can't even tell what is from which group, I think the dash and seats (in good shape) are from a '74-'76, possibly the engine donor car in CA... none of it matters, it all fits and looks right as well as having had a new headliner installed in CA.
