The 1973 Fiat 130 Coupe we featured a few weeks ago is back up for sale and the seller has lowered the price by over $5,000, increasing bidding interest in this rare, luxurious two door.
Up for sale this rare find, this is a 1973 Fiat Pininfarina 130 Coupe, upon research we have found that the Fiat 130 Coupe was never sold new in the United States, and very few that reside stateside. It is a shame this car lives in relative obscurity, as it was an award winning design with a 3.2 liter V6 developed by Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi. Most 130 coupes featured a Borg-Warner 3 speed automatic, but this one is a 5-speed manual was available, current owner owns both auto and this fabulous 5 speed. Four wheel disc brakes and four wheel independent suspension rounded out the package. This example for sale in our showroom located in Miami and is finished in blue with cream leather interior that is nothin short of like new condition, if you collect rare European cars this is a must and a quite a popular look for the 1970s.
It's apparent the seller is motivated to move this car with this recent price reduction, but will it be enough to garner interest amongst the Fiat and Italian car faithful? Those in the market for a 130 Coupe have few options on US shores and this 5-speed coupe is certainly a mint example. I still believe the asking price is about $5,000 to $7,000 too dear, but in a little less than a week, we'll see where the final bid settles.
