We featured a 1979 Fiat Brava last week and I thought to myself, my oh my, finding a 131/Brava in this shape is a near impossible task these days. Well, apparently these Fiats are multiplying, because here comes an early sedan variant for sale in New York in a decidedly seventies color.

This ONE OWNER, ARIZONA BEAUTY looks almost as good as when it came from the factory in 1975. Engine is in good shape, does not smoke, does not leak, nice and quiet. Our mechanics performed basic tune-up on this car and an oil change. Automatic transmission feels perfect, shifts without any problems, without delay, and without noise. Suspension is in excellent shape, car tracks nice and straight. We have replaced brakes on this beauty. There is no evidence of any electrical problems.
The exterior is in excellent shape for a 1975. The paint looks original with absolutely no rust anywhere on the car. Vinyl seats, carpet floor and glass are all in great shape. Our upholstery shop has installed brand new vinyl seats. They have took extra care to keep the original design. Interior of this car is nice and clean. This FIAT has 4 matching brand new tires that are mounted on good straight rims.
It will be sold with a clear title and it will be sold as-is, where-is.
Compared to the two door Brava we featured last week, this 131S has some pluses and minuses. While this sedan variant has covered a lot less miles over the years, the GM sourced 3-speed automatic will sap a lot of the fun out of the driving experience. I should know, as my mother owned a 1978 131S coupe with this very transmission when I was a young kid. These Fiats aren't exactly the most collectable of valued Italian cars, so I would suspect swapping in a 5-speed manual gearbox wouldn't affect the value all that much. Even more so than the silver two-door featured last week, this has to be the best 131/Brava I have seen for sale in the US in the past several years.
