1973 Fiat 128 SL 1.3
One of the best seventies Fiats
So many... I don't have enough space to tell all of them.
However. Mechanical, engine, gearbox, struts and MAJOR RUST PROBLEMS... a real nightmare.
If you don't have a hobby, buy a Fiat.
It's a good way to spent time, you can dismantle it, fix it, polish it etc etc.
If you like seventies street racers cars, buy a decent one and enjoy a lot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I purchased a 73 128SL new and was very disappointed with it. It shed it's exhuast system 3 times. At 38,000 miles the cam timing belt broke. This jammed a valve into a piston, breaking the crown. The piston crown rotated and punched the broken valve stem up thru the head. Since the valve stem would not compress, the force bent a rod and broke the crankshaft. This was just after Fiat abandoned the US market. The car was sold for scrap.
