1972 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Needed lots of jobs... mainly welding - not surprising for a 40 year old Fiat!
A very attractive looking car. Understated elegant design with the lovely and lively twin cam engine, mated to a very slick 5 speed box. Goes at quite a pace, and with discs all round and stiff (on this car) suspension, it handles very well.
Vision is very good, and the interior is pure '60s Italian charm. It's noisy, but who cares when you're listening to the music made by that wonderful twin cam!
Downsides are the typically Italian driving position; I like it personally, but others may not. Relatively (25 MPG) high fuel consumption and rust, rust, rust, and more rust! If you can find a rust free car or are willing to put in the work though, this car is a real joy to drive, or to stand and stare at!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
