1979 Fiat 128 3P Coupe SS from UK and Ireland - Comments

This was the first car I ever owned.

I paid £300 for it (it cost more than that to insure).

I agree - it was a beautiful car to drive - very quick away from the lights. And very rare.

My example was red (faded red in reality).

I loved it - I'd buy another - for nostalgic reasons.

I had two of these fantastic cars. The first, a turquoise '77 coupe met its end against a telegraph pole & was replaced by metallic blue berlinetta with deck chair seats & 'Starsky & Hutch' stripes. It cost £450 and took me all over Europe & nearly all through University. It was still driving brilliantly at 130,000 miles when the MOT man pointed out the unwisdom of welding patches on patches! R.I.P. DGV 294T.

I love the look of the Fiat 128 Coupe, and would be extremely interested if anyone is selling one. If you are, email me on www.gmzrock@hotmail.com. Thanks.

Brilliant cars, I have had two. This was a few years ago, and I used to enjoyed showing up xr2s and 3i`s with these little rockets. Usual rust hassle, but well worthwhile these cars are vastly underrated, I would snap one one up now if it came my way!!

The 128 3p was my second car some 20 years ago... i still have very fond memories of this pocket rocket. A family member nick-named it the "HOLY" car for obvious reasons, it made way for an Uno.... not quite the same appeal. Have not seen one for about 10 years now, are there any left on the roads?

TTP 80T served me well, even my mechanic enjoyed test driving it and telling me how well it pulled up our local hills, and what an exhaust note! It turned heads even in the 80s and as an 18 year old I was more than happy!

I had two 3Ps. The first, red car was a cracking little thing. No idea what possessed me to sell AHG 345R.

Hi guys, I had one of these over twenty years ago (PTT59R).

I was the envy of all my friends. Picked it up from a farmer. It was in his barn. Fell in love with it instantly, and we spent the next 2 years burning off XR2's and 3's. I'd love another one and all its rust. Due to another driver not looking where he was going, it now rests in pieces somewhere, probably enough metal left in it to be a baked bean can. Fiat, please bring them back!!!

Does anyone know where I can get one in the south of England? They are insane cars!!! I really want one. How much do they generally go for as well?
