What the Fiat?? Fiat 128 2-door

Well, I’m not going to go into a long diatribe since I just wrote about a pair of these, but I just wanted to make sure I featured this since it’s in remarkably good shape for the price. If you’re in the market for a Fiat 128, right now you’re spoiled for choice – this makes for a record 3 cars currently available. Being a southern car, this one should be pretty rust-free too. You can find it in Lancaster, CA, just outside of LA, for $1850.

See what I mean by this being a clean car? Finding these is not too hard if you’re dedicated, but finding a clean, unmolested example is a bit more unusual. Figure on the silver paint being oxidized, and the interior plastics having sun damage, but overall it’s not too bad. There must be some rust somewhere, but if it’s not readily visible, that’s a good start.

Seller says it’s only got 31,000 miles, and it’s been sitting for 7 years. The brakes also need work – not unexpected on a car that’s been stationary for so long. Count on fuel system cleaning as well as changing out fluids and rubber parts.

All in all, a pretty nice car. If you want to go crazy, some shiny silver paint and a good detailing would probably have this thing looking spiffy.
