White Wedgy – 1975 Fiat X1/9

February 20, 2016

Long recognized for being great to drive, the Fiat X1/9 has not quite started getting its due among all but the Fiat cult of enthusiasts. Early models are especially attractive designs, and the 1975-1978 cars had ladder-style bumpers that, while clunky, obstructed the overall design much less than what some of the competition did. When you get the car in silver or white, it helps hide the bumpers even more, and that’s what we have here in this 1975 Fiat X1/9 for sale for $2950 in Portland, OR.

Projects and Parts – Fiat 124 Spider, X1/9, 500 and 850 Spider

October 16, 2015

It’s time for a survey of some interesting Fiats available for sale. The first is this 1976 Fiat Spider for sale for $1850 in Long Beach, CA. There’s nothing fun like a classic car with a wacky paint job, and this is a great example. Was the painter going for patriotic Italian-American? Beach umbrella style? Curiously, there are auxiliary lights on the rear fenders, and the top frame needs adjustment or repair. It’s said to run and drive well, but not much more is provided in the way of details. Stripes mean nobody will run into you when you’re waiting for a tow.

Countach Junior – 1974 Fiat X1/9

November 22, 2013

Perhaps relating this humble sports car to a Countach is overdoing it a little. But give it a moment’s thought – how many early 1970s cars can you describe with the following attributes: angular wedge shape, mid-engine, Italian, and in a bright pale green on bright blue color scheme? Most people will think of a Miura or Countach when you list those off, but you can have a similar experience for much less. And it’s arguably more fun, since if you stuff it into a hedge you won’t have wrecked a six-figure car, even if these are probably equally rare. You can find this 1974 Fiat X1/9 for sale in Oakland, CA with bidding currently at $2225, reserve not met and just over one day left to go.
