Date Nov 9, 2017

Written by Ed Higginbotham

Looking for a vintage roadster that you won’t feel bad about taking out and about? This 1977 Fiat 124 could use some TLC, but comes with the larger—but not largest—1.8-liter engine and a clean interior. The price? $3950.

In reply to BillBall :

I concur. Though it does seem priced right for there to be some evil under the paint.

To be fair, they aren't representing this car as a perfect cream puff.  It's a car that seems usable and has a few needs---- hence the reasonable price.   But yes.....I'd be on the lookout for the tin worm.  It is Italian after all!
