Fiat Dino Coupé 2400 – 1971

I think this is the first Verde medio I’ve ever seen dressing a Dino Coupé. Looks unusual and great.

This 2400 from 1971 with original plates it’s awesome and looks in mint conditions. Marvellous beige interiorfor one of my favourite 70s GT. The only off-key thing is the side-mirror.

Always seen a chrome one. This looks like a cheap 80s Fiat Uno thing. Am I wrong?

Fiat 131 CL Mirafiori (1982)

Straight before the introduction of the new Regata (or Regatta in many foreign markets) the Fiat 131 got its last restyling.
Not that much of a change here (but it’s appealed as third series) from the classic family car it is.

Following a similar fate to its illustrious predecessors in the Fiat range, beside the long Italian production career, this car’s range was produced in many other countries, like Spain, where it was marketed with the Seat brand, but also in Turkey and even in Ethopia!
A globe trotter and a multi soul car (maybe Abarth rings a bell…).

The car here is a no frills Fiat 131 Mirafiori CL third series, with the basic 1.3 liters engine.
Enough to dream of a rally car? Obviously not, but a simple good companion to have inside the box could be a reassuring thing (but watch out from the rust!).

Fiat 131 Abarth Rally

This awesome classic Fiat 131 Abarth Rally in the classic rosso arancio color was at the entrance of the 2020 Arezzo Classic Motors fair, and was the bait for the Verona Legend Cars event of the same year.

Due to the Covid, the Verona fair has been cancelled (will it be back in 2021?) and the Arezzo fair has been postponed.
Hard times for the classic

Fiat 1500 GT Ghia (1965)

These small production GTs made by Carrozzeria Ghia in the beginning of the 60s and based on the Fiat 1500 engine (1.5 liter – 72HP) have a laborious production with the chassis made by Gilco and the style created by Sergio Sartorelli.

Fiat 1500 GT Ghia
Fiat 1500 GT Ghia

Considered as a mixture of styles, grabbin’ many elements from the most famous GT produced in the 60s, it may deserved a more powerful engine unit to give credit to the technical solution adopted in the construction. A fine fuoriserie Fiat.
The numbers of units really produced is quite unknown as happen often with the Ghia productions, but it seems going under the 1000 units (there’s seems to be an official letter sent from Ghia stating 846 pieces as the total run).
Gorgeous unusual and rare. What’s best?

Fiat 128 1100 (1969)

Looks strong without bumper but under the hood there’s the classic 1.1 liters engine. This Fiat 128 from the Targa AC race looks quite tough: yellow fog lights, no front bumpers and front grill without the chrome line in the middle.

The result is remakable (and, as you know, I’m not a fan of the no bumpers setups). To complete all a fine color. Looks like s Turquoise to me but the color code should be the Grigio Garda 604

Fiat 850 Coupé (1966)

One of my favourite Fiat models, basically because the Boano design turned a common seadn body in a fine sporty car.

This first series from 1966 looks surprisingly good even in this beige coffee&milk color.
Caught at the @automoto_r 2020 in Turin (its real home)

Fiat 132

The third series of the Fiat 132 had the uncomfortable role of being the top of the range Fiat at the end of the 70s, a role taken after the Fiat 130 production end and before the introduction of the unlucky Argenta.
Fiat 132

Fiat 132This car from the last @automoto_r fair in. Turin (with Turin registration although not of first registration) still looks great with its double headlights couple, quite a trademark of many late 70s models.

Fiat 2300S Coupé Abarth

One of cars that every Fiat fun regret. Awesome style by Ghia (designed by Sergio Sartorelli and a young Tom Tjaarda), fast and elegant.
A real GT from an era where Fiat was in competition with Alfa and Lancia.

Fiat 2300s Coupé S Abarth
Fiat 2300s Coupé S Abarth

It has been also a movie star as the opponent of the iconic Lancia Aurelia in “Il Sorpasso” by Dino Risi, where Vittorio Gassman desperatly tries to overtake the Fiat GT in final sequence of the movie.
So, why Fiat gave up on these cars range as It even outsold both Lancia Flamina and Alfa Romeo 2000 and 2600 in the Italian market?
This Fiat 2300 Coupé S Abarth is a solid, beautiful, hiclass car moved by the 2.3 liters dual carbs 6 cylinders engine (created by Aurelio Lampredi) and developed with Karl Abarth. This time the silver livery is more than appropriate for a car that I’ve met at the last @autoemotodepocapadova fair in Padua.

Fiat 600 D Zagato Elaborazione

Fiat 600 D Zagato Elaborazione

Il mondo dell’elaborazione delle piccole Fiat ha avuto i suoi capisaldi in Abarth e Giannini, che hanno legato indissolubilmente la loro storia ai successi alle loro pepate versioni. Poco nota (anche a me in vero) la presenza di un ridottissimo numero di Fiat 600 su cui è intervenuta la carrozzeria Zagato. Una tra queste vetture viene offerta in questi giorni all’asta da Pandolfini e non poteva perdere l’occasione di incontrare questo “unicorno” Milanese

Rarissima e inattesa

Scelta curiosa quella di far allestire una vettura di questo tipo da Zagato, che solitamente si occupava di vetture di categorie superiori. Questa vettura faceva dell’understatement il suo cavallo di forza, con un’insospettabile brillantezza e un’estetica particolare, che sicuramente fa intuire che non si tratti di una 600 normale

Fiat 600 D - Zagato Elaborazione - Foto Ciclootto
Fiat 600 D – Zagato Elaborazione – Foto Ciclootto

A “tradire” le velleità dell’auto ci pensa un assetto ben tarato al suolo e il doppio scarico posteriore a incutere “timore” nel traffico

Estetica: la cura della grande Z

L’intervento di Zagato sull’estetica della piccola Fiat è tutto sommato sobrio, eccetto per il motivo bicolore che descrive l’auto. La fascia di colore beige scuro segue l’andamento del cofano anteriore realizzando due fasce laterali che si raccordano con il fregio cromato che adorna la fiancata disegnando una vera e propria Z sulla fiancata.

Fiat 600 D - Zagato Elaborazione - Foto Ciclootto

Pochi gli orpelli e cromature (di gran voga nelle edizioni speciali del tempo) con un simbolo sul cofano anteriore e le indicazioni Zagato-Elaborazione ai lati della carrozzeria.

Gli interni, arricchiti ma non stravolti, vedono la presenza di un contagiri aggiuntivo alla sinistra del tachimetro (con fondo scala a 150Km/h) e la Z di Zagato cromata presente sulla parte destra della plancia.

Splendido il volante Nardi presente all’interno.

Stanguellini per il motore

Non solo elaborazione “estetica” per quest’auto, su cui è presente una modifica al motore realizzata a Modena da Stanguellini con testata e scarico modificati con un potenziamento se vogliamo “modesto” ma un suono (provato personalmente) davvero coinvolgente.

Piccoli dettagli per un’asta di interesse

Molti i dettagli particolari di quest’auto, che ha dalla sua parte l’estrema rarità e un’ottimo stato di conservazione.

Offerta da Pandolfini aste in questi giorni (con una stima di 18.000-20.000 euro) rappresenta una delle più esotiche interpretazioni della 600 che mi è capitato di vedere. Un vero unicorno che sicuramente susciterà interesse in qualunque manifestazione italiana.

Fiat 128 1100 (1974) – Verde Chiaro 304
A plain, easy Fiat 128 1100. This car from 1974 in its verde chiaro 304 color was playing at home as I’ve caught it at the Lingotto’s factory building and it is even registered with a Turin plate.
Very nice classic Fiat.
