1972 Fiat 130 Saloon by Pininfarina SOLD

Coys Spring Auction - Royal Horticultural Hall - London - February 27, 2007

Sold £3,999

The Fiat 130 was a large executive car available as saloon and coupé. It was launched in March 1969 replacing the previous largest and most exclusive Fiat saloon, the Fiat 2300. It was a thoroughly modern car with four-wheel independent suspension (torsion bars in the front and coil springs in the rear), standard power steering and four-wheel disc brakes and was the first Fiat to adopt an alternator instead of a direct-current generator. The Coupé, based on the same platform, joined in 1971 and was designed and built by Pininfarina, and significantly different in style, including a separate interior design. Even more luxurious, it even featured a button-operated mechanism allowing the driver to open the passenger-side door. The saloon went out of production in 1976 with 15,093 produced.

Imported in 2006 from Italy, it has been looked after by a specialist Kent-based collector for the last year, it drives well and comes complete with a full years MoT. This extremely elegant Pinanfarina styled sports saloon has a beautiful contrasting red leather interior and shouts Italian 70's chic from every pore.
