Designed by famed Dutch-American stylist Tom Tjaada, whilst he was working for legendary coachbuilder Carrozzeria Pininfarina, the 124 Sport Spider debuted at the Turin Auto Show in November 1966. It bore a striking resemblance to one of his earlier designs, the Ferrari 275 GTS and as such, was also very handsome and widely acclaimed. Fitted with a twin-cam, four-cylinder engine, it also had lively performance to match its sporty looks. Engine displacement increased progressively over its nineteen-year lifespan from 1,400 to 2,000 cc.
Offered here is a very nice US delivered car with a 1,600 cc engine, five-speed transmission and the highly desirable, pre-Federal regulation, chrome bumpers. The body is remarkably straight and rust free and the paint and interior both in very good condition. On the road, the car runs & drives extremely well, with good power, no smoke and smooth synchros.
124 Spiders are not only great to look at and tremendous fun to drive, but one of the most inexpensive ways to enter the world of classic, European convertibles. However, good, solid examples are now increasingly hard to find, particularly early ones with the chrome bumpers, making this an excellent opportunity to own a pedigreed, Italian sportscar!
