1972 Fiat 124
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The Fiat 124 was developed by Abarth for Group IV homologation and approximately 1,000 examples were created. These were one of the earliest products of the Fiat-Abarth union.
This example was first registered to Fiat Auto S.p.A. and was a Works car for rallying. It was given Torino registration TO E52788 and has remained in Italy for all of its life. It is not clear if the car was ever actually used in competition.
This 1972 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider Group IV Rally Car is currently finished in period livery with all of the rally accessories, such as an extra light hood on the front of the car and mudguards. The interior is minimalistic, with all non-essential material removed, and fitted with period-correct bucket seats. The four-cylinder, dual overhead cam, engine has two Weber twin-choke carburetors and offers 128 horsepower (DIN). There is a five-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction's Monaco sale. The car was estimated to sell for €60.000-€80.000. Bidding reached €45.000 but was not enough to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
