Model Fiat 124 AS Spider
Year 1969
Colour Ferrari Pozzi Blue
Description

Offered for sale and arriving with us shortly, a DTR restored, upgraded and improved Fiat 124 AS Spider (second generation AS).

The first series (AS) Spiders, were denoted by their unique rear light assemblies and 'flat' bonnets and were produced up until 1970 (there is some overlap). They are by far the prettiest and purest of all the 124 Spider models, and will command at least 100% more than the very best impact bumper cars.

Our car was restored by us from an imported Californian vehicle with largely original paint. We stripped and then media blasted the body before zinc phosphate coating and repairing all metalwork as was required. The underside was etch primed, 3M stone guarded and then painted body colour. The topside was hand finished with 2/3 primed coats and painted inside and out in Ferrari Pozzi Blue.

Mechanically the car was fully rebuilt and upgraded, including a fully balanced 1800 engine (the best of the bunch in our opinion), new pistons, polished crank with new bearings, unleaded head conversion with all new valves and seals. The gearbox was fully rebuilt and a new uprated clutch fitted. All axle and wheel bearings were replaced, as were brake calipers, discs and pads. The susupension was upgraded with progressive road springs, new balljoints and bushes. The pipework was remade front to rear. All mechaincal ancillary units were rebuilt or replaced with orignal where available. The starter motor has been upgraded to a hi torque geared unit and the distributor is new and electronic for ease of starting. The radiator was rebuild with a higher flow new cored unit and the fan upgraded.

Costmetically, the car was converted to right hand drive, with full and correct strengthening and original 124 Coupe steering components. The wiring loom was replaced with a new unit with upgraded connectors and rebuilt fuse box.

Inside the car was re-trimmed in Bridge of Weir leather (tan) together with Wilton carpetting and a new custom made mohair soft top.

Original Cromodora alloys were sourced, rebuilt and re-shod with new tyres including the spare.

This car drives as a 124 Spider should, it is light, responsive and happy to sit at speed on motorways, or run around town. It wants for nothing and is supplied fully servied wiith a new MoT and new cambelt from the point of sale.
