Quentin Willson once said “why endure the pain of a three year restoration when for less money you can buy a low mileage car with that most valuable of virtues – virgin originality”. Well this example of Fiat’s classic Spiders certainly lives up to the title of 'original low mileage car'. Bought by the present owner from a collector in Arizona - the driest state in the USA! This car does not know the meaning of the word rust and has never even seen an accident (nor for that matter hardly any rain). This 1981, 46,000 mile example is as original as possible (except for the addition of a door mirror on the passenger side – and even this, the owner took the trouble to obtain an exact matching model – not easy – this is why the other spiders you see have non matching mirrors). The time of day clock has been replaced with an oil pressure gauge (an original Veglia instrument of course) figuring that it is more important to keep an eye on the oil pressure rather than the time of day. The car has always been garaged and covered and the reason the paint and hood are so good is that the owner in Arizona used to take his car cover with him and cover it over even when he parked it at the shopping mall! The car has never been repainted, the interior and carpets (even the over mats) are all original and so to is the hood – with its rear window still bright and clear over most of its area. The original factory hood although a little ragged just along the leading edges, is watertight and works very well – the rear window to is almost perfect (the previous owner showed me a trick how to fold it so it will not suffer the usual damage of convertibles' rear windows.) I have the original bill of sale which shows the addition of Fiat alloy wheels which are in perfect condition as is the alloy steering wheel – both factory fitted options. The car has a new servo and all of the flexible brake lines are new. Exhaust, battery and tyres are all very good.
