500: £498 (incl. P.T.)
500L: £539 (incl. P.T.)
The ubiquitous Fiat 500 is powered by a tiny twin-cylinder air-cooled engine, and is the lowest-priced car in Britain (and in its native Italy) in its standard form. Even in its 'L' form (L is for Lusso, Italian for 'de Luxe') it undercuts the British baby cars, in spite of import duty. The 500L has the same 18 b.h.p., 499 c.c. engine as the standard 500. but the interior of the luxury version has reclining seats, carpets etc. In spite of its tiny exterior, the 500 will accommodate four adults, and will return about 50 m.p.g. under normal brisk motoring conditions. There is a cute 'estate' called Giardiniera.
FIAT 850 COUPÉ
£938 (incl. P.T.)
Looking like a baby Ferrari, the Fiat 850 Coupé uses the mechanical components of the normal 850 saloon but has a completely different 2+2 body of beautiful outline. The 903 c.c. pushrod o.h.v. engine is rear-mounted and water-cooled, so luggage is carried in the front 'boot'. With its high-compression ratio the engine puts out 52 (net) horsepower, and the car beats 90 m.p.h. Also made as an open 'Spider' in which form it is capable of about 94 m.p.h. Both models are lavishly equipped and sport light-alloy steering wheels and facias packed with instruments.
£944 (incl. P.T.)
2-dr. Sal.: £833 (incl. P.T.)
4-dr. Sal.: £876 (incl. P.T.)
A spacious and good-looking estate on the front wheel drive Fiat 128, which was voted Car of the Year for 1970 by three different juries of motoring journalists. Like the British Leyland Minis, the 128 has its engine mounted transversely at the front, but there the resemblance ends for the Italian car has a separate gearbox and many other differences. The 1116 c.c. engine has a belt-driven overhead camshaft, and a thermostatically-controlled electric cooling fan for the radiator. As well as the estate, there are two and four-door saloons, with very deep luggage boots.
Saloon: £940 (incl. P.T.)
Special : £1,025 (incl. P.T.)
Coupés: from £1,595 (incl. P.T.)
In 1967 the Fiat 124, then a brand-new model, was voted 'Car of the Year' by an international panel of motoring journalists, since when it has become a great favourite with Continental and British drivers. The compact four-door saloon body is roomy, there is plenty of luggage space, and the performance is vivid for a 1197 c.c. car. The engine has a pushrod o.h.v. engine and a power-output of 60 b.h.p. There is also a 124 Special with 1438 c.c. 70 b.h.p. engine, which is distinguished by its four headlights. This model can exceed 90 m.p.h. but has the same body as the less-expensive 124.
Saloon: £1,211 (incl. P.T.)
Special: £1,347 (incl. P.T.)
Fiat's 125 is a roomy volume produced four-door saloon of great charm. It is powered by an ingenious 1608 c.c. four-cylinder engine which is derived from the Sport Coupé/Spider engine, and has twin overhead camshafts driven by toothed flexible belts. Although a family car it will closely approach 100 m.p.h., and the more expensive 'Special' version with more highly-tuned engine and five-speed gearbox will exceed the magic figure. Equipment is lavish on both models, the latter having seats with hard-wearing nylon cloth on the contact surfaces. Brakes are servo-assisted discs.
