Description

Fiat's perennially pretty 850 Spider emanated from the prolific pen of Giorgetto Giugiaro, was built by Bertone and unveiled at the 1965 Geneva Salon. It was notable for the free-flowing elegance of it lines and the fact the hood could be completely hidden from view below a panel ahead of the rear-mounted engine. Early examples were powered by the same 843cc engine as the Saloon, but in 1968 the Spider's unit was enlarged to 903cc - this version was known as the Sport. The example offered is thought to have begun life in California and to have been converted to right-hand drive upon its importation to the UK in 1991, spending a period in Northern Ireland before returning to the mainland. Finished in an attractive shade of Light Blue, 'FRA 762L' is offered complete with a new starter motor dog and battery, screw-on type oil filter, adjustable dampers, history file containing invoices and old MOTs, plus one valid into June next year.
