1959 Fiat Abarth 750S Allemano Spyder - A $95,000.00 Fiat

I'm not going to write much about this car, it's not the usual JaCG type of car and the seller has hit all the points I would have hit anyway, but I had to at least do a little post about it.

This car was recently scheduled for auction by Bonhams & Butterfields, but for reasons unknown it was withdrawn from the auction. (Bonhams estimated the value of this car to be between $55,000.00 and $75,000.00, a far cry from the $95,000.00 now being asked for it. I wonder if that had something to do with it being withdrawn?)

This is one of those cars that is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

Unless you're at the right high-end car show at the right time, your chances of seeing one of these is pretty slim. Even if you don't have $95,000.00 to spend on a car, the eBay listing, with a ton of clear pictures, is well worth checking out.

Located in Weston, FL, click here to see the eBay listing.

(Just a thought... You could probably buy 4,000 decent Fiat 124 sedans, coupes and Spiders for $95,000.00! - I wonder if there are 4,000 decent 124s left in the world?)

I saw this car at Fairfield. very attractive, but it is not perfect by any means. It is listed in the Bonhams results as sold at $67,860.00 Brand new serial number tag, poor fitting windshield trim, and a missing bracket between the right rear inner fender and the engine support/rear body panel. I did not look underneath, as there was much more to delight the eye at the show. Great profit margin if the dealer sells it!
