1974 Fiat 128SL Coupe

Just a quick post today...

I just wanted to point this car out because there are so few left in North America.

The 128SL was based on a shortened 128 sedan platform. The suspension and brakes were slightly different than the sedan's.

The body was, to my eyes, subtly beautiful.

This car has had some work done to it. The seller calls the engine a "built performance motor." New parts include a cam. pistons, headers and a Weber 40 DCNF carb.

The body is described as being a "straight rust free body." It needs paint. Originally orange, someone spray painted it the blueish / greenish color you see now. I kind of like the current color, but if I were to buy it, I'd restore to its original orange.

Someone needs to buy this car and restore it. Cars like these are getting harder and harder to find. The seller is asking $2950.00 for it.

Located in Seattle, WA, click here to see the Craigslist ad.

My dad traded in his wonderful 1969 Fiat 124 Coupe in 1974 when I was 9. He went got a 128 sedan but I tried with all my heart to get him to buy the 128 SL as I thought it was gorgeous. Still think it’s one hot little car....
