Car description

History of Fiat 1200
Fiat introduced their successor to the 1100 at the 1957 Turing Motor Show. The 1200 was available in Granluce sedan and open Cabriolet or Spider form, with a Turismo Veloce (meaning fast touring) sedan available as well. The design of the Spider was made byPininfarina and influenced by Fabio Luigi Rapi, Fiat's design director. The 1200 saloon was closely resembled the Fiat 1100. Power was from a new engine of 1221cc form developing 55 horsepower.
The convertible was restyled in 1959 and given a new Pininfarina-designed body, with similarities to Ferrari's 250 GT PF coupes, especially when it wore the optional hardtop. The 1200 had roll-up windows and swiveling seats as standard, and a new split mesh-patterned grille that incorporated angled sides. The 1200 Spider (Cabriolet) was built by Fiat's Vetture Speciali (meaning special cars) unit.
The 1200 Spider proved to be rather popular, especially in the American sports-car market. In 1960, it was given a boost of power, with the 1221cc engine reaching 63 horsepower. Production of the Spider continued with few changes through March 1963, when it was succeeded by the 1500.

About this Car
This car is real head-turner!!!It gets more attention than any celibrity you´ve ever seen!!This 1961 Fiat 1200 Cabriolet has been given a restoration and finished in red withblack and redvynil interiors and black canvas top. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
This car features adjustable bucket seats trimmed (like the dash-top) in imitation leather, a floor shifter for the four-speed manual, roll-up door windows with fixed quarters and a folding soft top.. The practical and commodious trunk hides the spare tire under the floor.
This Fiat 1200 counts with independent front suspension--which combines wishbones, coil springs and tube shocks--and solid rear axle, suspended by leaf springs and damped by tube shocks. Powering the 1200 Cabrioletis an overhead-valve 1,221cc four-cylinder engine that sports a 72 x 75mm bore and stroke, 8.25:1 compression and a two-barrel Weber 36DCD downdraft carburetor;which makesup for 55hpand enough to push thecar close to 90 MPH.
Car runs great, has new tires with white Portawalls (Not White Faced Tires), new headlights and recent oil change.
Disclosures: Even though the car is fully functional and in excellent mechanical condition, there´s a few things that need attention as expected with any classical car.All parts can easily be found through * Trunk lock doesn´t work andneeds to be replaced* Fuel tank sending unit needs to be replaced* Headlights ignition switch need to be replaced. Already bought and it´s included with car. Just needs to be installed* Tires are brand new and are NOT white face wall. Portawalls are installed on tires which makes them appear as white faced tires. One tire is missing installation and additional portawall is included with car.* The front and rear chromed bumpers have some rust on them. Re-chroming them should make them look as good as new.* Soft rooftop has a small patch covering a minor scratch due to wear and tear.*Horn doesn´t work
