Fiat 850 Coupé Sport.

The Fiat 850 Sport was in production in the mid 60's till the early 70's. Not specially a rare car, but a funny one despite its modest power ( 47 or 52 HP ), and its limited speed ( 145 Km / h ). 

But it was not a heavy car, and it was pleasant to drive or to be driven in it... I have fond memories of a Paris / Dubrovnik trip with that car when I was 7 or 8 years old.

Not bad in red, either. 

Finding a good one, I mean in good condition is not an easy task. As very often, cars from that era are victims of rust.

My grandmother used to take us from Rome to the Alps on her 500 but I have no clear memories of those adventure trips. After that, she bought a red Panda, such a huge car! Since then, everything changed. Strangely enough, the pater familiae used to drive ...

I spent some time with the Abarth OT 1000 version of that car. Delightful in its own way (on the track) but I think the standard 850 would have been easier to live with! Rust, as always was the issue. I had a friend in High School who had the 850 Spider a... 

Very nice! [nt]
