Red paint adorns the exterior surfaces and while there are some slight faults and evidence of repairs and a few suspect areas with rust bubbling under the bright paint. Overall this car presents well with a good retained shine. All exterior chrome, including the front and rear bumpers, and lighting are in good condition, as well as the slightly faded black convertible top, which is very simple to put up and down. It also sports a clear plastic rear window. Pininfarina was a master at utilizing lines that contradicted themselves to create interest. In the back of the car, is a study in that design concept. A simple trunk lid, framed by slight fins with their bright spear atop leading back to cathedral style tail lighting is an excellent example of this theory in practice. Seen on the corners are slotted steel wheels with simple Fiat caps and older blackwall rubber.

The interior features black and red vinyl bucket seats, red pile carpeting, and a black steel topped dash framing a red steel dashboard. The seats are a low back bomber style and show almost no wrinkling or wear with smooth black bolsters, red tuck and roll inserts, and black piping. There is also a small storage area behind the seats that is still accessible when the soft top is lowered. Twin chrome bezel rings surround the dual instrument pods with black face gauges all within the red dash. An aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette stereo is mounted into the dash and just below is a black steel. Partially hidden underneath the dash are the toggles and pulls for the heater and defroster. Deep pile red carpeting floods the floors and remains clean.

A 1221cc inline 4-cylinder powers this sports car and produces approximately 58hp. 4 speeds for the manual transmission allows the driver to experience the melodious tune of the exhaust as they go through the gears, that is quintessential Fiat 4-cylinder. 4.30 gears for the rear axle setup, and all is corrosion free and looking excellent under the hood. Along with the rebuilt engine we note a new water pump, belts, starter and a rebuilt carburetor.

Slight surface rust on the untreated components but otherwise plenty of patina and undercoating on the unibody construction which is structurally solid. Independent coil springs for the front suspension with all new components, and leaf springs for the back with new shocks work to help you sling this sports car through the curves. Drum brakes are noted all around with a new master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders. A new stock style exhaust is also noted underneath and we note a cleaned and painted fuel tank with a new float and sending unit.
