Ferrari look: 1964 Fiat 1500 GT by Ghia

Update, november 4: The car has been relisted here with better photos and a price lowered to €20,000 (today $27,000). We are astonished by the fact that this beautiful special Fiat is still for sale.

Update, february 24: The seller advertised this car also here, lowering the asking price to €22,000 (today $29,000). Thanks to dutch reader Frans for this update.

This car was born when the great coachbuilders era began to set down. It was designed by Ghia coachworks on Fiat 1500 chassis and engine (type 115.000), this one’s rated around 80 h.p. Actually few cars were built on that basis (especially if you compare it to tens of cars built on the Fiat 1100-103 chassis and mechanical) but they had enough power and stance to seem something more than a toy. This coachbuilt Fiat features an aggressive look, especially on the front, and a great care in constructive details: that was typical of Ghia.

This particular car shows a beautiful BRG-like green and a very correct and solid overall look. The great advantage of these cars is about the mechanical spare parts availability: Fiat was a big producer and so most mechanical parts are in common with many other models.

Interiors seem almost perfect and beautifully designed. If you see this photo only, it would be easy to think that such cockpit belongs to an higher class, more expensive car. Be sure that all the trims are in place as they’re made of unobtanium. Find it for sale at €25,000 (today $33,500) or near offer here in Messina, Italy.

    These are nice and this one looks to be in great condition. Body parts are difficult to source so you want to buy them complete. Still, $27k is a bit much for these. They are great for $15k, but this is no Alfa GTV.

    Not indeed, it’s not a GTV but it’s 100 times scarcer: rarity gets (not always) a premium on price and this is one of those cars…
