This funny Fiat 850 Spider is said to be a barn find, actually it seems everything but a barn find.
Indeed these cars, quite rare in the US and especially the US model like this one, are deeply prone to rust even if they have been well cared during their life: the poor quality of the steel used in that period (the Alfa’s of the same period suffer as well of the same problem) make difficult to find solid, unrestored specimens.
This car is said to have been just cleaned up and to have a pretty good paint and a good soft top. The photos show actually also a very good and original interior as well as a quite clean engine bay. These are reliable cars and easy to service: sure you’re not going to burn out your rear tires but in the proper climate you will love this little Spider.
