Dino face: 1967 Moretti 124S Coupé


Yes, it is clear to everyone (at least to many) that the front of this car is identical to that of the Fiat Dino Spider, produced in those years. Obviously this is not a Dino but a rare Moretti.


Since the early post-war years, Moretti, like many other coachbuilders of the time, was based on Fiat chassis and engines to build his cars as they were not too expensive and, at the same time, they were solid and reliable. Business was going very well in the 50s until the mid-60s when the era of great body shops began to set.


And this, of course, is one of the last testimonies of that era: Moretti built this coupe based on a Fiat 124 Sport chassis and then equipped with a double overhead camshaft engine of 1438 cc that produced 90 horsepower: now they seem like numbers low, but try to figure out, at the time, how many and which cars of the medium size category (aside from Alfa) could boast a double-overhead camshaft engine. This car in particular has been completely restored (and we see) at a cost of € 45k, and we did not have much to do with it. The colors are beautiful and, combined with the rarity, make this car a truly special piece. Find it for sale at €55,000 (today $63,000) here in Saint-Leu-la-Forêt, France.
