Odd Targa: 1970 Moretti 128 S

It is the second time we come across this particular model, built in very few examples by Moretti, in the declining phase of its history.

We certainly don’t publish it for its beauty, but for its rarity and for what it represents: a last, heroic attempt to propose to the users a car based on a utilitarian, therefore economic to maintain, while giving an “exotic” look.

The car on which it is based is in fact the Fiat 128, not beautiful and not fast but definitely rock soid and very reliable; on this Moretti designed a sharp bodywork that had, however, the not inconsiderable characteristic of a “Targa” configuration: the roof is removable and gives this car a very special purpose. The seller says that the car is perfect and running and, in fact, it seems to be in excellent condition especially inside; the only thing we don’t understand are the bumpers which, in one photo, are chromed, while in the others they are black. Find it for sale at €19,000 (today $21,500) here in Roma, Italy.
