Fiat 131

Known as the Mirafiori in the UK after the factory it was built in, this conventional rear-drive saloon is best considered as an Italian alternative to the Ford Cortina and Morris Marina.  Styling was pretty unadventurous then but perky single and twin-cam engines added much needed character and it was good to drive, and there was rallying success too with the rorty 131 Abarth. They are very rare now with corrosion and general unreliability a factor even when new, but it’s an interesting classic choice.
