Excellent drivetrain, petite styling, a great drive
Corrosion was off the scale bad - leading to low survival rate

Introduction

The Fiat 124 Sport Coupe was a very elegant four-seater that the Italians seemingly did better than everyone else. It was a thin-pillared beauty from Fiat’s own design team, blessed with real ability thanks to powerful twin-cam engines and all-wheel disc brakes.

The Sport Coupe was developed costantly during its life - the original 1967-'69 ‘AC’-series cars, which were considered the prettiest by enthusiasts with its single headlamps and lower bonnet line, are the most desirable, as they're lighter and handle better. The second-generation 'BC'-series cars that arrived in 1970 with softer suspension and twin headlamps were more comfortable to live with; and the 1974-75 final ‘CC’-models are also snapped up by collectors, as their 1800cc engine is the most powerful offered. Sadly all 124 Coupés suffered badly from the typical Italian corrosion issue.
