Fiat Dino Coupe and Spider (1967 – 1973) Review

Fiat Dino Coupe and Spider (1967 – 1973) At A Glance


+Wonderful engine, great styling, terrific soundtrack and excellent to drive, early models have an all-alloy engine, good parts and specialist support

-Fragility of earlier 2.0-litre cars

The Fiat Dino Coupe is aa typically elegant late-1960s Bertone styled masterpiece, built by Fiat, and with the added advantage of being powered by a Ferrari engine. Don't think that a Fiat Dino will be too temperamental, though - it's tough mechanically, and is a known quantity in the specialist industry.

The 2000 and 2400 coupe bodies look identical at first sight, but changes in grille, badge and vent arrangements mean that only the bootlid is a straight swap between cars. 

The star of the Fiat Dino range, predictably, was the Spider. It was styled beautifully by Pininfarina (as opposed to Bertone for the Coupe) and used the same engines. In 1969, the 2.0-litre quad-cam Ferrari Dino V6 was upgraded to 2.4-litres in both Fiats, and a tougher ZF five-speed gearbox and the independent rear suspension shared with the 130 saloon were added. The iron-block 2.4-litre V6 was worth another 15bhp. The 2400 was assembled at the Ferrari factory, and mechanical and body parts still in good supply.

Ask Honest John

What would a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder be worth?

"I have a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder. How much is it worth and what is the best way of selling it please?"
This is a proper collector's car and the very best examples can be worth upwards of £100,000, but it does depend on condition and provenance. A good place to start would be to approach one of the specialist auction companies such as Historics, Bonhams or Car&Classic.
