1972 Fiat 850 Sport Spider

The Fiat 850 line, introduced for 1964, included a two door sedan, van, beautiful fastback coupe, and the spider shown here. Introduced along with the coupe in 1965, the Spider was never the best looking sports car, especially compared to its coupe stablemate. 1968's refresh brought a 3-HP bump in power, from 49 HP to 52. Though the Spider's bug-eye look, more obvious after the 1968 restyle, may have looked awkward at the time, today it brings a certain charm to the car, sort of a modern Frogeye Sprite.
