The Fiat 124 Sport Spider was manufactured from 1966 to 1985, making it one of the most successful Italian sports cars of all time. In total nearly 200,000 examples were produced. Part of the cars success could be attributed to the fact the simple yet attractive design was styled and constructed by Pininfarina.

The main market for the Fiat 124 Spider was North America. During its long lifespan the 124 Spider underwent many drivetrain upgrades. In 1969 the engine size grew to from 1.4 litres to 1.6 litres, then in 1972 a 1.8 litre appeared and the 1.6 litre version became the base model. By 1979 a 2.0 litre engine became standard fitment. The most powerful Fiat 124 Sport Spider was equipped with a 135 horsepower, supercharged 2.0 litre engine before production ceased in 1985.

Like many small roadsters of the time, the styling of the 124 Spider was affected to the new rulings in the United States regarding safety bumpers, and in the mid 1970's the appearance was slightly spoiled by the larger rubber bumpers which were tacked on. Although the 124 Spider got off lightly compared to the MGB!
