1981 Fiat spider 2000 "Originale/Basso"
1981 Roadster Salon Spider "Originale/Basso" Overview A very special offering by Roadster Salon. Followers of our company and restoration program know that we currently have an 18 month-2 year back log on most of our special order builds. This particular spider was restored by us to an original standard several years ago. The owner was transferred overseas, and made the car available to us. We jumped at the chance to bring it back home to the Roadster family. Upon arrival we carefully ...inspected the car, and found it to be virtually in the same condition as when it left here originally in 2015. The car also returned to our shop in 2017 for a few updates and normal service. It was well cared for and driven infrequently during its time with our customer. Since arriving last month, the spider went through our arduous re-certification process, with over 130 man hours of close inspection, updates and repairs. Please call to discuss what this process entailed. We can now offer this lovely car with our exclusive 1-year warranty. While lacking all the contemporary upgrades of our Lusso model, or the frame off finish work of our Avanzato, the car still offers tremendous value. The customer opted for nearly $10,000 in upgrades including a full leather interior in sumptuous burgundy, plus several engine performance improvements. Based on miles and upgrades, this spider would cost about $45K for us to reproduce at our current prices. Cosmetic Impressions The interior has Lusso level upgraded fit and finish, featuring new full leather upgrades which were completed recently. The interior is immaculate, and finished in a very luxurious wine color without any signs of wear. Just perfect! Exterior is clean and with no dings or significant scratches to mar its appearance. Car was repainted as part of our original restoration, and still looks very fresh several years later. Please call for complete list of upgrades. Mechanical and Driving Impressions Car is ready to roll. All mechanical checks and updates are complete. Although this car does not have the rack/pinion steering or brake upgrades found in our later models, it is still a responsive machine. Tidy handling with excellent road manners. Engine runs perfectly, reflecting our original rebuild. Very good fuel economy and reliability from fuel injected engine. High performance custom intake with other proprietary engine tweaks by famed engine builder Roberto D'Avola make the traditional driving experience even more entertaining. Dual exhaust gives it a sporty sound. Truly a turn-key experience. Don't miss this tremendous opportunity to buy a real Roadster Salon Spider at a special price!
