This Fiat 124 CS Spider - Chassis No: 124CS1-0141606 was supplied new by Fiat dealer Brea Sports Cars Incorporated of Brea, Orange County, California, USA and delivered to its first lady owner a Miss Jill Elkim of Tarzana, Los Angeles, California and registered on 6th October 1978.

It is finished in its original colour scheme of Light Metallic Blue with Beige vinyl trim, Beige Soft Top, 1756cc Twin Cam engine, 5 Speed Manual Gearbox and sitting on its original steel wheels with Chrome hub caps. It also has its original Fiat Service book and Drivers Handbook.

The car was remained in her ownership until early 1990 when it was sold and imported to the UK and registered here on 17th August 1990 and the mileage covered at that time was 84,397 Miles. It was sold by Fiat 124 specialist DTR Sportscars to its first owner in Barnes, London on 28th August and he kept the car for 8 years before it was sold to the current owner who has owned the car for 22 years!

The car was regularly serviced by DTR until 2008 but it was hardly used from 2009 through to 2014 and was then put in storage until last year. Between 2008 and 2019 it has only covered just over 2,000 miles and it has now covered 120,399 miles from new.

There are some paint blemishes and the odd tiny dent on the bodywork, but it is certainly not a rusty car and the underside is totally rust free with all original floors
and sills as you might expect from a Californian car. The trim is a bit tired and the drivers seat has split and the vinyl hood is serviceable but ideally requires a new one. Mechanically it seems to be excellent and it drives really well.

We are just in the process of preparing the car for sale and carrying out various remedial works and it should be ready to view/test drive very shortly. Upon sale the car will come with a new MOT, pre-sales service and our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty. It is of course MOT and Road Tax exempt.

A full set of photographs will follow as will the asking price!
