If you decide to seek out a more modest classic car, your options are nearly limitless. There’s something for everyone, and those with creativity, time, and a bit of money will easily find joy on the fringes of the market. Take the Fiat 124 Sport Coupé, for instance.
We captured this later production 1972 example, with a Lampredi-designed 1,756-cc 4-cylinder engine, hotter Colombi cams, high compression pistons, and ported cylinder heads. Brakes and electrics were uprated, and the only external update made were the addition of wheels from a 1982 Maserati Biturbo. After all, the design by Mauro Boano is still timeless today.
This car blends in perfectly with the Sardinian scenery. It’s almost enough to wonder what the 124 Sport Coupé would look like on an early morning drive down the PCH.
