Back in the days before globalisation and ‘badge-engineering’ took over and resulted in the production of millions of homogenous and boring boxes on wheels, the Italian car industry held a unique place in the world. Italians demanded that their cars – including the most affordable ones – should possess a sporting soul, and hence even humble entry-level models felt like scaled-down Ferraris in the way they responded to the keen driver. The country’s biggest maker FIAT emerged from the 1960s with a brilliant reputation for the creation of exciting cars that were accessible to the masses, and this sustained it through until the ‘80s when the Turin-based brand began to lose its way. Examples of the wonderful and fun machines from these golden times are sadly very rare these days, and hence we are proud to present this gleaming little Orange ‘75 FIAT 127 in original condition with just 104,248km under its belt. The 127 ran from 1971 through to 1983, and was FIAT’s second model with the newly-fashionable and space-efficient front-wheel drive layout. It was launched to huge critical acclaim, winning the coveted European Car of the Year title in 1972 and becoming one of Europe’s top-selling models within a year. It was also noteworthy because it included several major advances in passive safety, most notably the incorporation of front and rear crumple zones and a deformable steering column. This car is a Series 1 (1971-1977), widely regarded as the most pure and attractive of the three iterations of the 127. It is powered by an inline 4-cylinder engine of 903cm3 and drives through a 4-speed manual transmission to the front wheels. It remains as delightful to drive as it was back in its day, and will thrill with period touches such as the Clarion push-button radio and sporty white-finish steel road wheels with chrome centre caps. This is a genuine Australian-delivered vehicle, it has been part of a collection for a long time and is only being sold due to down sizing. This irresistible 127 is ready to be enjoyed by someone who will appreciate its zest for driving and its extraordinary uniqueness.
