Hemmings Find of the Day – 1973 Fiat 130

Published in

Pininfarina-designed, Lampredi-engined 1973 Fiat 130 for sale on From the seller’s description:

The 1973 Fiat 130 Pininfarina coupe is loaded with luxury features such as real wood trims, courtesy lights everywhere, rear shades, adjustable steering, power windows, ZF power steering and dual horns. There is even a lever for the driver to open the passenger door remotely! Most 130 had automatic transmission; this car has the rare ZF 5-speed gearbox. This was the same gearbox used on the 2.4 liter Dinos. Also, most 130 had velour interior, this car has the optional leather interior, which is in excellent condition. Beautiful wood Nardi wheel and modern MP3 radio.This car also has the optional factory-installed air conditioner, which works and blows cold.

This car is in overall very good condition. The body is straight and rust-free, with no signs of prior accident. The dark blue paint is very nice and presents itself well. The deep red interior is luxurious and lovely, especially considering the age of the car. Mechanically the engine has very good compression with 155 psi across all cylinders. The clutch was replaced not long ago. Car runs, brakes, and steers as it should.

The Fiat 130 is a really good driving car and feels more like a sports car than a full size coupe. The engine is very peppy and the 5-speed gearbox has short throws. With power steering and independent suspension, it handles sports-like. In fact, the gearbox and suspension use many of the same components as the very sporty Fiat Dino. The V-6 Dino engine was also designed by Lampredi and is a close cousin to the 130 engine.

This is a very exclusive and rare car in remarkably good condition.
