Faccina Sorridente: 1972 Fiat Spider 850 Sport

I never like buying cars that don’t run — it ends up being WAYYYY more of a project than expected, that busted engine turns out to be connected to a busted transmission which puts power to a busted rear-end which is equipped with busted brakes– I much prefer to get a car that looks terrible but runs/drives because you find out so much more about the car…but there are times when the asking price is low enough to be worth the risk. Find this 1972 Fiat Spider 850 Sport offered for $2500 in Grants Pass, OR via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
