I just heard at Mirafiori, my friend Jim from Virginia helped a buddy travel to North Carolina and bring home this 1970 FIAT 124 Sport Coupe.  I don't have the link from the Craigslist ad, but the car was the quintessential "barn find" - its secnd owner drove it until 1987 and parked it in a warehouse on his property.  Then, 21 years later, having not run in the interim, sporting only 145K miles, no rust and most of the dust collected during that time, it resurfaced for sale.  It's new owner, Dave in VA should be very proud.   70124SportCoupe003.jpgAs I understand it, the car is stock/original with the original 1438cc twin cam, but does have aftermarket wheels and Ansa exhaust.  All of 124 Coupe folks will bill be watching eagerly to see this one back action.  It's great to hear these stories of good saves...contrats, Dave!

71_CL_Coupe_1.jpgI just found this '71 Coupe for sale in Washington.  The seller does not list the mileage, but says it is all original and lately has only been driven 100 miles a year.  It was repainted 15 years ago and as best I can see on Craigslist images, it looks shiny.  If you are looking for a complete, original, solid Coupe, this appears to be one.  This is certainly one to watch.   You can see it now on craigslist

UPDATE:  Now you can see this on Ebay (with a few more pictures & details) at 270246400661

There's another A-series Coupe listed on Ebay now - for $12,500 /best offer.   This is a west coast car that by all accounts appears and sounds to be in great shape.   This one was pretty well known among the FIAT community and most recently went into ownership by the seller, who invested a good bit to apparently take it from 'very good' to 'great' shape cosmetically & mechanically.   This is one to keep an eye on!
