1967 Fiat 850 Coupe
This 1967 Fiat 850 Coupe is a characterful classic with a tidy light blue specification, and has been restored throughout its life. It’s powered by a naturally-aspirated 843cc four-cylinder engine which outputs 35kW (47hp) to the rear wheels. The transmission in this car is a four-speed manual gearbox. The odometer currently shows 75,3177km.
Following the success of the Fiat 600, the Italian manufacturer created a new class of vehicle called the 850. Available in five body styles which shared core technical underpinnings, the 850 range charmed customers with its friendly face and its short rear end which is where the engine sits. The Fiat 850 Coupe was introduced a year into the production cycle at the 1965 Geneva Motor Show and debuted more power out of the small engine and a top speed of 135km/h. It also received sports seats, disc brakes for the front wheels, a sports steering wheel, and a round speedometer. In period the 850 was called one of the handsomest, well-rounded designs ever seen on a small car. This explains why Fiat sold 2.3 million 850 models worldwide.
This car is painted with a light blue exterior and features black upholstery inside the cabin. As was popular for the time, the exterior is highlighted by chrome trim and the interior gets a woodgrain dash insert. This example features body-coloured floor mats. No obvious modifications take away from the car’s original specification. The car still displays with Italian number plates, stickers, and badging. It rides on a set of 13-inch chrome-capped steel wheels wrapped in Firestone tyres.
Built new in Italy, this car has passed through four owners since new. The seller has owned the vehicle as part of a collection for the last six years and has driven it sparingly in that time. The servicing has been completed in-house during the seller’s ownership, though the car has been restored at some point in its life. There are no known mechanical faults.
On the outside this Fiat 850 Coupe presents well for its age. The blue paintwork retains a shiny gloss and no points of scratching are seen. The bodywork appears straight without dents or mismatching panels. Some elements of patina are seen on the chrome trim and door handles, such as light scratching and peppering marks. Some paint is beginning to bubble on the panel behind the front wheel. All four wheels show in good condition without kerb rash and the tyres retain a good level of tread.
Inside the cabin this Fiat’s vinyl seating displays without significant wear and tear. Elements of the dash and door cards show in good order, while the floor mats have ensured the floor remains in good condition. Dials and instruments function as normal, while no stains or tears are seen in the headlining.
