  2. Yes automotive gentrification is indeed occurring with the X1/9, 124 Spider and other desirable 70s/80s Fiat model of cars. This car needs nothing, it was a rust free example to start with, has had all preventative maintenance handled, etc. and is cosmetically excellent. Let the discussions commence. :)

    Did they stop using the leather-covered shift knob for '87? My '86 came with one (leather gone, of course).

    Curious, my 86 had a black plastic ball from the dealer.

    Good eyes. Not to criticize that great looking car, but yes, the shifter is not the 1987 original one.

    The foam in the OE shifter tends to distort over time. I have mine which is distended by the pressure from the O ring that goes around the outside of the part. It is a nice shifter handle.

    I have the black OE sphere on my cars as I prefer a smaller shift knob.

    That is one fine car.

    I saw this car today when I took mine (its twin) in for service. It looks just as beautiful in person as it does in the pictures. The new owner is lucky.
