15k: Batman's Truffle: 1975 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe CC

Today's first feature comes in the form of a seller submission from Batman.  Seriously.  Not joking.  The first part of the seller's last name is Batman and in our mind he fights crime by day and plays a millionaire debutante by night. This Batman doesn't drive some Hollywood CGI-enhanced custom based on a Chevy Impala chassis, he drives a Fiat.  Find this 1975 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe CC for $14,500 in Washington, D.C. via craigslist. Seller submission from Batman.


The 124 Sport Coupe was a 2-door three-box styled classic (with the nickname "Tartufo," Italian for truffle) from Fiat designed by the same guy who penned the Ferrari 250GT, Fiat 600 and Simca 1000.  The final iteration of the Sport Coupe was the CC version that included revised front/rear styling and a bigger engine.  The 4-cylinder all-alloy powerplant puts out 100 horsepower via a 5-speed manual gearbox into the rear end.


This 124 includes a set of fat fender flares,15 inch Panasport wheels and a multi-stage paint job that looks nice in the photos. The seller has written a very descriptive ad listing all work done by himself and the previous owner...check it out!

  1. The fender flares and front spoiler ruin the lines IMHO

  2. Needs A LOT more photos. DETAILED photos. Seller is wants nearly 15 large for a Fiat 124 (!), and only posts 4 distant exterior photos?!? For that kind of asking, seller needs to emulate the Supra listing on DT a few days ago.

    While I like the Fiat 124 sport coupe (I know, I'm a little strange), there are very few appealing embellishments here. Built to taste - just not my taste, perhaps.

  3. this is actually really bad ass, too much for me though. I wouldn't buy a non-dino old fiat for a price like that.
