This 1975 Fiat 128 Wagon is in gorgeous Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and is listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2,500 or make an offer. This car has been parked inside in storage since 1985. This photo shows a similar car without the huge bumpers; I like it. No, I love it.
This is one unique body style! A Fiat 128 was almost my first car so I have a soft spot in my head, I mean in my heart, for these things. This car has a couple of dents in it as you can see, one in the passenger fender and one in the driver’s door. The seller says that “neither is creased or terrible and could be removed with paintless dent repair. has a few minor rust spots”, and overall it does look pretty good for being a 41-year old car. The 128 was the European Car of the Year in 1970 and it was a fairly advanced layout for the time, being a transverse-mounted engine with front wheel drive. I love the oddly-unique (is that redundant?) design of the three-door wagon, and this color only makes it even more desirable to me.
Other than the driver’s seat, she looks pretty nice, no? It looks nicer from this shot through the passenger door. Kudos to the seller for including the driver’s seat in a photo. The rear seat looks like it has never been used and the headliner also looks perfect. There are only two exterior photos of this car and no engine photos, but this is a 1.3L inline-four cylinder with about 65 hp. It should look similar to this one. It doesn’t look like the roomiest engine compartment on earth, it’s a good thing that Fiats never need engine work. I say, it’s a good thing that Fiats never need engine work (tough crowd..).. For a car that weighs just over a ton, 65 hp isn’t a terrible amount of power, especially with the 4-speed manual transmission. I love this car, are there any other Fiat 128 Wagon lovers out there?
