FIAT 124 COUPE
Cogged-belt dohc engine and servo'd discs all-round; on first series, 5-speed 'box optional on all but earliest cars. Rear seat useable if uncomfortable, handles a treat, but you're lucky if you get 25mpg. Quad headlamps and additional 1600cc version from 1969, and 5-speed standard but the handling is now softer. Hamfisted restyle and 1800cc engine for 1973. Rust a nightmare.
