1973 Fiat 850 Sport Spider – 43,005 Miles – Collector Owned – None Better This beautiful 1973 850 Sport Spider is part of a 60+ car private collection in Austin, Texas. I acquired this 850 in August of of 2011 from a dealer in California who had the car under consignment from its third owner. Under my care, the car has been stored at my private facility and serviced by my staff who maintain all the cars in my collection. When I acquired the car, it had traveled 42,822 miles in it’s 30+ years. Having been driven an additional 185 miles since then, the mileage today is 43,005. 1973 was the final year of production for the 850 and the Sport Spiders of that year are considered the best of the breed benefiting from multiple improvements made to the platform over the years including the more powerful, 903cc engine. This particular 850 was purchased new by it’s original owner from European Motor Service in Tacoma, WA on November 3, 1973. Interestingly, both the original warranty/service book as well as the original title application (both included with the car) make note of the fact that the car was purchased after being a dealer demonstration vehicle which helps explain the car’s striking and rare black/red color combination.
