The Fiat 1200 was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in November 1957 and is prized by collectors for its cuteness. The 1200 Fiat, or Granluce Fiat 1200, was intended to replace the Fiat 1100-103 TV – Turismo Veloce. The 1200 was equipped with a new engine of 1,221cc, developing 55 PS (40 kW). The 1200 saloon/berlina was based on the Fiat 1100 which visually it closely resembled.
At the same time, Fiat introduced the cabriolet version called ‘Trasformabile’, the natural successor to the Fiat 1100-103 Trasformabile, using the same engine.
The 1200 Trasformabile was replaced in 1959 by the Pininfarina designed Fiat 1200 Cabriolet. In November 1959, this also became available with an O.S.C.A. built twin cam engine of 1,491cc, developing 80 PS (59 kW). This model is called the Fiat 1500 S Cabriolet. In 1962 this engine was replaced with an O.S.C.A. 1,568cc twin cam four with 90 PS (66 kW) (100hp gross). This body continued to be built even as the 1200 was replaced by the 1300 and 1500 – albeit with a modified front end.
This lovely 1962 Fiat 1200 Cabriolet is in rare perfect condition and it is immediately ready to accompany you over the beautiful summer season.
