We came across this mildly customized 1980 Fiat Spider listed on Craigslist in July 2019 in Horsham, Pennsylvania where the owner of the past twenty years currently is asking $8,800 for it. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the seller currently has is Spider priced halfway between the #4 “Fair” level of $5,600 and the #3 “Good” value of $12,400.
We love the color and tasteful removal of the bumpers on this example as well as the addition of period-correct Mini-lite wheels. These Fiat Spiders are an often overlooked yet economical alternative to Alfa Romeos when buying an entry-level Italian classic. Good luck with the purchase!
