Fiat 850 Coupe e Spider.-Catarsi,G. Nada publ.2004, 96 pages with 50 colour & 160 b/w. photo's. Italian text, Softbound,. 24x27cm. Series The Cars that made history.--
The now classic book series The Cars that Made History is enriched with another new title, this time devoted to the Fiat 850 coupé and roadster. Both cars made their debut at the 1965 Geneva Motor Show, where they created a great deal of public interest in their design: the coupé sober and essential, the roadster sporting and elegant, built at Carrozzeria Bertone to a Giorgetto Giugiaro design. The low prices the Turin manufacturer established made these mid-Sixties' newcomers even more appealing. With a simple but rigorously accurate text and invaluable archive material, this book covers the industrial, technical and sports history of both models, series after series. It also offers a complete guide to restoring the coupé and roadster plus, naturally, a full list of all chassis numbers.
