A day brought to you by Fiat.
Usually the 125 was a conventional enough three box design, like so:
But not always. This was still a time when the independent coachbuilder could build a small run of rebodied cars and still make money.
So meet the Samantha, by Vignale, a name subsequently bought by Ford for attaching to upmarket Mondeos and the like. They only made 100, mainly because they were twice the price of a standard 125. In case you’re wondering, the headlights tilt up when lit.
But there were more.
Moretti did a few
As did Michelotti
And Bertone. Looks remarkably like the Volvo 340 from the rear side.
And Savio. No, me neither.
