Based on the boxy Fiat 128 saloon but with more stylish, fastback styling, the 128 Coupe Sport offered sporty performance in a diminutive but practical package. Survivors are rare these days, with this one believed to be the only right‑hand drive 1300 SL in the UK. In oh‑so‑Seventies Positano Yellow, with black interior and 74bhp 1290cc engine, this Fiat has had five registered keepers. The fourth acquired the car in 1989, but after some engine problems, it was garaged in 1992 and didn't re‑emerge until 2009. After an engine rebuild, it was treated to a full body restoration, which was completed in April 2011, with the owner at the time stating that 'it was restored with a view to originality while keeping some of the patina'. A full account of what was done is in the history file, along with a selection of photos.  

Also in the history folder are the V5, owner's handbook, brochures, magazines, spare keys, show memorabilia and an extensive amount of invoices dating back to 2010, chronicling thousands spent over the past decade or so. There are also two copies of the useful but now unintentionally funny Fiat book of Safe Motoring Hints, with such pearls as not being insulted if a car 'of a class inferior to your own' passes you and how 'use of the horn and lights is not an insurance policy against accidents'. Along with a set of spare keys, there are also a 'loads of spare parts to go with the car'.

The exterior of the 128 Coupe is in excellent condition, while the interior has been left more untouched. Nevertheless, aside from a small bit of dash damage in one corner, it's also in very good order. The car runs and drives very well, with a nice rorty note from the exhaust to remind you that you're in something Italian and a bit racy.
