1972 Fiat 130B 3200 Berlina

Please note - the boot of the vehicle does close, it was left open slightly when images were taken

Highlights

  • Upgraded 130B model with standard interior similar to the coupé version
  • Belonged to one family since new
  • Very low mileage
  • Extremely original car
  • Even has the factory protective film on the rear doors
  • Lampredi 3.2-litre V6 engine with 165 hp, double overhead camshaft
  • Recently serviced with replacement of timing belt and brake discs

The Appeal

The 130's understated three-box design discreetly concealed its great qualities. Luxuriously equipped and fitted with the V6 Lampredi engine with double overhead camshaft worthy of a sports car, delivering 165 hp, this large executive saloon is one of the most prestigious models in Fiat's history.

Almost certainly, none of the few surviving examples compare to this one. It has been owned by the same family since its inception and shows exceptionally low mileage. The condition is extremely original, right down to the factory-applied plastic protective film that still covers the rear doors.

Enthusiasts will also note that this is the much improved 'B' model, with the dashboard and interior of the Coupé and the upgraded 3.2-litre V6 engine with 165 hp designed by Lampredi.

The car is offered for sale after receiving a new timing belt and service. The brake discs and battery were also replaced.

For fans of prestigious 1970s saloons, this is a rare and perhaps unrepeatable opportunity.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
