This technologically immaculate limousine from Fiat comes to us second-hand and can boast with only 24,000 km mileage. The vehicle was first bought in 1971 by Mrs Lidia Improta at the official Fiat dealer in Naples and was registered to her in April of 1971 in the same city. Mrs Lidia Improta was born in September of 1929 and, from the very beginning of her work life, served as sole private housekeeper to a noble famly, who, in recognition of her many loyal years of service, gave the Fiat 128 to her as a present, as a private vehicle. Since her private apartment was situated in the building next door to the family’s, she rarely used the Fiat and kept it until her passing in 2007. Mr Antonio Maschile, a close relative, took over the vehicle and had it registered to himself in 2008. Besides the the consistently verifiable history of the vehicle, all descriptive papers are available as well as the original keys.
The Fiat 128 was the first private vehicle featuring front-wheel drive under the Fiat brand and was considered upper middle class. From a technical perspective, everything about the Fiat 128 was novel: the engine, the front and rear axle suspension, the new steering and the crumple zones. The arrangement of the seats and the tank were the result of highly elaborate security research performed at Fiat since the 60s. The handling in turns and the overall stability remain remarkably good to this day. Providing its part in this regard is the wheelbase, 10 centimetres longer compared to the Fiat 1100. One last piece of interesting trivia is the fact that the Fiat 128 limousine model was a favorite among the Italian mafia and was high in demand among its members. The vehicle simply offered a lot of space and extraordinarily comfortable seats.
