1972 FIAT 124 Spider
The 1972 FIAT 124 Spider was nearly identical to the 1971 model. It retained the 1608cc engine which many regard as the best version of the FIAT twin-cam engine. These Spiders are desirable today because they retain the classic look of the original design while sporting the larger 1608 engine.
The 1972 124 Spider was still the ‘B’ series, so its VIN started with ‘124BS’. The ‘124’ was the family of automobiles, ‘B’ stood for the second version, and ‘S’ meant Spider.
Toward the end of the model year the 1972 124 Spiders started to get some of the cosmetic changes of the next model year. The taillights were changed to the 3-lens type that was used for the next 5 years, and very late during the production run the bumpers were changed to the type that mounts to the body via rubber blocks.
