1974 FIAT 124 Spider
The outward appearance of the 1974 models were the same as the previous year, except the California and Maryland versions had large rubber blocks instead of overriders, making for a somewhat unusual look. The European models retained the same bumpers as before. The 1974 US model was the first one to use the 1766cc engine and include a host of new exhaust emissions equipment, such as exhaust gas recirculation and air injection. Still, the 1974 US model Spider had a fairly large carburetor (Weber 34DMSA) and a twin downpipe exhaust, so it made fairly good power and torque. These models were designated as ‘CS1’.
