TORRINO

Post by Special » Mon May 06, 2019 10:57 pm

Hi Everyone !!!
I'd like to share with you the story of my car.

It is the 1974 FIAT 124 Special TC
I bought this car in November of 2010 from a movie rental company.
So , it was a movie prop .
It is an original Californian car.
It was pretty much stock with no rust and missing drivers seat.

Nice! Great to see more sedans around. They're getting a little rare but have such a classic look. I'd offer a couple seat pieces but I suspect that recaro is more comfortable than the parts I have. Sorry you're stuck with the smog pump. Congrats on the great TC sedan tho! And welcome to Mirafiori :)

Huge , heavy bumpers were gone .
I replaced them with light aluminum ones from Lada Niva.
Carol Shelby rims with Sumitomo tires.
Few things were cleaned , I put clear side markers , instead of the amber ones.
Found some Hella foglights .
Got rid of the stupid license plate illumination .
Also new muffler was installed (I had to make a cutout to fit it in) and Torino badge was attached to the grill.

Interesting dash, did you make the whole thing yourself? Also, where did you get that harness bar?

The dash is straight outta Russia. I got one of those for my 74 Sedan, not sure if I’m going to use it, but it seems to nicely accommodate 124 Sport gauges
