my parents had 3 of these back 'in the old country'. one chrome bumper, one plastic bumper and one of the 'plus' models. pretty much Poland's most important car.

your's is immaculate. pretty sure ive never seen one that nice. if shipping wasnt 10x the cost of the car I would have imported one here too :/ ($200 car, $2000+ to ship to US)

good luck with the sale.

Glad it put a smile on your face...

I have been on vortex a long time and I know some of us like to voluntary submit our input and practice our valuation skills at will. No offense meant or taken - I don't think most people will understand what went into making this particular car possible, how rare it actually is both in history and this condition especially in the U.S. and that is quite alright. It's value is very subjective and I am sure to those not familiar with what it is and why it is something extremely unique the price is astronomical.
Yes but our economy is based on supply and demand. This car may be unique and very very clean but when a slim amount of demand is out there then prices like that are a little extreme.

Exactly why you are wrong. I have no desire to turn this into a debate but 17+ years of buying and selling cars has taught me one major economic lesson. You can never economize emotion in a sale.

I hope you understand what I mean. If not, plainly stated- If someone wants and can make it happen, it WILL happen.

haha my dad was a car dealer in Turkey and I remember that we had 15 - 20 of them at the same time. It was back in 1995 or so. Good old days :)

Yes but just let him try... The price is high that's for sure. But high for me and for you. If the right buyer is out there and looking for a car like this, I am pretty sure that they can agree on the price somehow. If not that's his decision to lower the price or not. That's my 2 cents.

Yea ive got no problem on what anyone sells anything for. Im sure someone out there might have a sentimental atatchment to the car and is willing to pay whatever anyone asks.

Thanks - car is painted Ginster yellow - giallo means yellow in Italian.
I know still not a correct paint for the year
ginster was used in the 80's
btw 2nd most popular ( by popular i mean wanted since u didnt have a say on what color you would get) next to fiat 125p Bahama yellow

also people commenting on the price
they are very few 70's fiats out there
this one apart for few period incorrect parts ( plastic mirrors and popout rear windows ) and the wrong color well not wrong just a bit better then the dull yellow they had in 76, is the most sorted 126 Ive ever seen

there is another one for sale in Poland same year for about half that but this one has all the paper work sorted and its here . 18k is not that far off

Now if that was 73 126p made with Italian parts the price would be double whats hes asking
