  1. Fiat 130 Coupé designed by Pininfarina at the beginning of the seventies ( 1971 ). It's the brother of our french Peugeot 504 Coupé designed at the same period . A great car as the sedan version ( Fiat 130 Opera ) and Fiat 130 Shooting brake ( Maremma ) showed in 1973 or 1974 . This car was powered by a V6 engine with 3235 cm3 and 165 HP.
    A great car .

  2. A Fiat 130 Coupe', designed by Pininfarina. A beautiful car, designed in the early 70's and "killed" (along with the more popular sedan version) by the oil crisis in 1973/74. Those were times when Germans were not the only owners of the "big cars" segment.

  3. A Pininfarina designed FIAT 130 Coupé. 4600 were made between 1971 and 1975. One of my favourite FIATs which I only saw one until now, in a classics car fair in Lisbon few years ago.

  4. that's the absolutely gorgeous Fiat 130 coupe by Pininfarina. this car knocked my socks off when i first saw a photo of it in Road & Track in the early '70s. it's proven to be completely timeless. i've never been lucky enough to see one in person, but it definitely influenced the way i drew cars, and the way i create my photoshopped cars today. Pininfarina tried to extend the Coupe's styling to the 4 door and i believe a sport wagon, but Fiat wouldn't go for it.

  5. Slightly trickier than your last few if only because Pininfarina sold basically the same coupe design in the 1970s to Fiat, Lancia, Peugeot, Ferrari, and even Rolls Royce.
    The car pictured is a Fiat 130 Coupe but swap the grille and it could easily have been a Gamma, 504, 412, or Camargue.

  6. Looks like a Ford Cortina to me–late '70s or early '80s.

    If that's what it is, I'm a very smart ducky, right?
    In any case, I will quack repeatedly:

    QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!
