History and Restoration

Presenting the timeless elegance of the 1961 Fiat 1200 Cabriolet Tipo 118G, meticulously restored to its former glory. A true automotive gem, this Pininfarina-designed classic was a rarity in its heyday and remains a sought-after collector’s piece today. Offering a blend of Italian artistry and engineering finesse, this exquisite Fiat 1200 has been lovingly restored.

Originally hailing from the illustrious stables of Italy’s Fiat, this 1961 beauty embarked on a remarkable journey of restoration in 2005 when it was discovered in a forlorn state and acquired through an E-bay purchase by Fm Weidlich in Germany. Placed in their long-term restoration programme, the car underwent a meticulous, stage-by-stage rejuvenation, leaving no detail overlooked. A comprehensive restoration file, complete with scores of documented images, attests to the painstaking efforts that went into reviving this automotive masterpiece.

After emerging from its transformation, it was registered in Germany in March 2014 and later found a loving home with its second German owner in July 2016. Throughout its seven-year tenure, the fastidious owner continuously improved and cherished the car and would argue that this is now the very best available. This Fiat 1200 Cabriolet Tipo 118G represents a remarkable blend of history and restoration, showcasing the enduring allure of a classic piece of automotive craftsmanship.


Feast your eyes on the captivating exterior of this Pininfarina-designed Fiat 1200 Cabriolet. Cloaked in the resplendent Maserati Mezzanotte blue, the result of a meticulous body-off restoration, this classic radiates sophistication. The curvaceous silhouette, accentuated by its distinctive bulging bonnet, commands attention at every turn. Gleaming chrome bumpers, over-riders, and side body trim, immaculately restored, elegantly complement the striking blue paintwork. On those rare occasions when the weather calls for it, the tight and functional mohair roof system envelops the cabin in a snug embrace. But with a beauty like this, why would one ever want to conceal it?


Step into a time capsule of automotive luxury and refinement with the evocative interior of this Fiat 1200 Cabriolet. Embracing passengers in an exquisite blend of ‘Maserati Cream/black’ two-tone leather upholstery, the cabin exudes an ambiance of grandeur and sophistication. The attention to detail is evident in the abundant chrome accents that transport you to an era of timeless style. The 15″ three-spoke Fiat Emblem steering wheel, offers a delightful driving experience with light and accurate steering at all speeds. The tastefully designed switchgear and beautiful chrome fascia, fully functional, showcase the perfect marriage of form and function. To complement the classic essence with a touch of modern convenience, a timeless-styled radio has been thoughtfully integrated for smartphone capability, preserving the essence of Italian flair while catering to contemporary needs.

History File and Invoices

Engine & Transmission

Under the bonnet lies a spirited heart – a four-cylinder, 1221cc engine, boasting 52ps (38 KW) of lively performance. Promptly igniting at the turn of the key, this gem delivers a melodious note that belies its engine size, promising a driving experience that delights the senses. The original four-speed all-synchro gearbox, with its characteristic longer-style gate change, adds to the authentic vintage driving pleasure. Testament to the dedication of its second German owner, the car has been meticulously maintained, with numerous documented invoices attesting to the continuous investment and improvements made over the years. From a technical stand point, this is as good as it gets, with thousands spent on achieving the very best from this robust little car.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes

Completing the allure of this classic Fiat are its immaculate pressed steel wheels, still adorned with the original chrome hubcaps, showcasing the iconic Fiat detailing. Wrapped in quality Barum Brillantis 175/70 R14 tyres, the wheels stand ready to grace the open road with style and stability. The braking system, renewed entirely during the full restoration process and complemented by recent documented improvements, offers ample stopping power befitting its era.
