  1. Your comment: The normal version remained in its original form – “from my opinion the more beautiful appearance” – I agree with You 100 % . The best version ever is the red One Fiat 125 special of 1970 year

  2. Another story : While most of my friends were lucky to have discs on the front, and a 4 speed gearbox, I was spoilt with my 125S.

    The five speed shift caught a few unwares as they’d they to shift from 1st to 2nd as usual, but the Fiat’s strong spring loading towards the 3-4 plane meant they’d go from 1st to 4th.

    Best gear shift I’ve ever driven. On the second to third shift, out of second, pause, let the spring loading take the lever to the 3-4th plane and slot it into 5th.

    I got into American cars, but if I had the space and $$$ I’d like another 125S!

  3. Great site. My parent’s first new car was a 125S, bought in Lae, New Guinea in 1970. Dad had it shipped to the UK, where we met in it Liverpool.
    Then driven through most of Europe to the then Yugoslavia. Returned it ‘s birthplace in Turin for a service, then driven back to the UK and shipped to Australia early 1972.
    My first car, then my sister’s , finally sold out of the family in the mid 1980s.
    Trivia. The New Guinea spec cars lacked the alloy wheels, tachometer and door mirror of the Australian spec’d cars. Much missed by the teenaged me!

    1. Hi Chris,
      thanks for your very personal 125 story ! So your car indeed made long transcontinental journeys … I guess it was right-hand-driven ? In Germany the 125 Special came with the tachometer and left door mirror as standard, but you had to pay extra-cost for the nice alloy wheels too. It seems that in the Italian motherland the door mirror wasn’t standard too. So it is missing in most of the brochure pictures.
      If you had some photos of your 125 S would be nice to see !

      1. Yes, it was RHD. Since New Guinea was an Australian Territory then, you could buy cars without paying the hefty import duties imposed.
        The catch was that you had to own the car for15 months, and put 15,000 miles on it to be able to import the car duty free.

  4. You forgot to mention the production in ex-Yugoslavia by Crvena Zastava Kragujevac, model 125PZ, which was partially realised in cooperation with Poland
