1979 Spider 2000 Conv top shape


Does anyone know how to tell from a Fiat VIN# whether the car is an “early or late build”, which determines the convertible top shape?


@Spdr79 - Interesting challenge. From a little research, it looks like the late 1979 and 1980 cars received a steel wheel not available on the early cars. Possibly that might give a clue also?

Also might give a call to the Roadster Salon, as they specialize in Fiat 124s and might be able to discern the early and late apart remotely.


Thanks for the info and resource Kyle.
