It was during a beautiful summer evening walk in the neighbourhood Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin that I came across this well kept sedan, a 1972 Fiat 125p.
This motor vehicle was produced between the years 1967-1991 in Poland by the state-owned manufacturer Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych or FSO for short.
Check it out. The gold shade of rims really go nicely with the burgundy paint.
All that chrome looks fantastic, the bumpers, the door handles, trim around the windows, the side view mirrors. Very sharp looking indeed.
Here it is coming at ya from the front view.
Now those circular headlights look incredible peeking out of that gorgeous chrome grille. Why they replaced it with a black plastic grille in 1973 I have no idea, the chrome looks so good!
This is what Endangered Cars is all about – appreciating brilliant design details from years past. It’s a shame cost cutting is so crucial, it almost always leads to uglier design. The turn signal indicators look pretty sweet too with the wraparound chrome.
Here is a look from a front and side angle. Great looking front bumper. Cool side view mirror, I love the small size and simplicity. This Fiat 125p almost looks like an older BMW.
The gear shift is incredible, very nice detail.
Finally, a look from the rear of the car. Cool blinkers.
And so there you have it, the fabulous 1972 Fiat 125p!
