This is an interesting car. Another fantastic looking pale blue car, a Murat 124 found in Istanbul, Turkey.
It kind of looks like a Lada. This makes sense because it was this very car (actually the Fiat 124) that was the basis for the birth of the Lada which was produced in Russia until 1988 where it was known as the VAZ-2101, and the Lada 1200 in Eastern Europe.
Nice boxy shape, I like it. The Fiat 124 was featured in the TV series Parenthood, Amber has an orange one. Seems like old Euro cars are popular these days. I can understand why, they look sharp.
The Murat 124 was produced and available in Turkey between the years 1971-1977. Those round headlights are beautiful.
I really like how this one has been dressed up with the yellow and blue racing stripes on the front bumper. Very cool.
Good looking wheels and tires.
Here is a look from the back end of the vehicle. Some good Turkish spirit, and also a couple nice looking symbols to ward off evil.
In total, over 20 million units of the Fiat 124 were produced and sold, making it the 4th biggest selling automobile platform in all time. Remarkable.
I like how that rear chrome bumper wraps around the body of the car. Those are some chunky signal indicators.
Look at the size of that rear window, it is massive!
I have to say I truly believe the older designs of cars are much safer when it comes to overall visibility. Rear windows are particularly small these days on modern cars.
So…there you have it…a mint condition light blue Murat 124…or Fiat 124 depending on how you see it, found on the streets of Istanbul Turkey.
