Fiat passenger cars (1960-1970): books - history

A book on the Fiat (1960-1970)? Here are illustrated books on the history, models and technology of Fiat passenger cars.

Les plus belles FIAT des années 1960 à 1990 (Autofocus)

Fiat n'est pas un constructeur généraliste comme tous les autres. Si la marque a produit des voitures populaires à des cadences élevées, elle a toujours proposé des versions plus sportives présentées dans ce livre.
Dessinées et produites le plus souvent en Italie en plus petites séries, ces sportives sont mécaniquement dérivées des modèles de grande production. Même en s'habillant chez les plus grands carrossiers et en gagnant en sportivité et en luxe, ces voitures restent accessibles comme l'ensemble des Fiat.

Dans ce livre consacré aux plus belles Fiat des années 1960 à 1990, nous avons privilégié les coupés et cabriolets extrapolés des berlines de tourisme, de la 850 à la 128, en passant par la 1500 , la 2300 ou la 124, sans oublier les versions plus prestigieuses avec la Dino 2,4 l, le coupé 130 mais aussi la plus humble avec la 500 dans sa version Luxe.

Grâce à ce livre, régalez-vous des musiques émises par le six cylindres de la Dino, de la Fiat 2300 S ou du cinq cylindres du coupé 20 V. Percevez le plaisir de leur pilotage à travers les dynamiques X1/9, Barchetta et coupé 850. Bonne route au sein des plus belles Fiat !

Fiat 1200 - 1500 - 1600S (1959-1966)

With support from Pininfarina and the Maserati brothers' OSCA, Fiat ventured into crafting its version of the quintessential Italian open-body car. The lineup of cabriolets, featuring engines ranging from 1200 to 1600 twin-cam models made in Bologna, emerged as a viable alternative to Alfa Romeo during the Sixties. These cabriolets boasted a more understated demeanor compared to their counterparts, yet delivered performance on par with their peers.

This book meticulously chronicles the history of Fiat cabriolets, tracing their inception and subsequent developments. Brimming with numerous illustrations and detailed technical specifications for each model, it offers a comprehensive exploration of these iconic vehicles and their impact on automotive history.

Fiat 1300-1500 (1961-1967)

The Fiat 1300 and 1500, produced in the 1960s, epitomized elegance during a period of economic prosperity in Italy. These sedans were refined and tasteful, appealing to the sophisticated Italian bourgeoisie who valued understated elegance. The station wagon variants, though innovative for their time, were not fully understood or appreciated.

This book chronicles the complete history of the Fiat 1300 and 1500, from the initial project inception to subsequent developments. It is filled with numerous illustrations and detailed technical specifications for each version, providing a comprehensive overview of these iconic vehicles.

Fiat 1800, 2100 e 2300 - Le vetture che hanno fatto la storia

The Fiat 1800 and 2100 (and later the 2300) represent the flagship models the Turin-based firm offered in the mid-Sixties to a clientele looking for a large, elegant, robust and reliable car at a price undercutting the contemporary Lancias and Alfa Romeos. Along with the classic saloon versions, a modern station-wagon and a ceremonial long-wheelbase variant were also offered. They were all powered by a refined straight-six.

The range was extended in 1961 with the splendid and powerful 2300 S Coupé bodied by Ghia, one of the most successful and attractive Fiat sports cars, while the following year it was the turn of the more economical four-cylinder 1500 L.

This book tells the story of the birth and development of this significant family of Fiat cars, presenting the technical issues and historical details of the various versions produced. Equipped with detailed technical files and illustrated with numerous contemporary images, the book also provides a very useful guide to restoration and invaluable maintenance tips.
