In the modern industry, there’s a clear distinction between Ferrari and its parent company, Fiat. Confusing the two is virtually impossible, although that wasn’t always so. In the 1960s, the line between Fiat and Ferrari was still there, but it wasn’t nearly so well defined, thanks to the addition of the Dino line.
And while we could essentially write a dissertation on Ferrari, Dino and Fiat, let’s just say that it wasn’t at all difficult to find a Dino-badged car that could still set your hair on fire. One such car from those halcyon days of Italian automotive production is the 1968 Fiat Dino Spyder, shown in the latest video from Petrolicious.
Now, this isn’t the exotic, mid-engined Dino. Rather, this is a sporty, but humble, Fiat-badged convertible, that’s a bit lesser known. Still, it’s a truly gorgeous car, and this example, owned by Danny Soukup, is a prime specimen of that rare 1960s Italian car. Scroll down for the latest video from Petrolicious.
