In the process of restoring my 58 spider I am encountering a lot of difficulties in finding various parts, much more so than the same era Alfas that are my normal projects. So I contacted Centro Storico Fiat and inquired to just how many of these cars were built, their reply is as follows: "The period of manufacturing for the Fiat 1200 transformable was: January 1957 - November 1958. The car manufactured were 2360." He also added that an additional 349 were produced in 1959 by Pininfarina. I had asked for an approximation of the number sent to the US market, but that info was not available. With this minuscule number of units produced, I can see the difficulty factor on this restoration going up.
