Vintage R&T Review: 1974 Fiat Sport Coupe 1800 – “A Larger Engine Keeps It Lively”

We covered the original Fiat Sport Coupe (AC) here in rather considerable detail. It was face-lifted twice and received several bumps in engine size and power in the US, to keep up with weight increases and the power-sapping emission controls. This is the final version, which now had a 1.8L DOHC four. It did the trick in keeping performance stable during this time of increasing malaise. And although it had its charms, the Fiat Coupe was starting to show its age a bit, stylistically in any case.
