1994 FIAT PANDA FIZZ
The Fiat Panda is now in its third generation. The first generation Panda was introduced in 1980, and was produced until 1986, when it underwent several changes. From 1986 until 2003, it was produced with only a few changes.
In January 1986, the Panda received a substantial overhaul and a series of significant mechanical improvements. Most of these changes resulted in the majority of parts being changed and redesigned, making many of the pre-facelift and post-facelift Panda parts incompatible between models. The 652 cc air-cooled 2-cyl engine was replaced by a 769 cc (34 bhp) water-cooled 4-cyl unit, and the 903/965cc by a 999cc (45 bhp, 50 bhp (37 kW) in the 4x4) unit. Both new engines were from Fiat's new Fire family of 4-cylinder water-cooled power plants with a single overhead camshaft. The rear suspension was also upgraded, the rear leaf springs being replaced by a more modern independent suspension system using a rigid rear axle (known as the 'Omega' axle) with a central mounting and coil springs. The 4x4 retained the old leaf sprung set-up, presumably to avoid having to redesign the entire 4WD system. Improvements were also made to the interior and the structure. The body was strengthened and fully galvanised on later models, virtually eliminating the earlier car's strong tendency to rust. The rear panel design was also revamped to include flared arches that mirrored those of the front wings, replacing the un-sculpted style seen on earlier models, and the doors received a slight redesign with the earlier car's quarter light windows being removed and replaced by a full width roll-down window.
Fitted with the 999cc FIRE engine, (Fully Integrated Robotised Engine), the Fizz is surprisingly lively, producing 45bhp in an instant fashion. Quiet and remarkably economical, due to the simple single point fuel injection, the model offers very low running costs but maximum reliability and tremendous fun.
The example offered here has covered just 3,232 (three thousand, two hundred and thirty two) miles from new, in the hands of a single lady owner. The car comes complete with full service history and all previous MoT certificates in support of the very low miles.
