Cool to read the history of the Fiat 132; our family car when I was a kid and the first Fiat I ever drove.
During its thirteen-year lifespan, Fiat’s D-segment saloon went under the knife on four different occasions, with varying degrees of success. The Fiat 132 was launched in 1972 to replace the 125 Berlina...
[the article uses the acronym 'DLO' which is car design speak for 'Day Light Opening', or windows...)
Although not the purest Fiat experience, thanks to soft suspension and slightly 'woolly' steering, the 1973 Fiat 132 1600 was a revelation compared to the 1979 Morris Marina 1800 I learnt to drive in! Sadly, it met an unfortunate end (luckily while parked and unoccupied) after a hit and run from a 'stolen' bus deposited it in someone's driveway.
