As Les said this hounds tooth insert was quite common on the later targa-cabrios but I've never seen it on an early full carbriolet. The seats in this car should have the upper part of the side hinges covered with vinyl and not be exposed as in the later cars. That will tell you if the front seats are form the correct era.

Carpet isn't original.

Plus on the face of it that car is pretty cheap and has been for sale for quite some time - caveat emptor!

Plus on the face of it the price is on the low side for Italy/Europe and it has been for sale for quite some time - caveat emptor!

it was built, and whether it's a 1600 cabrio or a 2002. Remember that cabrios were Euro only (except Carl Nelson's apparently unique car), so they would have had the "old" non-safety steering wheel, chrome trim on the dash etc that were only removed for the USA versions to meet Federal safety requirements.

As for the seats, early 2002s had "wide" front seat backs, at least through part of 1969 production. These seat backs have upholstery that covers the inboard chrome seat recliner mechanism and are wide enough so that you can't get your arm between the seats as you can on later cars.

Is the car in the US or still overseas?
