The Fiat 124 is a mid-sized family car manufactured and marketed by Fiat between 1966 and 1974. The sedan superseded the Fiat 1300 and Fiat 1500 and was complemented by variants including a station wagon (with stiffened springs and a revised final drive ratio changed), four-seater coupé, two-seater spider convertible and a slightly lengthened and more luxurious version, the 125, launched in early 1967.
The 124 is known also as the basis of the Russian-produced Lada produced until 1988 and other licensed variants manufactured worldwide, that when aggregated onto the original Fiat production run, take the 124's overall production at nearly 20 million units, making it the fourth biggest selling single automobile platform of all time. The 124 was superseded in its home market by the slightly larger Fiat 131 Mirafiori.
