SEAT 133.jpg

SEAT 133/Fiat 133/Nasr 133. 1974–83 (prod. 190,984 in Spain, incl. 18,689 in Argentina). 2-door saloon. R/R, 843, 903 cm³ (I4 OHV). Essentially a rebodied Fiat 850, but with 1970s’ styling, created by SEAT itself. For the Spanish market only initially, but exported with Fiat badges to other European nations. Especial in 1975, with tuned 0·8 engine and front disc brakes, addressing early concerns. De luxe model called Lujo, which could be specified with the Especial engine. Rack-and-pinion steering from 1976. Range eventually dwindled as 133 fell out of popularity, leaving just the Lujo for its final year in Spain. Spanish production at SEAT ended 1979. Sevel in Argentina built the cars from 1977 to 1982 as Fiats (with only the 903 cm³ engine). Sporty 133 T IAVA (Industria Argentina de Vehículos de Avanzada) model from 1979, with 50 PS rather than 40 PS thanks to higher compression. Facelift in 1981 with 133 Top IAVA model, gaining a sloping plastic front nose, refreshed interior, and other attempts at modernization. Also assembled in Egypt by Nasr with CKD kits, with the production line later transferred there in 1980 after Spanish production ceased. Egyptian production to 1983.
