Spain 1973: Seat places 4 models in Top 4, 127 leads

Seat 127

Thanks to Ricardo, I can now share with you the best-selling cars in Spain almost 40 years ago – this is the oldest data yet for this country on Best Selling Cars Blog. At that time Seat produced rebadged Fiats and had a total stranglehold over the Spanish market. The Seat 127 is the most popular model with a mammoth 91,435 sales. The 127 would go on to lead the Spanish models ranking for the following 5 years up until 1978, peaking at an enormous 125,066 units in 1974, still today the highest volume ever reached by a single model in one year in Spain.

Renault also was very popular that year, placing the Renault 12 at #5, the Renault 5 at #7 and the Renault 6 at #8… Lastly the Simca 1200 ranks 6th at 37,895 units.
