Banned from California: Clean 1971 Fiat 850 Special

This 1971 Fiat 850 Special looks like a nice example and was recently imported by the seller. He shares an odd story of an inability to get this 43-year-old car registered due to an emissions issue. Does this make any sense? We’ve never heard of it. Find it here on eBay in Palm Desert, California. Special thanks to BaT reader John K. for this submission!
