I have a 1969 fiat 850 spyder, where can I get parts for it cheap, I live in N.J.?

If you want to get them cheap, you will have to get a few fiat 850s to use as parts cars. A fiat 850 is cheap if it is something the seller wants to get rid of. When you buy a part, the seller knows you have to have it, so you will pay thru the nose.
If that spyder is from Jersey, jt may have too much rust to make it a car that is worth maintaining.

You didn't say what you were looking for - mechanical parts or body and trim. I've found that most common Fiats are pretty cheap when it comes to routine maintenance parts, but get expensive when you start getting into body panels or other model specific parts that aren't in production anymore.
Here's someplace reasonably close (Fiat specialist in South Jersey):
If you're looking for additional parts sources farther afield, here are some of the best (In no particular order):
I've done business with all of these guys, and never had a problem with any of them. Most of them specialize in new parts, but I know Danny O'Donnel at funimported has a large stock of used and secondhand parts as well - he might be a good first place to check, and not too far away in Connecticut.
I also know a guy who's going to be scrapping an 850 Spyder in Reading, PA. It's rough, but depending what you need, he may have it.
