Buying tips for Classic 124 spider

Hi Fiaters
Not entirely a newbie as I have an Autobianchi Giardiniera, but now fishing for information on Fiat 124 Spiders. A long-time friend is looking to buy himself a Spider, and has asked me to accompany him on a trip to Hofmans in Holland to look at their selection with him.
As there seems to be a surprising range of variants over the course of it's production run, I wondered what advice more knowledgeable members of this forum could us.

My immediate preference would be chrome bumpers, but presumably you miss out on improvements achieved in later developments?
Which is the best engine - again my gut feeling would be a 2 litre twin cam?

My mate is not in any way mechanically minded but probably willing and able to spend money to get and keep a car in fine fettle.
I would appreciate your thoughts and sage advice.
Many thanks in advance
