I purchased this car used in 1973 after my new one was totaled in a highway accident. Everything useful from it, including the original interior, transmission and driveline went into this one. Around 1980 the less than perfect front fenders the car came with were replaced with new factory panels and the car was repainted with all trim removed in acrylic enamel. Since then it has had a full mechanical, frame off restoration of the brakes, suspension and driveline, fully detailed with fresh plated hardware. At that time, the engine was replaced with a 1972 1,608-cc twin-cam, completely rebuilt with new pistons, Camillo Alquati cams and a pair of Weber 40 IDFs. The 13-inch Fiat-Cromodora wheels were optional when the car was new. Although the odometer has 108,800 miles showing, it has less than 1,000 miles on the mechanical restoration. Garaged always, this is a drive anywhere-go anywhere, turn-key GT, two kids in the back seat touring car, owned by a long-time Abarth/FIAT marque enthusiast.
