My own car...a beautiful rust free, excellent example.....primrose light yellow paint (repainted a year ago over a rust and damage free body), excellent tan interior, new tan top, Panasport Minilite alloy wheels, Sony stereo/CD with USB input, excellent drive train (fuel injected with far more power than earlier cars), new timing belt just insalled, 5 speed, four wheel disc brakes (all calipers and rotors new), excellent front end, Abarth cam covers, back up cooling fan, new shocks, quiet exhaust, 140 mph speedo (couldn't stand the 85 mph speedo), spotless trunk, original tool kit, zero rust perforation under floor (was always a Southern car), NO undercoating (which is usually used to hide rust), whatever this car needed, was done professionally.
Wipers were repaired, certain switches replaced, I added an override for the radiator fan thermostatic control switch, replaced a steering arm, had the fuel injection serviced and checked (works perfectly), whatever was needed, we did or had done.
A wonderful classic, very usable, starts instantly, runs flawlessly,
I have enjoyed it for most of 2014, just acquired a Morgan project and the Fiat must go to make room in my barn. to the best of my knowledge, this car needs nothing and most of the work was done by a nearby Fiat expert. It starts instantly, runs flawlessly, zero smoke, will easily cruise above 90 mph, and with the wider tires and expensive Panasport wheels, has phenomenal handling.
Certainly sufficiently clean for most shows and, thus, show-able. All in all, a fun classic for not a lot of money and even room in the back for two kids (yes, we can install two pairs of seat belts).
