Hi

Looking for a restoration project. Remember growing up as kid being around these pretty little cars as my dad used to have the fiat franchise. Always fancied having one of these as a weekend car. Please pm me if you know on any available. Would prefer to buy through here rather than eBay etc.

Many thanks

James

Good luck with your search. My advice would be buy on body condition. The mechanicals are pretty robust and available, interiors aren't to bad, body work in the key.
Certain areas are very difficult to repair and with very few repair panels available making it all the more difficult.

what Speedy said is true. however it is always cheaper to buy one that has been done up. body is still key though. Take someone with you who has one.

Hi David

Point taken, taking someone with me that already has one might be difficult though as there are so few left.

Thanks

If you say where you live some one may be near by, I live in St Austell, Cornwall and would be glad to help.

Thanks you for your offer really appreciate that. I’m based in Somerset. I will keep the forum posted if I find anything suitable but I guess it will depend on where the vehicle of interest is located.
Many thanks
