Ideal for Historic Rallying, Sprints and Hill Climbs and is eligible for International events due to the FIA HTP.
The body is finished in a rather fetching apple green with matte black bonnet. This Abarth was subject to a total rebuild and has participated in only 3 Hill Climbs since the build. The car was completely stripped down everything renewed and revised.
The body/interior was repainted to a very high standard. Underneath looks just as good as the exterior and it really does look factory fresh. The floors are all original with no welding or repairs over the years.
The car currently has the bumpers removed to save a little weight but both the original front and rear bumpers are included.
The interior has been stripped and the inside painted in the same apple green as the exterior. There is a heavy duty FIA Girola 6pt Roll cage fitted with door bars and an additional crossbar for extra rigidity. Fitted to this crossbar is a VDO rev counter.
A period Fusina style Corduroy seat is fitted to an adjustable runner. Accompanying the seat is a Sparco 5point harness in date until 2016.
The original dash is in place which typifies it’s racing heritage with an oil pressure, oil temperature and volt meter arranged nicely together.
