’78 Fiat124Spider(CS) Restoration

 

This very sad looking U.S. Imported 1978 Black Fiat 124 Spider CS1 spotted on Gumtree was just sitting there for months and months. I went and spoke to the owner who had no intention to do anything with,  at the high price it sat for awhile to I bought it, mainly because I looked at it and found how clean the floor and shell really is, no rust (Yes NO Rust!!) a very straight good car in need of saving!

Update 1/2018- This build will be starting mid’ to late-2018 and hopefully complete middle of next year, will use the original 1800 motor due to it being low ‘k’ and  all other mechanicals will be looked at and replaced if needed! this will be a Abarth Replica with twin 40IDF carb’ set-up including the “Turtle Airbox” black bonnet and boot , Abarth Rep’ 15×7″ alloy rims!

This Beautiful FIAT Abarth 124 Rep’ will be “For Sale” when done ……as it is a LHD may end up selling in the U.K where they are highly desired!!
