This next spot is a really smart looking little car, and a whole heap of fun too I would imagine. This Fiat 500 was restored and converted to Abarth specification with a new 650cc engine professionally rebuilt to racing standards and Oselli tuned. Alloy barrels, gas flowed heads, fully balanced and with a deep alloy sump. Fuel is fed into a Dellorto FZD carb, which was fitted with a new sport inlet manifold in 2013. Electronic ignition fires up the engine with sound augmented through the sports exhaust.
Upgrades by Middle Barton Garage in 2012 costing £4,300.00, include recommissioning after a long period off the road, new Spax gas adjustable lowered front and rear shock absorbers and an Abarth 595/695 front leaf spring. Minilite style wheels shod with Bridgestone tyres and wheel arches complete the Abarth conversion.
There is a comprehensive history folder with many different elements including a Classic Car Weekly article. There are also bills for over £8,600 which is quite impressive for a small car. What a fantastic little car this is, and one that you could fit in any garage too! Guide price is £6,500-£7,500. Bargain.
