1971 Fiat Other

This is a 1971 Fiat 850 TC Spider. .A very long time sitter. I got it in a package with some other cars.Before I part this out into a million pieces, I will list it here as a complete car. Kind of a shame to pull this car apart as it is a low production number car.We got the engine up and running and it seems to run fine. Did a compression check and it was135, 130,100 and 140. Should even up after some run time. Or not We did nothing else other than put some fuel from a jug to the carb and got it up and running enough to to say it ran. No bleeding of brakes, clutch, etc. So that all would have to be done This car is mostly original and complete. There is pretty good rust on the floor pan and x brace on the back end. And some rust thru on the front floor. Suspension mount assemblies are clean, solid and nice The front trunk pan looks pretty solid. I think a lot of this rust came from sitting in storage . Though I also think a lot of these cars were rusted out by the time they hit our shores after shipping. Being a TC hardtop, this car should be saved.It has very nice seats, the odometer shows like 45 k miles, it has fairly new tires. Both chrome hinges for the hardtop are broken.There is no ignition key and the steering wheel is locked, but mostly straight ahead. The door windows are out but included .That might explain the floors getting wet in storage.. This is a 4 bolt water pump. I already have people wanting the hardtop, the seats, the luggage rack, etc. Before I go that route, I will list it complete for one week.This might be a great project for someone. Personal inspection at my shop in Prescott Valley are more than welcome. Or have someone else look at it for you.. I travel around the West Coast with my truck and trailer and might be able to get it to you or close for reasonable money. . And can arrange trucking to Long Beach California shippers for overseas buyers for $300. Clean straight title.$1000 deposit required within 24 hours of auction end. Full payment due with 7 days
