Description:

1979 Fiat X-1/9 Targa

1979 FIAT X1/9... AKA "HFX" TURBO...
STARTING PRICE IS WHAT I HAVE IN THE CAR FOR MATERIALS... YOU WON'T FIND ANOTHER "X" ON THE PLANET THAT COMES CLOSE TO THIS. TRULY A ONE OF A KIND. NEW PROJECT ON THE WAY...

THE VEHICLE HAS UNDERGONE A COMPLETE RECENT FULL ROTISSERIE RESTORATION. RE-POWERED WITH A GM ECOTEC 2.2L AND GETRAG F-23 5-SPEED TRANSMISSION...

LONG BLOCK WAS SOURCED FROM A 2005 COBALT. ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY MACHINED AND FULLY BUILT WITH ALL FORGED INTERNALS, WISECO 8.9.1 FORGED PISTONS, ARP HEAD STUDS, COMETIC, EAGLE "H" BEAM RODS, COMP CAMS, 440CC INJECTORS, 255LPH EXTERNAL FUEL PUMP. HEAD HAS HARDENED SEATS AND BRONZE GUIDES. UPDATED ALUMINUM RADIATOR WITH DUAL FANS. CUSTOM HOOD LOUVERS FOR RADIATOR DISCHARGE.

AUDI TOP MOUNT INTERCOOLER WITH SNOW PERFORMANCE 6 JET CHARGE COOLER AND 400CFM SPAL PULLER FAN PULLING FROM BELOW. THE PUMP SPRAYS THE INTERCOOLER UNDER HIGH BOOST CONDITIONS, THIS IS ADJUSTABLE... FLOWMASTER "FX" EXHAUST MUFFLER SOUNDS GREAT WITH NO DRONE.
TURBOCHARGER IS A HYBRID MITSUBISHI TDO4-19T WITH A BILLET WHEEL IN THE 9-11 INDUCER/EXDUCER CONFIGURATION. CAPABLE OF FLOWING 550CFM AND 20+ PSI OF BOOST @ 6500RPM'S... CURRENTLY RUNNING 10PSI OF BOOST MAKING AROUND 300HP.
BODY WAS TAKEN DOWN TO BARE METAL AND ALL DISTRESSED AREA'S WERE CUT OUT AND REPLACED. UNDER CARRIAGE WAS ALSO STRIPPED, FLOOR PANS REPLACED ALONG WITH NEW TRUNK PANS. ALL COOLING TUBES REPLACED. ALL SEAMS WERE THEN SEAM SEALED AND THE ENTIRE UNDER CARRIAGE COATED. 6-POINT CAGE WELDED IN. I WILL ALSO INCLUDE ABOUT A HALF GALLON OF LEFTOVER PAINT/HARDENER MATERIALS SHOULD YOU NEED IT.
ROTA KENSIE 8/9 STAGGERED WHEEL SET. WIDE BODY FENDER ADDITIONS ARE ALL METAL WELDED TO THE BODY. ADJUSTABLE DUAL REAR SPOILER COLOR MATCHED WITH POWDER COATED STANDOFFS. CAR WAS PRIMED, SEALED AND SPRAYED WITH PPG SINGLE STAGE "PORSCHE LAVA ORANGE" SAME COLOR AS THE 2017 PORSCHE GT3-RS.

ALL NEW BRAKES, LINES, DRILLED AND VENTED ROTORS, CALIPERS, WHEEL BEARINGS, TIE RODS, STEERING GEAR COMPLETELY REBUILT, NEW MASTER CYLINDER, CLUTCH MASTER AND SLAVE.
NEW 2-WAY ADJUSTABLE COIL OVERS ON ALL CORNERS. 1200.00 BY THEMSELVES.

ALL NEW INTERIOR, DOOR PANELS, WINDOW REGULATORS, CARPET, SEATS WERE RECOVERED, FULL VDO GAUGE SETUP WITH FUEL, OIL PRESS, TEMP, VOLTAGE AND BOOST. WIDEBAND IN CONSOLE. BLUETOOTH RADIO. HECK EVEN THE GLOVE BOX LID WORKS.
WITH A 0.152 POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO, THIS IS COMPARABLE TO THE 911-S TURBO,VIPER AND THE NISSAN GTR AND THERE'S STILL MORE POWER TO BE MADE. FACTORY ECU TUNING IS DONE USING HP-TUNERS INTERFACE THROUGH A DEDICATED OBD=II PORT IN THE ENGINE BAY.

NEW 128 HEATER CORE AND HEAT CONTROL VALVE, FAN WORKS AS DOES HEAT. THIS WAS A NON A/C FROM THE FACTORY. WIPERS WORK, ALL HEADLAMPS, TURN INDICATORS, RUNNING LIGHTS, HORN. EVERYTHING.

I COULD LITERALLY GO ON AND ON AS THERE IS NOT ONE ASPECT OF THE CAR THAT WAS NOT RECONDITIONED IN THIS BUILD... THIS IS TRULY A "ONE OF A KIND" VEHICLE. VEHICLE HAS EXTREMELY QUICK AND DECISIVE HANDLING. THREADS THE ROAD LIKE A FIGHTER JET. I AM 6'-2" @ 215LBS. IT'S A BIT TIGHT BUT NOT CRAMPED...


AS WITH ALL CUSTOM VEHICLES, THERE IS NO WARRANTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. VEHICLE IS SOLD AS IS WHERE IS. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL ANY AND ALL BIDS AS THE VEHICLE IS ALSO BEING SOLD LOCALLY. IF YOU HAVE ZERO FEEDBACK CONTACT ME FIRST AS YOUR BID WILL BE CANCELLED.

I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT ANY INTERESTED PARTIES CONSIDER VIEWING THE VEHICLE IN PERSON FIRST HAND. MY STANDARDS ALTHOUGH EXTREMELY HIGH MAY NOT BE REPRESENTATIVE TO YOURS. I AM OPEN TO THIRD PARTY INSPECTIONS WITH PROPER COORDINATION.
