1980 Fiat Other Bertone Convertible
This is a no reserve listing. This is my 1980 Fiat X1/9 Bertone Targa Roadster with 84. 59 original miles. This is perhaps the cleanest. most rust-free X1/9 you will find for sale anywhere. Not many of these cars have survived in excellent condition- this car is one of the nicest ones left. This is a desirable 5-speed 1. 5L X1/9. Earlier cars had only 4-speed transmissions and 1. 3L engines. This is a fun. great-handling car with the styling designed by Bertone of Italy. This is the same design house that styled Lamborghini. Maserati and Ferrari cars. making this car the "baby" version of it's big Italian sports car brothers. This car has the following equipment and options:1. 5L 4-cylinder engine5-speed manual transmissionremovable targa top convertible roof (stows in front trunk)excellent aftermarket stereo system with Polk Audio speakers. JVC head unit and SPL 600-watt amplifierall interior lighting upgraded to LEDThis car has had a substantial number of recent new parts installed including: new lower control arms and suspension bushings. new Koni struts/shocks. new radiator. new hoses. new steering rack. new ignition coil. new cap and rotor. new plug wires. new air filter. new fuel filter. new tires plus an entirely new interior including new carpet and new seat upholstery and seat foam. Everywhere you look on this car you see new parts. I have a stack of receipts and records that go with the car. as well as a factory service manual and a repair manual plus some spare parts in the rear trunk. The paint and body are in great shape. You might never find another X1/9 with a body/chassis this clean. The underside is completely clean and looks beautiful- even the nooks and crannies of this body and chassis are super clean. The paint has a good shine and looks nice. The previous owner added a set of "Abarth" decals and badges. The interior of this car is superb. The carpet is all-new. The seats have been reupholstered and are outstanding- much better than new. The carpeting in the front trunk is new as well. This is a beautiful interior. This X1/9 starts. runs and drives very well. The engine starts well and it is smooth and powerful. The steering is good. the brakes are excellent (4-wheel disc) and the suspension is tight with no rattles or looseness whatsoever. The transmission shifts properly up and down through the gears. This is the nicest-driving X1/9 you will find- this is a superb-running car you can drive anywhere. There are zero known mechanical issues or problems. This car needs nothing. This isn't a perfect car. The paint is a repaint of decent but not show quality- there is some minor orange peel. fisheyes and dust in the paint job. in addition to a few small spots of clearcoat flaking plus one bubble from a paint chip behind the air intake on the driver's side and a few nicks and chips here and there. I'd say it is a 10-footer. as in it looks perfect from 10 feet away. A word about reverse- reverse works! However you should hold the gearshift in reverse and keep your speed relatively slow or it will pop out of reverse. You can fly in to Cleveland (CLE) and drive this car home.
