Description

1972 FIAT ABARTH 595.

A rare opportunity to acquire an exceptionally well executed Abarth 595 tribute which started life as an original UK Supplied C16 Right Hand Drive Fiat 500 ‘Lusso’. Registered new in March 1972, the car has remained in the UK it’s entire life.

Comprehensively restored and upgraded, this is the ultimate little pocket rocket that is more than capable of being used as a daily driver, keeping up with modern traffic with ease and cruising at 70mph all day long should you wish.

Invoices totalling over £8’000 since January 2020 alone are included in the extensive history file, showing the ongoing level of love and commitment that has gone into this car to make it so special, and ensuring it’s ready to take on it’s next adventure having recently returned from an epic 600 mile trip around Scotland’s North Coast 500 route where it did not miss a beat and proved fabulously good fun!

A host of driver focussed upgrades, including an uprated 650cc engine and synchro gearbox only tell part of the story- a condensed list of this vehicle’s upgrades can be seen below:

Tuned Fiat 126 650cc engine with side draft Weber 40 DCOE carburettor & twin trumpets, Abarth inlet manifold, Abarth high lift road/ race cam, Abarth/ Nanni oil cooler, Abarth 4L sump, Abarth ‘Monza’ exhaust, Panda 30 gas flowed cylinder head, 123 Electronic Ignition, Electronic fuel pump, Fiat 126 4 speed synchromesh gearbox.

The original drum brakes have been replaced with disc brakes front & rear, Double wishbone independent suspension on the front, sports springs & uprated dampers on the rear, poly bushed throughout, front strut brace, uprated 25mm driveshafts & CV Tripod drive coupling kit, Abarth Speedline 13” wheels.

Further modern additions have been made including LED Headlights, a subtle 12v port for charging devices and digital temperature gauge making this so easy to live with, truly makes for a fantastic weekend toy, though I would love to see it go into daily use with someone as this little car just want’s to be driven and enjoyed.

Now available at a fraction of it’s build cost, ‘VJO 308K’ comes with a huge history file, it’s UK V5C log book, a selection of spares and a custom fit indoor cover.
