Description

This classic car is for auction at online auction platform Catawiki. Please click here to place a bid an to find more information about this. An Italian classic.More than 2 million units were built, but there are few left today.This one in particular only had 4 owners in 49 years. With original registration document and number plates of the time.While driving it, you will be brought to another world: the gearbox lever must be moved gently and everything is mechanically controlled. To each action corresponds a reaction.Unexpectedly brilliant, it's very enjoyable to drive. The engine has its own sound; you can feel that everything works without electronics, in a genuine way.This car is not intended for the highway (besides, at the time highways hardly existed); it makes you forget of being in 2019 in every situation: grabbing its steering wheel really brings you back in time.Safe drum brakes; driving with a little vivacity is really fun. It has a synchronized gearbox as most city cars of that period, but the double clutching helps make it work better. Mechanically ok, everything works as it should.Brake pump, brake pistons, brake hoses, brake shoes, brake oil and engine oil were replaced last year. The engine has no leaks, it works well.Tyres are old, so we recommend to pick up the car with a trailer. If not possible, I can replace them at buyer's charge before the pick up.The most critical point, the spare wheel compartment, is remarkably rust free.It was surely fully repainted but it is in fair conditions now. The paint has become matte over the time and shows some minor bubbles. Bottom is healthy both inside and outside, as well as the doors interior. The car can be considered fully rust free.The vehicle can be viewed and tested in Luserna San Giovanni (TO) - Italy.
