lI have to say before I start that “I do like a Twin-cam” and Mr Lampredi knew what he was doing when he designed this one for Fiat! The 1600cc version under the bonnet of this nice Seat (Fiat) 131 Supermirafiori that we imported from Spain, is an excellent example of this. Helped no doubt by being owned for many years by a mechanic that specialised in early Fiats, it’s now 40 years old and still just as willing to be rev’d and enjoyed, especially when mated to an also excellent 5 speed gearbox.
Interior is very good, just the piping round the edge of the drivers seat is showing its age in a couple of places. Otherwise really quite plush for its age.
Exterior wise it has just had a full respray in its original colour as like any non restored 40 year old car that had spent its life in a hot country, its paint had faded into various hues of white and it had picked up various “bruises” over the years but most importantly “No rust”. This is why we go to the trouble of finding these rare and now sought after cars in countries with better climates than ours, countries that don’t throw corrosive substances all over the roads each year that eats the metal used in cars of this era ( Not just Italian ones either!).
Now fully UK registered as tax free “Historic” its ready to go and be enjoyed. So if you are a fan of Italian saloon cars of this era, looking for a car to take too and show at Classic Car shows , its also likely to be the only one there, or just want a great driving classic car to use every day, then this could be the one.
