Gawd, takes me back to the hours I spent a) poking at my rusty old Sport and b) prepping the front end/engine bay of my subsequent 2litre Super Estate, which was in pretty good shape and was going to become my Sport Estate in racing red with Konis etc, but I had to give up on it and sold it to Guy Measures. Where is it now? - I'm sure he didn't let it rot.

131 Sport Estate? Funny you mention that as I was day dreaming just last sunday about such a creation. Imagine it given the RS4 treatment, lowered, wide 16inch alloys, abarth bonnet and wings, tidy roof spolier and nicely tuned TC, retrimmed inside,. etc. Mmm. Wonder was one ever done - Love to see some pics if there was.

I thought about that too Kev.Imagine it with a trailer on the back with a 131 abarth rally car aboard and all the spares inside.It would have to be painted orange of course!

How cool would that be?!

Hi. Congratulation for your great page, I'm a Fiat`s entusiast from Chile and I just buy a 131 Mirafiori. The car needs restoring and I'm thinking to do a job like that. Could you please e mail me more pics of that restoration. My email is pancho_455@hotmail.com Here a link to my car picture

Hi there.
I dont think he's taken any more photos since those above.
When he does though,i'll update this thread with a progress report and some fresh pics.

Hopefully,it should have some bright orange paint on it by then!

Hi there,
Good to see so much care going into getting the beast back on the roads. i know the previous owner and remember it to be a good fast car before he took it off the road and dry stored it.
Any chance of any more picks being posted so i can show them to the previous owner? he will be pig sick with envy on your progress.
Good luck, nick......
