Got myself another fiat coupe 20vt been off the road since 2016, needs a bit of welding, front coil spring, service and timing belt kit with water pump. Looking at the paperwork the belt was done at 60k 12 years ago
Not the colour I wanted but the car bodywork is in ok for its age

Nothing wrong with that colour in my view-and it looks to have a good finish to bits I can see.

Unusual interior as well - again nothing wrong with that. Variety is spice of life!

You may have a list of jobs - but even on higher then standard revs- that's a healthy looking 3'bar of pressure on the dials....

Your to be commended for taking her on!

Well done, I like the colour, my firm fave is scott’s green followed by your wine red. My recent purchase is portofino! Whichever colour they are truly great cars.

I’m collecting at the end of the month. I like the colour combo with the interior.
It should clean up well and get a nice deep shine.
I miss my old coupe 20vt so have been looking for another one

I’ve had a yellow 16vt, 3 sprint blue 20 vt’s and a silver 20vt before but I like the wine red colour

Another that I liked with it is s/steel exhaust, dump valve plus a k&n filter already on it. It’s been up for sale in London for about 6 weeks and I was the only person to view it got it for £500

Very nice!

There are little gems to be found-I hope this one responds to some TLC.

Today I’ve removed the hid’s as one doesn’t work. So fixed the bonnet cable, number plate lights, wiper blades x 3, replaced headlight bulbs and replaced the broken front spring
