Looks nice, does anyone know this car?

I'm only just getting to know the market but the estimate looks realistic perhaps a shade low though there will be £500 give or take of buyer's premium.

Base model 20vt with a 16v grill and rear badge under the bonnet badge, why? crazy

Colour coded front bumper as well, but the sills and rear bumper aren’t colour coded

Wrong grill as said as well

I wonder if it’s had a bit of a prang

You could put the reg in the .Gov website and look at the mot history. Give you an idea of how many miles it has or hasn't done and if its ever been off the road

Black sills with colour coded bumpers looks weird and almost has the opposite effect of the point of the black sill.....making it look higher up?! 3 keys but was started with the blue and not the alloy, not sure if that was on the bunch in the vid. Hardly any mileage over the last few years.....MoT few year's back shows the car had rot...perhaps this was sorted and the car re-sprayed too, as the body looks rather good.

A coupe at auction.....a very brave buyer.....would have to be seen and inspected beforehand surely for some reassurance if it was closer I would have a look as it looks nice (save for the colour coding mis-match). Cooling fan switch ties in with overheating listed on MoT history in 2014 perhaps the issue was never sorted.

So the story is I have owned the car for 10 years bought as a bit of fun to do a track day with for my sons 18th. Fell in love with it and spent money on it and kept it way longer than I thought. About 9 years ago a truck reversed into it and damaged the bumper cover and the bonnet on the off side. It was very minor damage and the company paid for the repair. As it had bent the edge of the bonnet they sourced a second hand bonnet and bumper and finished up painting the whole car as they couldn't fade the colour in. I changed the grill when I first got it as some of the locating tabs were broken and it was loos. First time I did the cam belt I took the engine out so it was the best time to change it. The cooling fan switch is there as it seemed to get well up the temp guage before the fan kicked in so I didn't want to risk it. The badge on the bonnet is because some scrote tried to relive it of the bonnet badge and scratched it before I chased them off. It's a solid old car that needs a small amount of TLC if you want it perfect. I have lost my storage and don't want it sitting out plus I never seemed to get the time to use it, sad to see it go but it's the best thing if it gets the care it deserves

Amazing what a bit of information and knowledge can do. Goes from looking a bit suspect to understanding how and why it appears the way it does.

Good luck with the sale, hope you get what you want for it.

Many thanks it should make reserve as it does drive very well and as with all 24 year old fiat's have one or 2 niggles. Remote fob doesn't work indicators don't self cancel and speedo reads 10 MPH slow hence the sticker on dash as a reminder
😊👍

Makes sense now why that badge is there, the little scroats!

Good luck with the sale thumb

Yes it was the best option without painting the whole bonnet and half the car again. Wish I had been a bit quicker on my toes but age is a great leveler and at 50 + my 100 mtr dash times ain't what they used to be 😂😂😂

Hi Martc

Just purchased your Fiat Coupe at Mathewsons Auction last week - nice motor. I just need to ask you a few things about the car. How best to discuss?

Cheers

Congrats on your purchase Classic64 - you used to have had to post 5 times to be able to send Private Messages but I've a feeling that as from today it might now be only 2...so post again then you can try PM'ing Martc smile

Well done Classic64 - looks a nice car thumb

Perhaps you want to join some more coupe owners either at the shows at South Queensferry (29th May) or Thirlestane Castle (19th June) and say hello smile
