Sports Car Shop has much experience with the many Abarth variants and the unique atributes to the bodys and drive trains they posses. These quickly appriciating italian jewels require a masterful and well researched approach. We at Sports Car Shop have dedicated ourselves over the years to aquiring the knowledge and subtle cues that define these cars. The often alloy bodies require a special talent and patience to correctly restore them to a finished form. Many are done without the commitment necessary to correctly bring them back. We at Sports Car Shop are well suited with the talent and passion to take these little jewel like cars to a finished and accurate presentation.
Please see below for some examples of our work and sales.
Abarth Cars Currently in Restoration or Available for Sale
This little Coupe will need a restoration, but is an excellent starting point. The alloy body has very old paint and shows signs of just a little filler. The steel floors are original and in decent condition. The body does have minor dings from long-term storage. The nose is in good condition as shown by the headlight covers and original trim around them. The car has been stored inside for 30-35 years.
Abarth Cars Previously Restored or Sold
The car was to be assembled with perfect mechanicals and the original components as it was raced in the late 50′s and early 60′s. We were to include the documented special dual braking system as fitted by the first owner. All interior components that could be salvaged were to be reinstalled and returned to the original color. The half dozen cardboard boxes of components we received with the car were invaluable in allowing us to complete this early, small taillight car with most all its original components. Every component found it those boxes were assessed for originality and installed back on the car. Even the original headliner was found and reunited with the interior.
This car has been kept running and garaged most all of its life. It has just been treated to new brakes, front suspension overhaul, and basic tuning to freshen it and make it a usable classic car. This car is an honest example that can be used and will attract admirers wherever it is displayed. Just a lot of fun in a small package. Zagato, Alloy, and Abarth are three keys to the present and future value of this car.
Production figures are unclear, but most likely 20 some cars were constructed and this is one of 10 or less that still remain in the world. The documentation goes well before the delivery of the car. It even included signed a letter from Carlo Abarth expressing apologies for the late delivery of the car.
