If you decide to buy this car contact me by phone beforehand to arrange a $200 non-refundable paypal deposit and agree on pick up time, amount of time I will hold the car, etc.
Ultimately the car must be paid for IN FULL before it moves!
I will not part this car, or do anything other than assist loading it.
If you only want a chassis, buy the car, part it and sell the parts yourself, don't expect me to do the work for you.
This car, if made to run without any other work, is worth $1500 to the State of Caifornia, just to send to the crusher, under their buy back program.
This is a COMPLETELY, and I stress, COMPLETELY, rust free Fiat X 1/9.
It is a 1979 build year but titled as a 1974
All vin numbers on car and paperwork match and are unaltered original
1974 model year cars are exempt from smog regulations. (attention Kalifornians!)

As impossible as it sounds, it's true, there is not one single structural rust situation, and frankly, other that the slight surface rust on the sheet metal by the small dent on the DS fender, no cosmetic rust of any consequence or significance, either.
I am the 3rd owner.
The vin numbers are original and unaltered and match California title for the car
The car is presently not running as the carb was shot having never been drained of gas. car will need a new carb.
The dash was shot as well and has been removed, I have a very good dash for it.
The seats are newly re-uhpolstered, nicely done
The fuel tank sender is brand new, and I have a very good set of white replacement door/ behind seat, panels ready to use or dye to a new color.
The original color is a nice silver that shows the lines of this car really well, all the under hood, under trunk, and door jamb paint it in good shape. the car has 2 small dents, one on the front DS fender, and a very small one on the DS quarter near the tail light. both are VERY minor.
The hood has been coated with PPG etching/ sanding primer surfacer because it had a lot of very small stone chips on it.
The chrome around the windshield and on top the doors has been removed as well. and primer applied there, again you can take a ice pick to those areas, which are normally trouble rust spots in many cars, and see that they are completely solid metal, no repairs or plastics.All of the trim parts are boxed and present, nothing is missing.
This is a really rare car in this condition.even though it is a parts only vehicle.
I have numerous new and used parts for this car that I will gladly negotiate a reasonable offer on with the buyer if they desire
This auction is only for the car described and shown in the photos, and the parts mentioned, nothing else!
