BaT Auction: 1980 Fiat X1/9 at No Reserve

This post was originally published on this site

This 1980 Fiat X1/9 shows 56,106 miles and was purchased by the seller approximately two months ago. The car is finished in brown with gold exterior decals over a two-tone beige and brown interior. Power comes from a 1.5-liter SOHC inline-four paired to a factory 5-speed gearbox, and exterior features include a factory removable targa top. This Fiat is now being offered at no reserve with a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name.

The X1/9’s exterior was styled by Bertone, and features a removable targa top in black and pop-up headlights. 1980 model year cars saw the side mirrors move from the doors to the quarter glass. Per the seller, the entire car was repainted at some point prior to his ownership, and a new decal set was applied as well. Factory badging, trim, and bumpers have been retained.

This particular X1/9 features 13″ split-spoke alloy wheels, which were mounted with new 175/70 tires in October 2018. Four-wheel disc brakes were standard equipment.

The mid-mounted carbureted 1.5-liter SOHC inline-four produced approximately 67 horsepower when new, and drive is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
