1979 FIAT X1/9 Targa, mid-engine sports car. This car is a true survivor; original and unrestored. Remarkably rust free, it hailed from Oklahoma where current owner purchased it from an X1/9 enthusiast. It came in good running condition. What little sorting current owner has done includes rewinding of a tired alternator, drive belts, spark plugs, CV Boots, some bushings, filters and a tie rod. As is common, the car's mechanical fuel pump has been bypassed with an aftermarket electric fuel pump relocated in the rear trunk. A fresh battery was installed in April 2017.Replaced some tired weather stripping and a few broken trim pieces. That's it! Tires and shocks are good. Motor mounts look fresh. The car starts right up, idles and revs smoothly with no strange sounds or vibrations. The clutch has good modulation and takes up well. It shifts through all forward gears as is it should. Reverse gear is notoriously weak on these cars, but there is no issue with this one although by reputation its treated with tenderness. The car steers precisely and tracks straight down the road. Unassisted disk brakes are more than adequate. It cruises easy on the highway at 70mph in fifth and runs about 180' Fahrenheit all day long in the Texas heat, no sweat. Unlike many other Italian sports cars the '79 X features a single overhead cam engine. Its 1.5 liters rev freely up to its near 7000rpm red line. With a healthy compression ratio of about 9:1 you might think it temperamental but in fact with its non-interference valve train you are actually looking at a thoroughly thrashable low maintenance engine. -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients home -Please Call First and talk to a rep at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 -Showroom is by appointment only Please Call -If you would like a FREE Listing please visit our consignment page or Call
