1971 Otas project / parts car FOR SALE
« on: September 12, 2007, 03:39:39 AM »
I went to look at this today

is it a Tigre or a Scorpione . Grand Prix ?????

originally from Texas, now in the Los Angeles area

Vin number is 0034

no motor , no rear glass, no rear hood,
no rear tail section (were these fiberglass ?)

what is in the photos is all thats there

rust in bottom of doors

can be  delivered to your shipper in Los Angeles area

I have more  photos

things I need are a couple 1050cc motors to fit in my  600s, some abarth sumps and intakes and other stuff for a 600

The gauges look correct to me, though the switches are different - vertically-mounted individual toggle style switches, not the horizontal triple rocker switch unit (like Fiat 850 Coupe). I can just barely see what looks like the small Lombardi "fl" shield logo at the bottom/center of the speedometer & tachometer.

What do the metal ID tags in the engine bay say on them?

Anything like these?

Hi

here are all the  pics I have ,

its not easy for me to get over and look at it ,
If I go  back again I will need to buy it,

and I really do not have a place for it,

Did this one have anything to do with Abarth ?

thanks for your help

Dave

hallo Dave ,it had nothing to do with abarth but the instrauments look the same like a abarth but than there is abarth on it .Those are rare .The bonnet must be flat one for a abarth to.

Thanks for the information Guy

is the gearbox a stock Fiat 850 ?
or special gears ?

Stock read drum brakes ?

I do not really need it , I figured I could trade  it for parts I need....

As far as I know these cars were all stock Fiat 850 running gear -- only the body was different.

The attached word document, -a copy of page 110 of Greg Schmidts  "Fiat and Abarth Tricks"  - schedules differences comparatively between Otas/ Lombardi GP/ Abarth Scorpione

Hi D ve,

Did this car ever re-appear? I'd be interested in it, if it re-surfaces.

Cheers,
Duane

Thanks Dave, I appreciate the reply. It's a shame, I hope it went to a good home (or donated to a worthy cause). To many of these things are starting to get crushed...there's even a nice, but highly over-priced Alfa 2600 Sprint for sale here in Australia, with the seller stating his price must be met or the car will be crushed and sold for scrap!!! How these people are allowed to get their hands on such beautiful cars I'll never know.

Grant, I'll drop you an email soon...the money for the lowering blocks should have cleared by now. Would like to talk to you about the next step!

Cheers,
Duane
