Hello Guy,

Good to see this Scorpione SS being restored. All too rare the SS version. Last public photos I saw of this particular car was a posting in late 2009 on another forum when the car seemed to be in the Chatelineau area. Some photos from that posting are photos a,b, c, d, below.

The differences and alterations to standard Fiat 850 chassis, and also to most Fiat Lombardi GP/Scorpione S chassis are of particular interest:..... the removed inner pivot points for the standard 850 rear trailing arms, replaced on the SS by the tubular (TCR) type trailing arms (your photo P1040907, P1040910).......the additional reinforcing plates to forward end of the side chassis rails in the engine bay ( P 1040911,  P1040910)....  upper fixing points for rear shocks above rear coil springs (P1040905).

Other items of interest are....the wheel well indentation in  the front boot floor to fit a wider spare wheel/tyre under the flat type, non fluted, Abarth bonnet (P1040904)......the revised cabin air intake housing immediately in front of the steering wheel (P1040904,  d).

Hopefully some of your future progress photos will show..... the alloy front suspension cross member, the double wishbone suspension and the upper mounts for the front coil over shocks......and the rear tubular suspension arms.

I made the attached drawing   e    several years ago of an SS rear suspension from a range of photos of another SS in the south of France. The hub details neeed to be changed a little further, but I would appreciate some rear suspension photos of your SS as the restoration progresses so that I might update the drawing on items of detail.

As I said, it is great to see one of these SS being restored.

Trevor

each tim I work on this car I come more and more sure this was the first one so the Prototip . Not only the ch no is 850 coupe ,not 104S  our 104 .Today I wish to fit gearbox and find out that clutch/ gearbox  was 850 and take out material to adapt the fitting for separed cardan . Fitting where type Simca  not like in the newer SS Scorpion that I had an one more in my place is. Also the  bearing in the Original  1300/124 engine was 850 and not 124 . Clutch Bellhousing I take PBS and VW  starter ; change  clutch now with the newer bigger OT one . I fit a new 1300/124 engine with exhaustmanifold and two 40 DCOE Weber

Hi there,

Just joined the forum.

Hoping to track down a set of original Abarth seats.

Would you know of any available?

Cheers!

Vin :)
