Title: any chance of finding Abarth 1300 Simca motor
Post by: Simca Abatth1300 on June 07, 2008, 06:33:40 PM
Hi

my friend has a Simca 1300 Abarth , but no motor ,

I know these motors are Abarth only ,

How many motors were built ?
Did they build extra motors as spares ?

Is there any chance he will find the correct motor ?

If not he will put a Fiat motor in it , but really wants to find a Simca motor

Thanks for your advise

Tom

Does your friend have a lot of money?

Guy had a Fiat Abarth Bialbero motor for sale for USD 40K, which is probably market price. 
Since the Abarth Simca motors were much more rare, I would suspect that if he can find one it will cost something like $60-70K. 
Does he have that kind of money?
And if he could get one for that price, would he actually drive the car with it in it or have a Fiat motor for worry-free driving anyway?
I think that except for a few rich collectors those original Abarth motors are museum pieces for display.

Hi.....

well yes he has money,
and he has a Fiat Abarth Bialbero  he could put in it if he has too,

But thats not the correct motor type for his car ,
So did they make and sell  extra Simca abarth motors ?

Any idea how many  motors were built  ?

I would give Paul vander Heyden at Scuderia Topolino a try.  I seem to recall him posting something about these engines recently.
