This is a very good idea. There is many interesting details in Abarths what need to know when restore old racing car or make Abarth-tricks. I have many photos of my two Abarth-replica's, whole project is documented step by step. I have also pictures of few original TC/TCR parts wich I have restore, for example water pump is illustrated like this: (this is not my internet site)

There is a short list of informations what could be important when for example make replicas or restore Abarths to original look. In my opinion the important things are:

-chassis dimensions and measures of  fenders etc.
-all kind pictures of separate parts and chassis
-dimensions for separate parts, for example Abarth 1000 TCR’s whisbone measures
-a list of differences between Abarth and original Fiat
-a list of changes according to manufacturing year. (For example, where was the Abarth identification number in Berlina Corsa’s in 1963, 1964, 1965 etc. and when Abarth used the half moon instrument housing in Berlina -series Abarths.)

Somebody else could continue this wish list.

hi guy

i found this strange abarth picture 1952 abarth 1500 biposto coupé
Metallic Blue with Grey leather

Engine: 75hp inline overhead valve 4-cylinder, 1.5 liter, dual Weber Tipo 36 downdraft carburetors; Gearbox: 4-speed; Suspension: front, independent with coil springs, rear, solid axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs; Brakes: hydraulic drums. Left hand drive.

This Bertone-bodied Abarth 1500 Biposto Coupé is the most important barn find in recent history.

It is among the earliest, if not the first, Fiat-based Abarths.

It is Franco Scaglione’s first design for Bertone and the centerpiece of Bertone’s exhibit at the XXXIV Turin Motor Show, April 23 – May 4, 1952.

It is arguably the first design in Scaglione’s masterful B.A.T. series for Bertone.

Unseen in public for some 40 years and only rumored to have survived, it was sympathetically used and preserved for 50 years by Richard Austin Smith, a long-time editor at Fortune magazine.

Although the Abarth 1500 Bertone coupé was not described as a Berlina Aerodinamica Technica when unveiled by Bertone at Turin, its design may explain why Bertone and Scaglione began numbering the famous Berlina Aerodinamica Technica series at B.A.T. 5. The 1952 Turin Motor Show Abarth 1500 Bertone coupé is patently the first in Scaglione’s series of aerodynamic technical exercises, incorporating both concept and details echoed in the subsequent B.A.T.s. It was followed in 1953 by a similar design on a Fiat 1100 chassis which itself was immediately succeeded by the brilliant extravagance of B.A.T. 5 at the 1953 Turin Motor Show.
