Hello,

This is a project from Thailand.

Let's start my project from my first love...
This car:

And I also found this photo from Google.

So, these cars are the inspiration for my project. Thanks to the owner of them. :)

.
.
.

After I knew the name of the car. I tried to find a Fiat 850 Berlina in Thailand, hard to find ... but finally I've got it!


This car has been stored for 13 years.



Luckily, the engine was still the original!


And the interior was not too bad.



.
.
.

Up to 16 months for studying and collecting parts from many countries.










I started from overhaul the engine.




Step-By-Step






Finally it's ready for the first start!




And ... Start!!! (YouTube VDO Clip)

Smooth and clean.

Next step is the suspension and painting.
To be continue...

Any advices or comments please share.

Thank you for reading,
Toon from Thailand.


Note : Dear Guy. Sorry, I can't find the Abarth OT1000 sub-forum. So, please move if you have a proper forum.

You are very right Guy! ... My decided wheels are around 1-1.5 inch bigger. I need some photos of the extended fenders for the reference. Could you please give me some advice?



Front 1"


Rear 1.5"
