This 1980 Fiat X1/9 sports coupe with removable Targa top, shows 96k miles and is power is delivered by a 1.5-liter inline-four paired with a 4-speed manual transaxle, and modern upgrades include push-button ignition and a Bluetooth stereo. Since purchasing the car the seller has replaced the clutch and cooling hoses, lightened the flywheel and some of the belt pulleys, installed a new alternator belt, repaired the valve cover gasket, and more. Finished in a red wrap over a tan leather interior, this X1/9 is now offered with a clear Georgia title in the seller’s name.
This X1/9 is wrapped in red with a black vented hood and rear deck but retains its factory coat of brown paint underneath. Exterior features consist of a front air dam, a removable Targa top, and a new brake and signal lamps. Both bumpers have been removed but will go with the sale.
New 7-spoke polished aluminum wheels have been installed, and these are wrapped in with tires of unknown age. The seller reports that the brakes have been replaced.
The interior is trimmed in tan leather bucket seats with matching door panels, a dark brown dash, and a new black carpet. A push-to-start ignition has been added, as has a Pioneer head unit with auxiliary inputs. Black leather seat covers are fitted due to some tears in the driver seat, the glove box is unhinged, and the factory center console with gauges has been removed. The car does did not come from the factory, but the seller notes that preparations have been made such that it can be added if desired.
Instrumentation is framed by a 4-spoke steering wheel and consists of an 85-mph speedometer, a reverse-sweep 8k tachometer, and gauges for voltage, coolant temperature, and fuel level. Aftermarket gauges for voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature have been added. The 5-digit mechanical odometer shows approximately 96k miles, which the seller asserts is true and accurate.
Power is delivered by the matching-numbers, mid-mounted, carbureted 1.5-liter inline-4 mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle. Recent work includes a valve cover gasket repair, replacement of the radiator, alternator belt, air filter, and coolant hoses, installation of a new clutch with a lightened flywheel, and addition of a custom exhaust system.
