THE FIAT-ABARTH 1000 OTR

An innovative concern with a sporting pedigree, Abarth branched out from producing induction and exhaust systems, into building limited-production competition cars. One such model is the very rare Fiat-Abarth 1000 OTR (for Omologato Turismo Radiale), a very much modified and Abarth-tuned version of Fiat's more humble 850 Coupe, designed for FIA Group 3 competition. The 1000 OTR was actually considered to be so much better than its contemporary production car racing competitors that some racing organizations, notably the SCCA, banned it from competition – accounting for part of the reason so few of these roadgoing cars were ever constructed. The 1000 OTR offered nearly 100 horsepower from its sub-one-liter "Radiale" engine, a formidable achievement, alas it is thought that only some three-dozen or so were ever produced.

The Motorcar Offered

It is believed that there are only 3 known examples still driving on the roads here in the United States, a further eleven examples are reported as surviving internationally and the vehicle on offer today is one of this very limited group of global survivorsand this vehicle on offer is one of them. Originally exported from new and delivered to an Alfa Romeo and Fiat agent, Henry Mearig Inc., in Lancaster Pennsylvania, the Abarth didn't leave the dealership until John Mitchell, an employee, purchased the vehicle. He would then frequently campaign the racer in local hill climb and track event racking up many wins until an accident in 1970 mothballed the car for 7 years. 1977 would see the car transferred to Brian Hershock, also a Pennsylvanian. For three years he maintained ownership before returning the car back to its original importer Henry Mearig. 10 years would be spent back home for the vehicle, and in 1992 the new owner, Charles Callis, would embark on a restoration. Unfortunately, it was never finished and before long the 1000 OTR would be in new hands. This time Jim Saunders, an Australian enthusiast, would complete a full restoration, returning the car to its former glory in 2006. The car has been back in the States for a few years now and still presents beautifully as it has been lightly used since the overhaul. As the car sits today, it is the single best example of the 1000 OTR on the planet.
