THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Bonhams is pleased to offer what is surely one of the finest Fiat X1/9s in existence! This particular example is the highly sought after and seldom seen 1974 model; the first year of production for the X1/9 in North America. Among many unique features, the 1974 model year is most admired for its small metal bumpers which do not obstruct the stunning Carrozzeria Bertone lines.

Having covered just over 13,000 original miles, the car is in phenomenal condition. The original Sand (code 561) paint has been beautifully preserved, as has the showroom-like interior. To ensure that the mid-engine sports coupe performed as exceptionally as it looked, the country's leading X1/9 specialists went through the car and performed a complete mechanical restoration. A detailed list of the work performed is included in the cars history file. Some of the noteworthy work consists of a rebuild of the engine with choice upgrades to a Euro-spec tune, a new clutch master, slave, disc and pressure plate, along with a lightened flywheel, an overhaul of the cooling system, braking system, and suspension system. It was at this time that the car was fitted with a new-old-stock dual-outlet Super Sprint performance exhaust and a highly sought-after set of mint condition magnesium Cromodora CD-39 13x6 wheels which wear new production, period-correct DOT-approved Michelin TB15 road rally tires with original metal FIAT center caps. Since the work was performed, the car has covered just a few thousand miles. On a recent test drive, the car performed beautifully and was an absolute pleasure to drive.

The X1/9 has been displayed and toured at the Fiat Club of America national gathering in Pittsburgh in July 2015, and more recently featured at the 2018 Hilton Head Island Concourse. Accompanying the Bertone are its original 1974 specific owner's manual, warranty book, service station book, tool kit, jack and spare, in addition to extras which include the original wheels and tires. Whether on the concourse filed, in a museum, or part a significant collection, this exceptional Fiat X1/9 will be sure to draw attention wherever it goes. Do not miss a rare opportunity to acquire a best-of-breed example of a rapidly appreciating classic.
