Whoever is looking for one of these cars in order to restore them, has for sure noticed that the most common issue on these cars is that they are not equipped anymore with the original engine.

And often the problem is not only related to the original engine, but also that the car is not equipped with a correct engine; indeed often the original unit have been replaced with a common Fiat 600 engine as finding the correct “ABA” marked engine is really difficult and expensive.

This car is said to have a matching number engine and that’s really a good news (still to be verified, of course); other than that the car has an aluminium body which has been grought to bare metal so we see that the body has not big issues apart from the missing trims; interiors are acceptable mostly because they still have the instruments which are expensive to buy, seats are odd but we think that the driver seat chassis is original but not correctly trimmed. Find it for sale at $46,500 here in Los Angeles, CA.
