Eyes of the spider: 1970 Abarth 1000 OT

The title teases the soundtrack of Rocky III a little (a film that I really liked when I saw it at the cinema as a child), but it also concerns the number of headlights of this rare 1000 OT.

In fact, there are few cars like this one, both because few have been sold since it was not cheap at the time, and because they were often driven in a “cheerful” way and often the consequence was the encounter with a tree, a pole or a wall, after which they were scrapped because the repair would have been uneconomical.

This is therefore one of the very few surviving, with original black license plate and a beautiful steering wheel that alone is worth much more than the laptop I am writing from. The engine block has the abbreviation AB 205 which should be the correct one, after which an inspection must still be done. Find it for sale at €53,000 (today $56,000) here in Barco di Bibbiano, Italy.
