Smile Croma 1 newbie says hi

Hello fellow Fiat lovers,

finally I have found a suitable Croma for the missus: a 1989 2.0 litre CHT.

Actually it is a Croma 1.5 as it has the carb engine, but facelifted bumpers and interior. The car has been imported from Italy (where else). It has just under 40k miles on it and apart from the obligatory parking dents and scrapes on the front and rear bumpers it is tip top. Everything works and the interior / exterior are in like new condition.

We have taken the Croma to Munich and back on her maiden voyage over this weekend. A 1000 mile round trip without any problems. She runs great and looks even better As soon as I figure out how I'll post some pictures.

If there are any other 'original' Croma owners on this forum that want to share tips and 'war stories' feel free to drop me a line!

Greetings from Holland,
Croma Dirk

Re: Croma 1 newbie says hi

Hi, Welcome to the FF.

I had a MkI Croma Turbo ie for about 18 years. It's long gone now though.

I still have the Fiat workshop manual if you need to know anything from it.

Not many left in the UK. Only 3 Croma Turbos, either taxed or declared off the road.
